I am delighted to be returning to the NEC, Birmingham, along with our partners Ordnance Survey, to welcome you to the second edition of National Outdoor Expo this 18-19 March.

There’s something for everyone at the National Outdoor Expo whether your passion is walking, hiking, climbing, trail running, paddleboarding, kayaking, camping, open water swimming, or outdoor cooking, it’s all here. The weekend is the perfect opportunity to ignite passions for a range of outdoor activities and learn new skills. Be inspired and motivated by some of the world’s greatest outdoor enthusiasts, take part in a range of performance workshops and get your adrenaline going on one of the many interactive features which offer fun for all the family.

We have hundreds of brands across the breadth of outdoor interests for you to explore and take away with you. It’s with the support of our exhibitors that we are able to bring to you this fantastic event so I urge you to visit as many of them as you can to see what’s new and innovative and how you can be supported in your enthusiasm for everything outdoors.

Have you seen our incredible speaker line-up?  Be sure to check the agenda and don’t miss the opportunity to hear from and meet some of the most awe-inspiring legends of the Outdoors such as Ben Fogle, Helen Skelton, Hamza Yassin, Julia Bradbury and Alastair Humphreys .

Whether you’re a family of keen adventure seekers or an accomplished explorer everyone is welcome. Thank you for your support and for taking the time to come and visit the National Outdoor Expo.

All the best,

Esther Beal
