‘The only winter show for the snowsports and outdoor trade this season’
Slide & OTS Winter gains huge prominence as a unique trade event for snowsports and outdoor exhibitors and retailers alike following the recent announcement yesterday that the traditional January ISPO show in Munich will now move to a November slot (28th – 30th 2022). This means that the trade is now left without a European show for selling-in winter product ranges for the 2022 / 2023 winter season.
In January 2022, Slide & OTS Winter (18th – 20th January) now becomes even more of a focus for brands and retailers as this is now the only opportunity for brands to showcase the latest product ranges and innovations and for snowsports and outdoor retailers to place forward orders to guarantee stock for delivery for the following season.
If you haven’t already secured your stand space at the show, there are still stands available, as highlighted on the latest floorplan HERE. To confirm a stand, complete the booking form HERE or contact the organisers for further information.
Show organiser Lesley Beck commented that, “The latest news from ISPO and the absence of a European show this winter means that our 2022 event is more important than ever to the UK trade”.
The show has attracted 79 exhibitors with all the major snowsports brands represented as well as outdoor brands keen to present their winter ranges to UK retail trade audiences and media. Recent exhibitors signing up include HOT Sportswear and Citrus Lime. To visit the show, you can easily pre-register HERE on the website.
Telford International Centre is easy to get there either by road using the M54 or rail (less than a mile from Telford Central Station) and with 1500 car park spaces on-site, parking couldn’t be easier. On-site hotels next to the exhibition centre have provided reduced rates for visitors who wish to stay in the area and further details can be found HERE.
