|‘The show Awards return with some exciting changes!’ Keith,|
The Slide & OTS Winter show Awards are now open to entries from all brands exhibiting at the show until next Monday 10th January (later entries will be considered at the discretion of the organisers) and reward the hottest new products at the show. The cost is just £25 per entry and can be made online by clicking the link below. It is a great opportunity to attract PR exposure for new and innovative products from the media and retailers.
If you have not booked a stand at the show, there are still a handful of spaces available, which will not only allow you to enter your new products in the Awards but also, Slide & OTS Winter is the only opportunity to showcase your winter 22/23 ranges to key snowsports and outdoor retailers this year.
All products entered will be on display at the show at the Award area, and will be voted by attending SIGB and OIA retailers, journalists and industry opinion leaders during the first day of the show (18th January). The winners will be announced at the end of the second day of the show (19th January).

This year’s awards categories have been extended to include outdoor products and are divided into six categories: Snowsport Hardware (skis, boards of all types, boots, bindings, poles, footwear, toys etc). Outdoor Hardware (footwear, climbing equipment). Software (clothing, apparel). Accessories (gloves, hats, goggles, everything that does not fall into the categories above). Fresh Brand – this category is open only to new brands or first time exhibitors at the show. Eco Award – for brands that show particularly environmentally friendly credentials. The participating product will be judged on its own merit and its broader value chain only. Other brand activities (although highly valued) will not be taken into account. The product will be judged on Protect Our Winters interpretation of its overall environmental impact, taking into account and balancing all environmental subjects.
You can find further information and conditions on the entry form above.
