NEC Outdoor Show 2010 - Post Show

Still barely a dribble of feedback from show attendees this year, when compared to previous events.

Amongst what little there is check out Andy Howell and Podcast Bob. Both are well acquainted with this exhibition during recent times so their take on the show is worth listening to.

Andy over on Walk this Way has a short breakdown of his noteworthy items. And that's not really a lot

Meanwhile Bob's free podcast available on The Outdoors Station gives a punter's feel as to the size and general content in 2010 (1 hall only this year!)

More to follow in further podcasts - meanwhile you can find Part 1 here to listen on-line , or download for later consumption by clicking SaveAs on the link for the MP3.

I'm particularly intrigued by his promise to explore the organisational & commercial aspects behind the scenes with the organising body.

With the confirmation that the 2011 show will be based at the Excel Centre in London, potentially losing some of its identity in amongst a larger parent event, there's an obvious question.

Does the Outdoor Show really have a viable future in representing the UK Outdoor industry to the UK public?

Or has it lost its way for good?


Dissapointed, not enough on climbing, not enough kit and too many destination stands. On the plus side, we won best online retailer from Walk magazine which we were seriously chuffed with!
glad someone enjoyed their day(s) out
