The UK's No.1 show for outdoor pursuits, The Outdoors Show, returns to ExCeL, London from 17 – 20 January 2013. Promising a great family day out, the show provides a fantastic opportunity to buy all the latest clothing and equipment at great prices, as well as offering FREE have-a-go attractions, special guest speakers and more.
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Everest in 1953, The Outdoors Show will be hosting an exhibition, 60 Years on Everest. In conjunction with the Mountain Heritage Trust and the Royal Geographical Society, it will feature photographs, clothing and memorabilia documenting the key dates in the history of Everest, from 1953 through to the modern day.
The focus on Everest doesn’t end there. The Adventure Stage will be headlined by Everest legend Kenton Cool, one of the world’s leading alpine climbers with ten successful Everest ascents to his name, more than any other European climber. He’ll be joined by a host of other mountaineers and adventurers, all with fantastic stories to tell. All talks will be free of charge to visitors upon entry to the show.
The Climbing Village will offer a challenge for experienced climbers, and a great opportunity for people wanting to try climbing for the first time. There'll be walls to suit all abilities and instructors on hand to help and offer advice.
The Careers Zone offers all the information needed to turn a passion for the outdoors into a career. The zone will feature a stage packed with speakers from all aspects of the outdoors industry, as well as an information area where visitors can talk with a wide range of professionals on a one to one level.
New for 2013 is the Outdoor Photography Photobox. Featuring talks from top photographers including wildlife photographer Andy Rouse, BBC Human Planet photographer Timothy Allen, Planet Earth photographer Sue Flood, Julian Love and others. There will also be numerous competition galleries displayed at the show featuring a fantastic range of photography.
