What an Expo that was!

Thank you to all members, guests, sponsors, speakers, supporters, entertainers, organisers and venue De Vere's planning and delivery teams that made BPA Skydive the Expo 2017 at EMCC Nottingham such a success on Sat 28 Jan. Special thanks to Marie Reynolds and her team at Eventpro UK in Loughborough who took care of logistics. Feedback is that it was the bigest and best BPA Expo yet. Videos of seminars will be going online in due course, please keep an eye on BPA social media. We hope you had a great time meeting friends and living life through our incredible sport. Next year we do it all again at EMCC on Sat 27 Jan 2018.
