Nick Thompson, deputy managing director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach will open the InterFun Expo to be held at the New Dock Hall, The Royal Armouries, Leeds, UK, on April 28–29, 2020.
Having visited the expo in 2019, the Pleasure Beach director said he would be delighted to open and attend the event.
Thompson was brought up in Blackpool and first started work at Blackpool Pleasure Beach as a schoolboy.
Having travelled the world experiencing different aspects of the leisure and tourism industry, he returned to his roots in 1993 to take up a position as catering manager in the family business. In 1994 he was promoted to group catering and retail director and also became a board director.
Thompson also holds the post of head of the sponsorship committee, which involves negotiating with high profile companies. In this role, he attended the International Attractions and Amusement Parks Association business course at Cornell University in the United States.
He became deputy managing director in 2004 and has worked with Pleasure Beach managing director Amanda Thompson OBE to transform the amusement park.
In 2017, Thompson became the first ever third generation chairman of the British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions. He follows in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who both previously held this prestigious post.
