Shows combine to create new winter trade platform


The owners and organisers of Slide and OTS have joined forces to create a combined winter show for the snowsport industry and outdoor brands to showcase and present their winter ranges.

Slide & OTS Winter is scheduled to go ahead 18-20th January 2022 at the Telford International Centre and will offer retail buyers the opportunity to view the latest equipment and product innovations from all brands involved in the wintersport and outdoor markets.

The collaboration between SIGB, OTS and the Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) is in response to the industry’s clamour for one UK winter trade show.

Commenting on the concept of the new combined winter show, Sonia Prior, Joint President of the Snowsport industries of Great Britain (SIGB), owner of Slide said: “Bringing together both ‘Snowsport’ and ‘Outdoor’ and providing the opportunity for a combined UK winter focused show makes perfect sense, making it both cost effective and time efficient for everyone.”

“On behalf of the founders of OTS and CEO of the Outdoor Industries Association, Andrew Denton said, “Many outdoor brands have both Spring and Autumn ranges and the facility to present these ranges independently in the UK in an outdoor winter environment will be very appealing. This partnership between the shows provides a great opportunity to align both market sectors together and offers a great service to the industry.”

Slide organiser, Rare Management retains responsibility for the overall sales and organisation, whilst MCS PR & Events, organiser of OTS has been appointed to manage the PR, communications and sales support of the joint show.

Exhibitor space booking enquiries are invited by contacting Rare Management from June onwards when the draft floorplan and further details will be available.
