OTS 2018 – now open for exhibitor bookings!

New Venue: EventCity, Manchester

New Partner: ROKs joins OTS

New Dates: 3rd – 5th July 2018

The UK’s largest outdoor trade show is now open for exhibitor bookings! The Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) 2018 will take place from Tuesday 3rd to Thursday 5th July 2018 at its new venue, EventCity in Manchester, and will once again provide exhibiting brands with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their product ranges to retail visitors.

The booking form and latest floor plan are now available to download here.

OTS Organiser Marta Williams said “We have had a fantastic reaction to the new venue and the move to the North West so far, with many of last year’s exhibitors having rebooked and some increasing the size of their stands. We have also had interest from new brands to join the show, due to the continued support from major retailers to bring their buying teams in July next year. We are once again supporting OIA Members by offering a discount on stand space.”  

As OTS and ROKS 2017 exhibitors have had the opportunity to book in advance, the organisers have already received around 40 bookings, including 2pure, Ark Consultants, Bradshaw Taylor, Buffera, Burton McCall, Cadac, Grangers, Lyon Equipment, Hi-Tec, Keela, Scott Sports, Silva, Thule, Vango and Vibram.

The first new exhibitor to book for 2018 is Osprey. Head of Marketing, Jonathan Petty said:

“We’re thrilled to announce Osprey Europe’s attendance at the successful & acclaimed Outdoor Trade Show in 2018. We’re looking forward to meeting our current and prospective customers to showcase both our new and existing collections. As the UK’s leading pack specialist this is a fantastic opportunity to be surrounded by passionate outdoor enthusiasts who have a shared interest in high quality and innovative packs.”

The decision to move to the new Manchester venue follows exhaustive research with retailers and exhibitors that reflected a common desire for the creation of ‘one unified trade show’ with dates best suited before order books close and at a location convenient for both Northern and Southern based retailers, and as ROKs organisers shared the same objective, they have decided to merge with OTS for 2018. EventCity, Manchester offers quality exhibition space, facilities and easy access with its proximity to the M60 motorway network.
