This September, Stoneleigh Park opened its doors to over 130 exhibitors and almost 1,400 visitors for the 7th year of its annual Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) – the UK’s only national outdoor trade show. Amongst these exhibitors was our Leisure team, who attended the three day event for the first time.
With a mix of different brands and product ranges on show, OTS attracts retail buyers who specialise in general outdoor sports and activities, including independent outdoor retailers and specialist camping retails, as well as general sport retailers.
Following our expansion into the leisure market last year, with current ranges including OLPro, Maypole, Polco and Mont Blanc to name a few, OTSproved to be an excellent opportunity to showcase the range on offer to this new target audience.
Positive feedback was received on both the stand layout and tent selection, with particular interest shown in the chemical and lighting ranges.
Kelvin Heaney, FPS Category Manager, commented, “The Outdoor Trade Show was a great opportunity for us to present our offering of leisure products to the market, while reinforcing our high service levels and delivery options. It also provided us with a mechanism to gain feedback from our existing customers, as well as potential new customers, all of which will help us to shape our range in the future.”
