This year's inaugural event for the outdoors sector will be back next April

Scotland’s Outdoor Pursuits event returns for 2012

Following the debut of the Outdoor Pursuits Scotland exhibition, the show is returning for 2012.

Including new product, activities, talks and presentations, the event will see a number of changes next year including more floor space for exhibition stands, more retail stands and a new ‘zone’ for country sports. The 2012 show will also see a small area dedicated to Scottish produce (food, drink and crafts).

As with this year’s inaugural event, next year will also see the return of a zone dedicated to bikes, watersports, camping and walking, ‘snow, rock and adrenalin’ and also the Xtra zone – covering everything that doesn’t fall into the other categories including everything from fishing to horse riding. Next year the show will run from Saturday April 21st to 22nd.

The show organiser, JP Events and Exhibitions, said: “After a highly successful launch in 2011, we are back in 2012 with a bigger show with more expansive plans in mind. In addition to all the activity going on inside the venue, we expect to have plenty more to see and do in the grounds surrounding the hall too.”
