Exhibitor bookings rise for OTS 2017

Published: 31/01/2017

The UK’s largest outdoor industry exhibition, OTS 2017, is all set to be another successful year thanks to variety of new and existing brands that have already signed up to showcase their product ranges to retailers, over five months ahead of the opening day - the latest floor plans and booking form are now available to download at www.outdoortradeshow.com.

Taking place from Tuesday 11th to Thursday 13th July 2017 at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, many of last year’s exhibitors have rebooked and some have even significantly increased the size of their stands, including Craghoppers, Lyon Equipment, Mountain Boot Company and Regatta.

Regular exhibitors, returning to OTS for the 12th year in a row, include Arctic Fox, Buffera, Burton McCall, Keela, Lyon Equipment, Mycoal, Nikwax, Rosker, Snugpak, Trespass, Vango and Whitby & Co.

New exhibitors, looking forward to attending OTS for the first time include: Accapi Group, Dolomite/Scott Running, Falke, HJ Hall, LedLenser, Outdoor Research.

As announced previously, in a move to further embrace the extraordinary work of the Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) and become more representative of the whole trade, OTS has gifted the trade association a share of the show’s ownership. As a result of this new partnership, OTS organisers are offering an early bird discount to OIA members booking before 20th March 2017. Those interested in joining the association can email info@theoia.co.uk for further information.

OTS brings buyers and sellers together under one roof and attracts the key players of the outdoor industry, providing a fantastic opportunity for distributors and manufacturers to showcase their new and existing product ranges to over 1,000 retailers.

The annual ‘one stop shop’ exhibition also allows retailers across a variety of markets to see a wide variety of brands presenting clothing, footwear and accessory products in the exhibition halls, at the same time as allowing camping retailers to browse through the hundreds of tents and awnings on display outdoors. Online visitor registration will be open shortly.
