Slide 2016 Dates Announced

TheSIGB today announced that Slide will return to the Telford International Centre, with dates of 19-21 January 2016.

In January 2015, Slide took place prior to ispo for the first time in a number of years. As a result, the show grew in size and number of exhibitors and proved successful, fitting in better with supplier order deadlines and playing a greater role to the buying process. The SIGB Committee therefore decided to position Slide in advance of ispo once again, in 2016.

Sam Noble, SIGB President commented, “There are undoubtedly challenges for both suppliers and retail buyers in preparing for a show pre ispo, but the early date shows that the SIGB is committed to creating an event for the UK snowsport industry that is effective, relevant and valued by the entire industry”.

The Telford International Centre itself is an excellent venue for Slide; with a welcoming atmosphere providing a positive vibe to the show. The ease of getting to Telford by road or train, as well as the free parking for visitors, makes the venue a pleasure to visit. With enormous improvements made to the infrastructure immediately surrounding the Centre, Telford is gaining in popularity as an exhibition destination.

Exhibitor booking forms will be available from June.

SIGB Ski Test

The SIGB Ski Test will return to Kuhtai in Austria from 22-26 February 2016, following four highly successful previous tests in the same venue. The Ski Test is open to all retailers and media and offers a fantastic opportunity to test the following season’s skis and to meet friends, colleagues and competitors on the slopes.

In 2015, 175 individual testers from 28 retail and 7 media organisations recorded over 3700 test results

on 23 different ski brands and on 872 pairs of skis
