OTS 2018 was hailed a success by all, with 950 trade visitors attending the show, representing a 7.5% increase from 2017, and more buyers chose to stay at the show for longer to accommodate the increased number of exhibitors.

Show organiser Marta Williams, from MCScommented: “With OutDoor by ISPO moving to a later date slot, it was important that OTS fulfilled the requirement of UK brands and retailers and followed the success of the 2018 event. Most exhibitors and visitors agreed that the week after the Munich event fitted with their order deadlines and it offered good logistics for those needing to move their stands and samples from Germany to Manchester.
Following the successful partnership with ROKS last year, the 2019 show is set to be the largest trade event of its kind in the UK industry calendar. The unified show finally brings together exhibitors from across the UK in one central location, and all under the same roof for the first time.”
“We have already had unprecedented re-booking from 2018 exhibitors with over 75% of the brands from this year already booked for 2019. The new Manchester location, quality of visitors and laid back atmosphere made last years’ show a great success. ”
