Raccoon Events is an exciting and dynamic UK events business run by a group of exhibition and digital marketing experts. The team at Raccoon Events is small, but has a wealth of event experience – collectively over 80 years of organising 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!
