Why should you register to attend OTS 2018?

Almost 100 exhibitors already booked – register your attendance now
Online visitor registration for the Outdoor Trade Show 2018 is now open. But why should you attend?

The KEY reason is the quality and variety of brands the show has to offer.

OTS has always attracted the biggest names from across the industry and offers a great mix of outdoor and leisure brands ready to show you their products. And with the show’s new location – EventCity in Manchester – which is convenient for both Northern and Southern retailers, there is now even more reason to attend!

Taking place from Tuesday 3rd to Thursday 5th July 2018 , OTS has already secured nearly 100 exhibitors ready to showcase their latest products and innovations for the next season!

This year OTS is very pleased to welcome leading newcomers Berghaus, Berg Outdoor Sports, Craft, Danner, Lowe Alpine, OMM and Osprey, as well as attract the continued support of brands such as Craghoppers, Regatta, Mammut, Mountain Boot Company, Lyon Equipment, Keen, Black Diamond, Sprayway, Ronhill, Hilly, Altra, MSR, Therm-a-rest and Outdoor Research.

There has also been a great increase in technical and climbing brands exhibiting at the show, including Beal, Beta Outdoor Sports, Five Ten and Crux & Lightwave.
Still need convincing? Then take a look at what attending retailers are saying about the show…

“We have already registered to attend OTS this year in Manchester and we will be bringing six key staff members over two days. We are not going to any other shows and informing our suppliers that we just want one show and this is it.”
Paul Casey, Hooked on Granite Ltd. T/A Joe Brown Shops and The Climbers Shop

“Retailers are presented with too many opportunities and invitations by suppliers to review products. The ability to come to one venue and see many brands under the one roof all at the same time makes perfect sense. We believe that a UK national show that unites the industry is very important for our trade. The move to Manchester a week earlier and with ROKS joining as well makes it even more relevant for us and our buying team. Attempting to consolidate the trade into one national show with a real focus is the solution and at JD / Blacks we will be supporting this initiative in 2018.”
Lee Bagnall, CEO of JD Sports Outdoor Division
