Skydive the Expo | 24-25 January 2020


BPA Skydive the Expo is the biggest consumer skydiving event in the world. This must-attend free event features exciting and educational talks from some of the biggest names in our sport, as well as our legendary exhibition of all the main manufacturers and gear dealers.

Throughout the day, catch up with all your friends from around the world, attend the seminars, talk to the people that make your gear and even pick up a bargain.

Don’t miss the annual awards, celebrating great British achievements in skydiving, as well as the awesome free prize draw.

Skydive the Expo is also home to the AGM of the British Parachute Association, which is free to attend for all BPA members.

The evening features a formal black tie dinner for those that fancy it, the more informal meal in the hotel restaurant for those that don’t, or a plethora of takeaways, all of which lead in to the most epic skydiving party of the year with live music and a DJ in to the early hours of Sunday.

Skydive the Expo is held at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham and is easily accessible from all parts of the world.

2020 is already shaping up to be our biggest yet and we can’t wait to see you!
