Now in its seventh year, the 2012 show will have extended opening times on Sunday and Monday, staying open until 7pm. The event takes place on 9-12 September at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
“We are very excited at being able to offer a platform that ticks all the boxes for retailers and manufacturers,” said OTS organiser Marta Williams. “OTS has experienced a rapid growth in its six year history and the changes to the show for 2012 reflect our primary objective of responding to the needs of the industry and to provide a cost-effective show for suppliers and a worthwhile trip for retailers.”
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
