Raccoon Events is a new exciting and dynamic UK events business run by a group of exhibition and digital marketing experts. Over the last 13 years we’ve worked for most of the major event organisers and we’ve run hundreds of exhibitions and conferences in key locations all over the world.

We set up Raccoon because we wanted to create exhibitions that offer something new and different in underserved markets that we understand and that we love. We believe that great events are about community, fun, innovation and excitement and we hope that we offer you that with The National Outdoor Expo.

Please contact us and let us know what you think!

I’ve completed several marathons, a few ultra-marathons and other challenges such as the 3 peaks. I am passionate about sustainability and being active.

I'm Addie, Commercial Director at Raccoon Events. I spent 7 years working for The NEC and so it's been an exciting challenge over the last 3 years to work as an organiser launching a successful portfolio of consumer events. It's been great shaping The National Outdoor Expo with new exhibitors and sponsors from the running community.
