OTS reports increased demand

The Outdoor trade Show’s organisers have reported healthy demand for space at the 2008 show, which takes place between September 30th and October 2nd at Stoneleigh Park.
Over 85% of available floor space has already been pre-sold with many of last years exhibitors being so pleased with business done at the show they have increased the size of their stands. New brands such as Lifemarque, Tilley, Ultra Sport, Big Agnes and 1,000 Mile Sportswear have all recognised the importance of the autumn show, booking stand space before the show becomes a total sell-out. Hi-Tec have increased their presence at OTS by bringing their mobile showroom to the show to highlight their complete footwear range.
Commenting on the early signs of another successful OTS, show organiser, Alasdair Scobbie from MCS said: “We are really pleased with progress to date, it’s re-assuring to have the majority of floor space sold out, six months prior to the show.
“Stoneleigh is proving to be a popular exhibition venue due to its central location in the heart of the Midlands, excellent transport links and ease of access. We are expecting that retailer buyers from the multiples as well as leading independent stores continue to support the show, recognising that OTS provides a real focus in the UK for the outdoor trade. It provides an opportunity for suppliers to showcase new products for the following season as well as offering short term pre Christmas top up opportunities to buyers.”
