Ocean Media Group is to hold a new three-day consumer show next spring called the Outdoor Leisure Show, it has been announced.
According to the event organisers, the event will take place in Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre (NEC), running alongside the Boat and Caravan Show between February 25th and 27th.
The show will be targeted at groups, families and individuals from the midlands and north of England who are looking to spend time outdoors, whether that's going for fell walks, climbing or exploring places of natural interest.
Commenting on the launch, Outdoor Leisure Show's event director Andy Gibb said research has suggested that there is a need for an outdoor leisure show targeted at those from the midlands and north of England.
"We have a successful track record with the Boat and Caravan Show - about to celebrate its 50th anniversary - of organising an event that delivers what both exhibitors and visitors are looking for from a consumer event; sales from an exhibitor's perspective, and the opportunity for visitors to see and purchase the latest outdoor clothing, equipment, technology and accessories."
The event organisers also work on the National Wedding Show and the UK Housing Awards.
