Associate Membership

The PPA Associate membership has been specifically created to assist play operators before they launch. This will give you a head start in the industry and will help you to better understand the market place through a regular e-newsletter. The PPA has also written a highly successful Start Up Guide for new operators giving advice and case studies from PPA members. We have also on this site put together a specific Start Ups section for new operators. As an association we do not wish for more competition in this exceptionally tight market place, but we do want to educate new operators and encourage them to be new, different and unique with their centres. Associate membership is £100+ VAT per annum and forms are available from the Associate Membership page.

Suppliers Scheme

The PPA suppliers scheme launched in December 2010 for the start of 2011 and is designed to increase the number and value of cost saving benefits offered to PPA member operators. The Scheme see's a tender process launched and an exclusive supplier appointed in various product categories, with suppliers picked based upon the deal provided to the association and it’s members as a whole as well as the quality of the product or service provided by the company in question.
