Empowering you to Get Outside and Get Active
Held in association with Ordnance Survey, we believe that an active outdoor lifestyle helps you live longer, stay younger and enjoy life more. The National Outdoor Expo is a utopia for outdoor enthusiasts and provides all of the inspiration, kit, tech, nutrition and advice needed to get outside and get active.
The outdoors is for everyone and we want to help you discover the best Britain has to offer and the benefits that outdoor activity can bring. The National Outdoor Expo is packed full of interactive features, inspiring talks and the very latest gear for you to try and buy, all under one roof.
We have 6 key areas: walking, climbing, running, camping, eating outdoors and excursions. 200 exhibitors, 10,000 visitors and 10 interactive features. Come along for a great day out.
