Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) has confirmed the dates for its 2019 show as 9th-11th July.
The show has taken what it called “exhausting research” with retailers and exhibitors, discovering that 85 per cent preferred the week after OutDoor by ISPO (30th June-3rd July).
Show organiser Marta Williams said: “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.
“We are now welcoming requests from existing and new exhibitors to secure stand space for next year’s OTS and look forward to starting to plan for an even more successful show for all in 2019.”
OTS 2018 welcomed 950 trade visitors over its three-day event, representing a 7.5 per cent increase from 2017.
