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.
