This year’s event will be bringing a vast array of features, special guests and the latest gear from leading outdoor brands to appeal to explorers of all ages.
Whether passionate about hiking, camping, watersports, photography, adventure travel or extreme challenges, the show will help visitors to get inspired, meet with experts and get stuck in with the action.
Ideal for families, the Discovery Zone allows everyone to have a go at activities such as climbing, slack lining and caving. Back by popular demand, the SuperBloc climbing wall is a must-see attraction. An expert team will be on-site to offer free masterclasses on lead climbing and bouldering across all four days of the event.
Adventure seekers should be sure to visit the Wild Britain Zone, where they can learn bushcraft and survival skills with ‘A’ Squadron experts including ex-SAS recruit Bob Podesta. They can also hear from some of the world’s most intrepid explorers at the Adventure Theatre, who will share their tips and thrilling experiences. Past speakers include Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Levison Wood, Steve Backshall and Kenton Cool. The full line-up of speakers will be announced on the website in the coming weeks.
Outdoor enthusiasts will also get the opportunity to check out innovations from brands such as Salomon and Suunto as part of the Outdoor Industry Awards showcase. Those in need of new apparel will not be disappointed as Blacks will be retailing the latest products from top brands including The North Face, Berghaus and Jack Wolfskin. As part of the Camping Village, PJ Outdoors will be retailing family and adventure tents from Vango, Outwell, Zempire, Kampa and Quest. This is all in addition to the number of tourism boards and travel companies on-site to offer practical advice, travel offers and destination ideas for every corner of the globe.
A ticket to the Outdoor Adventure & Camping Show will also gain visitors entry into three other events that are running simultaneously; The London Bike Show, the Triathlon Show: London and Oceans: Featuring The London International Dive Show (Saturday & Sunday only).
