UK Outdoor Industry Awards 2017

Awards Logo

The finalists for the 2017 UK Outdoor Industry Awards were announced on 7th September 2016 in an award ceremony at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS 2016) Party (sponsored by Vango, celebrating 50 years outdoors), which was brand new for this year's show.

All 100 products entered were on display at OTS, the UK's largest outdoor trade exhibition, giving the trade an opportunity to see the wide variety of products which are brand new to the outdoor market.

Combining online 'trade only' votes with the expert opinions from the judges panel, the finalists selected in each category are listed below.

All of these finalist products will now be displayed to over 50,000 consumers at The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show in February (16th - 19th) 2017.

The winners of each category will be officially announced and congratulated at the AGM gala dinner during the OIA Conference in March (15th - 16th) 2017, taking place at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.
