The National Farm Attractions Network (NFAN) Conference and Trade Exhibition this year moves location. The 2014 event, previously held at Drayton Manor Theme Park in Staffordshire, will take place at The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.
The main conference programme takes place on Wednesday 12th February, with delegates able to learn from industry colleagues sharing experiences on topics such as school visits, catering and gift shop secondary spend. The programme also provides attendees with an opportunity to learn from the NFAN 2014 Farm Attraction of the Year winner, due to be announced the previous evening during the NFAN Awards Dinner.
The trade exhibition runs in conjunction with the conference and provides a forum for delegates and suppliers working within this sector of the visitor attractions industry to meet face to face.
For the third consecutive year, UK mascot maker and licensed character events company Rainbow Productions will have a presence on the trade show floor, with the company based on Stands 26 and 27. Rainbow has also arranged for a popular licensed character to meet and greet delegates during appearances scheduled to coincide with breaks in the NFAN Conference Programme on February 12th.
Rainbow Productions already works with many farm parks across the UK, managing the personal appearances of famous characters such as Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The NFAN event at Harrogate provides an invaluable opportunity for Rainbow Productions to meet existing clients, potential new clients and to talk about recent new additions to the licensed character portfolio, new licensed character activities offered as well as the company’s bespoke mascot costumes service.
