From a CLA statement, the CLA have confirmed that the decision to cancel the 2016 Game Fair has been taken by the board as the event failed to generate enough income for sustainability in the past three years.
Director General of the CLA, Helen Woolley said in a statement to Pull Magazine
“The Game Fair is an important and well loved event with a long tradition. It is a difficult decision that we regret having to take. We are extremely proud of the Game Fairs that we have put on in recent years and we are grateful to our Game Fair team that has delivered these high quality, professional events. Unfortunately an increasingly crowded summer calendar of outdoor events has contributed to falling attendance in each of the last three years. This has led to the event failing to generate enough income and has made the event financially unsustainable”.
