The NMTF works hard in the interests of our members.

We lobby government through the increasingly influential All-Party Parliamentary Markets Group (APPMG) and hold regular talks with other organisations involved in the industry.

The NMTF lobbies parliament to oppose legislation we believe would be detrimental to our members and the industry.

We will continue to fight to enhance the markets and events industry and preserve the livelihoods of our members.

One of the ways we are doing this is through the Mission for Markets campaign, run in partnership with the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA).

In addition, the NMTF also negotiates at the local level with market operators and provides advice and guidance to members on any small business matter.

As a member of the Genesis Initiative, NMTF is active in Europe, making positive attempts to influence EU legislation before it becomes law.
