We’re delighted to be sponsoring this year’s National Outdoor Expo at the NEC in Birmingham from 18-19 March. This fantastic event brings inspirational speakers and leading brands in outdoor gear together under one roof in one of the biggest community meet-ups of the year. 

What To Expect From The National Outdoor Expo

A chance to chat and discover all things outdoors with the industry’s leading experts, including some familiar faces.

From climbing experts to water sports enthusiasts, conservation charities, and even the best in natural food and drink, the list of exhibitors cover anything and everything to do with getting outside. Each exhibitor will have their own stand where you can chat and ask questions with them, and see the latest gear that you need to get yourself equipped for your next adventure. 

Alongside the exhibitors there will be talks throughout the day from inspirational speakers and some famous faces, including Ben Fogle, Helen Skelton, Hamza Yassin and Ray Mears.
