Several outdoor brands including Montane, Salomon, Salkan, Salewa, Yurts for Life, Cactus Drinkwell, Latitude Adventures, The Outdoor Guide and Savage Adventures have joined the line-up at The National Outdoor Expo in March 2021 at the NEC Birmingham. These newly announced names join other big brands including Adidas Terrex, Hoka One One and the show’s retail partner Ellis Brigham.

The organizers, Raccoon Events, have also confirmed that the show will  feature a climbing wall sponsored by Montane, a sky-high rope walk, zip line, outdoor skills theater, VIP Lounge, outdoor cooking demonstrations from Kieran Creevey as well as inspiring talks and the very latest gear to try and buy, all under one roof.

So far, the show is scheduled to take place as planned March 27-28, 2021. In view of the fact that some major March trade show have already been canceled and moved to the virtual space - most recently the world’s largest travel trade show ITB in Berlin (March 10-13) - it remains to be seen whether the National Outdoor Expo can take place as planned.
