This week I went to the Outdoor Trade Show at the Stoneleigh Park Exhibition Centre, Warwickshire, now in its 9th year.
I was really excited to see the wide variety of brands showing clothing, footwear and accessory products in the exhibition halls as well as the outdoor displays of tents and awnings. It had been described as “an unmissable event that brings the trade together at one venue, offering a cost effective platform to conduct some serious business all under one roof”, so I was hoping to bag some great bargains to sell on our “Shop” pages.
However, I was disappointed that there was very little that excited me. It was mostly the kind of camping items that I have seen already in the local shops and online. I had hoped for something different to sell through Retro Tourer. I will know when I find it…
I was impressed by GSI Outdoors. They have gorgeous enamel dinner sets that I think go perfectly with our Retro Tourers so hope to do business with them very soon.

I guess that it is all part of the learning curve of having a new business and hopefully the next trade fair that I go to will be more inspiring!
