WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING !
Damon Street – Exxel Outdoors, European General Manager,
OTS was a fantastic show. We had back to back appointments and the quality of buyers attending was spot on. Aside from it being a great opportunity to get in front of people, it was great to see the trade working together and Kelty and Sierra Designs will definitely be back in 2023.”
Steve Walton – Northcol, Sales Agent,
OTS provided yet again a great opportunity to reach our current customer base and speak to new customers alike. The show felt busier than normal and was a fantastic meeting place to discuss the current state of the trade. Liverpool is a great location. We will be back next year for sure.
Chris King – Ardblair Sports, Head of Sales,
For AKU and LEKI, ASI had the ideal balance of number and quality of meetings with retailers and media. After many years, it feels like the outdoor industry has found the right balance of limiting the choice of market format – shows, showrooms and shop visits - in order to make OTS the success it is.
Richard Payne – Páramo, Commercial Director,
Many thanks to all those involved in the organisation of this year's event. It was fantastic to welcome everyone to our stand, great to meet new faces and re-connect with others. Thank you to all those who joined us in celebrating 30 years of Páramo by welcoming Craeciones Miquelina into our newly formed employee-owned group. Here is to the next 30 years!
Chris Gordon – Lyon Equipment, Marketing Manager,
As usual the OTS show was a busy and productive show for us, the earlier time brought it inside the deadlines for our key brands and make the show a great place for final buyer presentations and gave customers a chance to make final range decisions.
Lee Taylor – The Brandery, Sales Director,
With so many brands under one roof, all showing tomorrow's new products, why would you make the mistake of not being at the outdoor trade show?

“I’m delighted to report that Bradshaw Taylor enjoyed a productive show across all brands.
