Vote for your favourite new outdoor product online now!
New partnership with the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show
Online voting for the UK Outdoor Industry Awards 2018 is now open, which provides an opportunity for consumers to select their favourite new outdoor products. Votes can be placed via www.theoia.co.uk/awards/.
Not only can outdoor enthusiasts vote for their favourite finalists online, but they will also be able to vote in person and see the products at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show in February (20th – 25th) 2018, where the finalist products from all ten categories will be on display to almost 100,000 consumers within a dedicated area at the NEC, Birmingham, which will be supported by Ordnance Survey.
This is the final stage of the awards process, following over 100 entries being received across ten categories. All products entered were on display and shortlisted by a panel of expert judges (including specialist outdoor retailers and journalists) in July 2017 at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS), the UK’s largest outdoor trade exhibition.
The finalists across the ten categories are available to view at www.theoia.co.uk/awards/.
All votes received will be entered into a prize draw for 10 lucky winners to win an OS Maps 12-month subscription, which provides Great Britain’s most detailed mapping at your fingertips and unlimited access to over 1.4 million ready-made routes. The OS Maps app by Ordnance Survey was the 2017 winner of the Digital Product category. Ordnance Survey’s high profile campaign #GetOutside aims to reach and inspire even more people to get active outdoors.
Online voting will remain open until the 28th February, and the winners of each category will be officially announced at the Outdoor Industries Association’s (OIA) annual trade conference on 14th March 2018, taking place at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire.
