About the INPAS Bouncy Castle Expo & Trade Show
INPAS Expo and Trade Show was conceived in 2008 following requests from the inflatable play industry after rising costs at other venues made these shows far too expensive.
The challenge was taken up by Grand Affairs Group, who have been involved in the inflatable play industry for over 25 years, and in just five short months the first INPAS was held in March 2009 at Stoneleigh Park Exhibition Centre in Warwickshire.
INPAS has continued to grow and remained at Stoneleigh Park until 2013.
There have been a number of comments made by exhibitors and visitors along the way and these have been noted by the INPAS team and it was felt that for the 2014 show we would look at finding a different venue and re brand the show
However, for a number of commercial and economic reasons it was decided to bring forward these plans for INPAS 2014 and despite the added pressure the team has managed to complete phase one of the planned development. The team has been expanded and we are pleased to welcome Bouncy Castle Network as the headline sponsor for INPAS.
Phase one was to produce a new logo, new web site, new marketing strategy and source a new venue. Bouncy Castle Network have designed our new logo, this web site and are coordinating the new marketing strategy.
A new venue was confirmed for 2014 and we used Hangar 42 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire.
For 2015 we moved to The Event Arena at Wood Green Animal Shelter London Road Godmanchester Cambridgeshire, where we were able to offer exhibitors extremely competitive rates
Following the success at INPAS 2016 we returned to Wood Green Animal Charity for INPAS 2017
Despite adding more space (using marquees) at INPAS 2017 we have outgrown Wood Green so, after much negotiation, we are moving to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool for INPAS 2018 and INPAS 2019. The available indoor space has been increased by 300% and all under the same roof.
The current INPAS web site is being continually developed and links developed with additional media partners and organisations.
