The Country Land & Business Association will no longer run the CLA Game Fair, and is cancelling the scheduled Ragley Hall event in 2016.
After three years of declining footfall, the CLA will go out with a whimper following the 2015 event at Harewood House, and the director general of the CLA, Helen Woolley spoke of the association’s regret in a formal statement: “We are clear that the Game Fair can no longer be run by the CLA in its current form. We will, however, begin a period of consultation in which we will invite proposals from other organisations on how the Game Fair might be able to continue.”
In a message to CLA members, president Henry Robinson said that “the event did not meet its targets for exhibitor and sponsor income, and most of all we saw a further decline in attendance.”
