Outdoor Trade Show sets dates for 2022

The UK’s Outdoor Trade Show has set dates of 7 to 9 June for its 2022 edition, once again to be held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The decision to move the show to slightly earlier dates in the year compared to the 2021 edition was made following consultation with exhibitors, visitors and the wider outdoor industry. The ideas is that the show will now align better with buying deadlines and enhance its appeal to more brands and buyers from around the world. 

For 2022 the show will occupy all three halls at the exhibition centre, an increase of around 2,000sqm, allowing for more brands to be represented and more space for networking and potential specialist areas.

Marta Williams, from organiser MCS PR & Events, said: “We are very excited for the 2022 edition of the event. Following restricted travel during Covid and pushing for a Net Carbon Zero industry, exhibitors and retailers not wishing to travel to overseas events, we now have a UK National Trade Show in line with buying timelines, allowing decisions to be made with minimal travel and carbon footprint.

“This puts OTS at the forefront of outdoor events and with the return to normality post Covid, we can build on the success of the Sustainability Breakfast and plan more networking in the vibrant surroundings of the Exhibition Centre Liverpool.”

The decision to adjust the show dates has proved popular with exhibitors with Equip Outdoor Technologies CEO Matt Gowar stating: “Following the success of the first OTS in Liverpool, I am really pleased that OTS has listened to both brands and retailers and moved the show three weeks earlier to hit the perfect timing for a summer show.  We will be supporting the show again in 2022 and I really hope that OTS will go from strength to strength.”
