Join us for a free Grow with Hoop event where we reveal incredible insights from our Hoop Awards 2019 and announce the criteria for the 2020 Hoop Award shortlists! 

The Hoop Awards are the family activity sector’s biggest awards voted for by parents. Over 100,000 votes were cast to find the most loved activity providers across over 20 cities nationwide.

We’ve closely analysed the activities run by 2019’s Hoop Award Winners and identified the trends that make an award-winning activity. As part of this special event, we’ll also share key insights into the shortlisting criteria for 2020 and what you can do now to give yourself the best chance of winning.

The session will share valuable information about:

  • The Hoop Awards shortlisting criteria - Get the inside scoop on the criteria we’ll be using to shortlist the top Organisers in 2020. We’ll also be happy to answer any specific questions you might have about the Awards

  • How to optimise your listings on Hoop - Find out what will make your activity listing stand out, and how 2019 award winners reached more new customers with their activities on Hoop
