As we continue to welcome the gradual return to some sort of normality, events have been resuming – with few we’re looking forward to as much as the National Outdoor Expo!

Taking place this weekend (19 and 20 March) at the NEC in Birmingham, it will feature a fantastic lineup of speakers who have achieved a lot in – and for – the industry as well as some of the best brands and companies in the business.

We are sending a stellar team to represent the Centre, meet and greet attendees as well as answer any questions about our courses, outdoor pursuits and everything in between. We’re also planning a competition giveaway, so if you’re planning to attend, be sure to stop by and say hello to be in with a chance of winning one of our amazing Adventure Days. We have a stand located at D35 opposite the Montane indoor climbing wall. Rumour has it our famous flapjacks may also make an appearance…

The event promises to inspire anyone and everyone that has an interest in the outdoors, whether beginner or professional. The pandemic has taken its toll on the nation’s mental and physical health but one glimmer of hope we’re seeing, is a renewed love and appreciation of the great outdoors. According to research we commissioned at the height of the pandemic, almost a third (32%) of Brits tried an outdoor activity for the first time since the initial national lockdown in March 2020. With this in mind, we’re hoping to see a fantastic turnout and meet lots of new faces.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, we’re also giving away FREE tickets. To claim them, all you have to do is head to the official website, add tickets and enter the code PLASYBRENIN at checkout.

Hope to see you there!
