OTS attracts trade interest

New and returning exhibitors sign up for autumn’s OTS, with 89 already set to exhibit

New and returning exhibitors have helped the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) grow the number of company’s booked to attend five month’s before the doors open.

Some 89 companies have already signed up to exhibit, a 15 per cent increase on the number five months before OTS 2010. This includes new names Timberland, Yellowstone Camping and Alt-Berg, as well as returning brands that have exhibited previously but were not in attendance at OTS 2010, such as Anatom and Result Clothing.

The show will take place on September 26-28 in the exhibition halls at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire and cover 7,500 sq m of exhibition space.

OTS organiser Marta Williams said: “OTS was set up by the trade, for the trade, and represents an important opportunity for companies to showcase their products to over a thousand retailers.

“The demand for a UK trade event means the popularity of OTS has grown year-on-year, with all the leading outdoor accessory brands eager to be a part of the success. With companies keen to secure their previous locations, many of whom have even opted to increase the size of their stands, OTS 2011 promises to be the biggest year in the show’s history.”
