The Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) opens its doors on the 29th June at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool to welcome retail buyers and representatives from all aspects of the outdoor industry. This will be the first opportunity for many brands and suppliers to meet their customers again ‘face to face’ in a ‘Covid Safe’ environment rather than over Zoom or on the phone and it promises to be a vibrant show with the industry demonstrating it resilience to the Covid pandemic with strong retail sales from a healthy demand for outdoor products.
Over 110 suppliers are supporting the show this year and are showcasing an extensive range of innovative products from a variety of outdoor, leisure and lifestyle brands. A visit to OTS is a must for any retail buyer looking ahead to secure orders for next Spring / Summer, stay ahead of their competitors and seek out new brands to add to their product mix. Everything from clothing to footwear, climbing products to rucksacks, tents, torches, GPS, socks, sleeping bags and stand up paddle boards are on offer from most of the leading brands in the industry. New brands that recognise the importance of the show and are exhibiting at OTS for the first time include Helly Hansen, Montane, Rab, Halti, Salewa / Dynafit, Dewerstone and Dometic and these join the long term show supporters such as Burton McCall, Craghoppers and Vango.
Now entering its 15th year, OTS has stood the test of time, moving to a new venue this year, the modern waterfront exhibition centre in Liverpool the show offers that ‘one stop shop’ opportunity to see everything at the same time all under the one roof. The city centre location makes access easy and visitors are encouraged to pre-register in advance HERE on the OTS website. It’s a great place to network with industry colleagues, benefit from show offers, place forward orders and learn what is going on in the industry. Without international travel and the absence of the European shows this year, OTS really has become the focus and hub of the whole UK outdoor industry this year.
