The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI), the UK’s leading trade association for landscape professionals, will launch a new website by January 2019 in support of its more than 900 active Registered garden and landscape designer, landscape contractor, supplier and training provider members. Following an extensive 12 month review of the association’s current website offering to members, the public, and trade visitors, BALI has now selected a new partner, NetXtra, to deliver a fully integrated website aimed at delivering next generation membership engagement and enhanced promotional features to help generate business for BALI members.
BALI’s marketing and communications manager, Darren Taylor, commented on the partnership:“With BALI Registered members contributing over £6bn to the UK economy and employing over 100,000 staff, it was vital that we secured a new long-term partner to help us deliver an enhanced website experience.”
He continued: “Member feedback over the last year has helped me and the Landscape House team to produce an improved specification that better supports, engages and inspires member businesses and individuals by offering a fully integrated solution with our customer database.”
NetXtra has a solid and proven track record of delivering strategic creative digital solutions and complex integration projects.
NetXtra’s chief client officer, Simon Butler, said “It is rare to find a client whose ambition matches our own. BALI has an exciting vision to take member engagement into a new dimension – NetXtra will use every arrow in our quiver of digital services to bring this vision to life.”
He continued: “The BALI team has a very progressive strategy and approach to supporting its members and we share this vision, which is aligned with NetXtra’s company ethos, creating a formidable and powerful partnership.”
