Not only can outdoor enthusiasts vote for their favourite finalists online (via the OIA and UKClimbing websites), but they will also be able to vote in person and see the products at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show in February (18th – 23rd), where the finalist products from all ten categories will be on display to almost 100,000 visitors at the NEC in Birmingham. To find out more information please visit our awards partner UKClimbing on their stand at KMF.
