Birmingham will play host to the Outdoors Show yet again at the end of this month. The show, which runs from March 26 to 28, 2010, will be held at the NEC across 2 halls. It is the largest UK show dedicated to the outdoors and the 2010 event looks set to be another success.

There will be about 250 exhibitors including most of the large outdoor brands who will be displaying their latest outdoor collections and new technologies.

The main attraction, however, will no doubt be the “have a go” activities which provide visitors with the opportunity to try out new activities in the presence of an expert. These activities include wall climbing, a computrainer cycle simulator, coolboard, ice climbing, and slacklining, among others.

The Outdoors 2010 show will also feature a tent city, a fashion show, as well as a celebrity speaker session with a line-up which includes Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Kate Humble, James Cracknell, Ben Fogle, Simon King and Doug Scott.

The show features caravans, motorhomes, and holiday Homes of a wide variety. There is also plenty of accessories including some new to the market. It’s a great chance to also see some of the 2010 range of products that will be coming out at the start of next year.

The show is a great chance to just browse the odd product but there should also be some great offers and discounts only available at the show. The list of stands goes into the hundreds but there are also events throughout the day including a buying clinic, towing experience and many more.

If you fancy going there are even on site pitches to park up and hook up for the night. Tickets can be bought online or on the day for around £14.95, there is also a 6 day pass if you want to take your time or try and negotiate a price on a new caravan over a few days.

Head over to the official site for more details.
