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 want just 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
