The organisers of the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) and ROKS (Scotland) are launching a new outdoor industry trade event which will be known as the OTS Northern Roadshow.
The event will take place at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, Murrayfield, Edinburgh, from January 8-9, 2019, and offers brands and sales agents a cost effective opportunity to showcase new product ranges to retail buyers and outdoor & snowsport industry related organisations.
The extension of OTS, North of the Border and the collaboration with ROKS (Scotland) follows on from the incorporation of ROKS (Kendal) earlier this year into the main summer OTS event at EventCity, Manchester.
Sam Fernando, from Keela, said: “I’m pleased to have built a successful trade event and I’m very keen to keep on enhancing the exhibitor experience and that the roadshow event continues to evolve for everyone’s benefit. It makes sense to have the involvement and expertise of OTS going forward and I’m pleased to be handing over to Alasdair and Marta from MCS who will take things forward in the future.”
OTS organiser, Marta Williams hopes that the January event will attract visitors from around Scotland and the North of England.
She said: “The OTS Northern Roadshow provides an opportunity for local retail buyers and we aim to build on the success of the roadshow that Sam has already created. Bringing the OTS brand to the table gives it industry endorsement, visibility and credibility and demonstrates the further unification of trade events under one banner.”
Previous exhibitors will be contacted directly and further information and details will be available shortly on the OTS website at http://www.outdoortradeshow.com
