Not only can outdoor enthusiasts vote for their favourite finalists online, but they will also be able to vote in person and see the products at The Outdoor Adventure & Camping Show in February (16th - 19th) 2017, where the finalist products from all ten categories will be on display to over 50,000 consumers within a dedicated area at the venue, ExCel, London.
