Originally planned for August and now re-scheduled for early September due to the COVID-19 crisis, tent show organisers, MCS has announced new dates for the 2020 Tent & Awning Trade Show at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
The show will now go ahead from the 6th – 8th September, initially with the support of a number of core camping brands including AMG (Vango), Blue Diamond / Outdoor Revolution, Zempire and Crespo, Bo-Camp & Narbonne with others yet to be announced.
Brands which specialise in the family camping and caravanning market will be working together during the three day show to present their new collections to camping dealers. All the latest tents, caravan awnings, shelters, camping furniture, accessories and BBQ’s will be showcased by the brands that have so far indicated their interest.
Commenting on plans for the show, organiser Alasdair Scobbie from MCS said: “It was uncertain whether a show was possible or not this year due to the pandemic, with shops closed and consumers unable to access the outdoors, the trade has been in a challenging position. However, campsites are due to reopen and outdoor shops are getting back on their feet again. Suppliers need a forum to engage with dealers and their customers again and to present new product ranges and innovations.”
