Exhibitor Testimonials (OTS 2016):

Steve Walton, UK Sales Manager, Allcord: “We were impressed with the quality of retailers that were in attendance throughout the show.  We will definitely re-attend next year. Excellent organisation. Thank you”

 

Michelle Dickinson, Managing Director, Burton McCall: “Yet again OTS was a highly successful event for Burton McCall, our stand was consistently busy with a high calibre of visitors over the two days.  The show allowed us to network with new and existing customers showcasing our growing portfolio in an ideal setting.  As always the organisation prior to and during the show made it all the more enjoyable.”

 

Lee Farthing, Marketing Manager, Miriad Products:On behalf of us all at Miriad Products our first experience of OTS, showing Brunner Products for the first time has far exceeded our expectations. Having the show over two days seemed to work well as it condensed the visitors. We recorded approximately 40 visitors to our stand on both days many of whom we haven’t dealt with before. Certainly the experience of set up and break down was much easier and more friendly than at other exhibitions. A thoroughly enjoyable few days with you.”

 

John Loughlin, Business Development Manager, Celestron: “The “Outdoor” market is a new product area for Celestron, it was our first year attending OTS. The show was perfect for meeting new retailers, it was also a great networking opportunity, an event to discuss and share information on the “Outdoor” market with other suppliers and people within the trade.”

 

Vicki Parlour, E-Commerce & Marketing Manager, Powertraveller: “Exhibiting at OTS is absolutely vital for Powertraveller as it allows us to re-connect with our UK distributors and update them on company news and products on a more personal level. It’s also great to catch up with the other brands at the show and develop co-brand opportunities within the outdoor industry.”

 

Rob Williams, Director, Prepared 4: “We have been attending the OTS each year for the last 5+ years, with an ever growing presence.  It is a great mix of opportunities, from catching up with existing customers and showing new products, to meeting with the potential new customer who had his eye caught by the products on the stand.”

 

Iain Harris, Cadac:Cadac had a great show, 2016 has been another strong year for the brand and there was much interest in the new products, technical improvements and brand marketing. Much discussion occurred regarding post Brexit pricing for 2017 but the planned price adjustments were generally accepted considering the additional marketing to be invested in “pulling the brand” through retail. Brand extension into event shelters, melamine, flasks and cooler bags were very well received and OTS was just the right platform to launch such products. Thank you to the MCS team for all of your efforts in making the show a success.”

 

Sam Fernando, Keela:OTS 2016 really took us all by surprise – was busy and full of life. Well done the team at OTS! For those not there you missed out

 

Sean O’Reilly, UK Market Development Manager, Valneva UK (Moskito Guard): “Being a first time exhibitor at the Outdoor Trade Show and a vaccine company we were unsure as to what to expect from the OTS.  We market and distribute a new insect repellent ‘Moskito Guard®’ and we were delighted to see the response that we received.  We were really pleased that those attending the stand had a real appreciation for the evidence base behind Moskito Guard® and that any claims regarding its effectiveness were referenced to the same level as a pharmaceutical product.  We have gained a wealth of contacts in the outdoor trade and a number of interested retailers that would like to stock our products.  I would highly recommend the show to companies looking to penetrate the outdoor trade, especially if they have something new and innovative, like Moskito Guard® to exhibit.”

 

Tomas Torstensson, HEJ International:The OTS show was a perfect way to launch the new brand in our portfolio, MAIER SPORT.  Several retailers recognised the strong offer from MAIER SPORT that will now be in stores all over the country for Spring 2017. We also had very good meetings with new and existing customers on our other brands WIGWAM,KOZIKIDZ & KAMIK. We are very much looking forward to next year’s show.”
