The winners of this year's UK Outdoor Industry Awards were announced at the OIA Conference Gala Dinner on 16th March, which were selected from 31 finalist products by members of the public.
The finalist products were displayed within a dedicated area at The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show in February, which allowed consumers to vote for their favourites in person, as well as online.
The Gala Dinner was the final stage of the awards process, where over 100 entries in ten categories were previously shortlisted by a panel of expert judges (including specialist outdoor retailers and journalists) at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS 2015), the UK's largest outdoor trade exhibition, in September.
