New Brands Area launched

Have you booked your stand at OTS yet? With the move to Manchester this year, the show is filling up fast, with just under 100 exhibitors booked for the July show.

This year’s Outdoor Trade Show is to once again host a special area dedicated to new brands looking to showcase their products to retailers. This year the New Brands Area has slightly larger stands, following from feedback from exhibitors and visitors and it is limited to just seven brands that have not exhibited before at the show.


Limited to 7 brands that have not exhibited at OTS before, the New Brands Area is a dedicated display area which gives smaller brands the opportunity to break into the market and showcase their new products to the trade at the low cost of £460  + VAT for a 2mx2m stand and £495 for 3mx2m as well as this complete package:

  • A 2m x 2m shell scheme exhibition booth with dwarf dividing walls (one stand is 3m x 2m)
  • Name facia board
  • Carpeting
  • Shared overhead fluorescent lighting (one between two booths)
  • A 13 amp power socket
  • Access to shared furniture (central tables and chairs) for customer meetings
