It’s time to find the best outdoor products of the year.
The Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) has launched the 2019 UK Outdoor Industry Awards.
They are now open to entries from brands across the UK outdoor industry and will close on June 22, 2018.
Award categories include Accessories, Backpacks/Travel Luggage/Bags, Camping Equipment, Climbing Equipment, Clothing, Footwear, Sleeping, and Tents/Awnings, Family Products, Digital Products.
All products entered will initially be displayed to over 1,000 visitors at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS 2018), the UK’s largest outdoor trade exhibition, held over July 3-5, at EventCity, in Manchester. At the event a panel of expert judges will select the finalists in each category.
The products will then be displayed within a dedicated area to over 90,000 consumer visitors at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show on February 19-24, 2019, allowing them to vote for their favourites in person, as well as online.
The 2018 Awards received 102 entries across the ten categories, as well as a great amount of media coverage and over 2,000,000 impressions on social media, before the panel of expert judges, including specialist outdoor retailers and journalists, proclaimed Katadyn’s BeFree bottle as the overall Product of the Year at the OIA Conference in March.
