The Festival and Outdoor Events Show (Festout) is returning to Sandown Park, Surrey on 26th & 27th September for its second outing.

Throughout the two days, quality outdoor event organisers will be sourcing their suppliers for the year to follow.

Visitors also attend for the learning and networking opportunities. Reflecting the outdoor events industry itself, Festout is a vibrant, innovative show.

As the official media partner of Festout, Access All Areas is looking forward to being your go-to place for show announcements over the coming months, especially as we already have some big plans of our own lined up for the show.

Beginning with our competition, Access is committed to supporting grass root companies in their first ventures into market and, for this year’s Festout, we’re offering two companies the opportunity to win a stand at the show.

This competition will provide a valuable presence at the show for two of the next generation of excellent event suppliers.

As well as the stand itself, the winner gains from pre-show marketing, and also editorial opportunities from us at Access.

To qualify, companies must be under two years old and have a sales turnover of less than £500,000, as well as being a first time exhibitor.

The two winners each receive a 3m x 2m Shell Scheme Stand at Festout 2018, with a basic furniture package.

Highly Commended entries will also receive an enviable discount on their stand.

A Festout stand provides access to organisers whom are responsible for thousands of outdoor events and festivals across the UK every year; creating business opportunities that will support the continued growth of the exhibiting suppliers.

To enter, send your answers to these questions to Kate Needham (

  • Your company name, website & contact details
  • The services / products you provide
  • What Festout will help you achieve
  • What makes you unique in the market – and how you’ll bring this to Festout

Duncan Siegle, event director of Festout said:

“Exhibitions provide companies of all shapes and sizes a great platform for promotion, meeting new contacts and generating sales. As an organiser and publisher in this arena we want to help companies take advantage of these shows and demonstrate the power of exhibitions and that you don’t need to be a big name for them to work for you.”

The shortlist will be announced at the start of July, and Access All Areas will be showcasing them all in the subsequent print issue.

A panel of neutral industry judges will select their two winners.

Deadline: 30 June 6pm.
