LIW 2002 featured five individual shows covering all of the out-of-home leisure industry: Body & Soul - a health, fitness and beauty event; FamilyLand - the family fun event for parks and attractions; Food For Leisure - dedicated to catering opportunities for leisure sites; Leisure Environments - the light, sound and design event and Leisure Solutions - covering everything needed to run any successful leisure business.
The number and breadth of trade associations supporting the show and using it to host their events reflects LIW's role as a forum for its industry. These included the Fitness Industry Association (FIA), the Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management (ILAM), the Sports & Recreation Trusts Association (SporTA), the Sunbed Association, the Bar, Entertainment & Dance Association (BEDA), the Showmen's Guild, and Holiday Centres Association. Visitors were also treated to live demonstrations, hundreds of new product launches and opportunities to experience a number of special 'hands-on' features on the floor of the show. International Leisure Industry Week 2003 again takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 16th to 18th September.
