SOLEX 2020

SOLEX - The Summer Outdoor Living Exhibition

The Latest Trends and Innovations in Outdoor Living

Place - Hall 5 | Venue - NEC | Dates - 7-9 July 2020

Welcome to SOLEX 2020 online

In the interests of safety and following government guidelines, SOLEX, the Summer Outdoor Living Exhibition 2020, 7-9 July, NEC, Birmingham had to be postponed until 2021.

SOLEX is the biggest three-day event in the Outdoor Living Trade calendar. An essential event to see what's new, what's on trend and the opportunity to meet and greet familiar faces from the industry and of course, catch up on the trade gossip.

Despite the inconvenience of Covid-19 the trade has been as busy as ever, with the enforced lockdown people have experienced more leisure time, this has meant that when the garden centres and stores re opened there has been a very healthy run on sales which we can expect to continue well into the autumn.

As the leading organisation in the outdoor leisure industry representing the very best brands within the UK, we recognise buyers still need to buy for this year and more importantly for next year. So, as you are unable to visit SOLEX, we are very pleased to be able to bring a version of SOLEX to you - online.

Our objective being to ensure you can be the first to see the exhibitors' new spring / summer collections for 2021.

Drop in on the Floor Plan to visit all SOLEX exhibitors, explore their websites to see a myriad of exciting and inspiring outdoor leisure products.

We very much look forward to seeing you all again at SOLEX 2021 but in the meantime we wish you well and a successful summer.

SOLEX 2019 Visitor Snapshot

Timing is right - calendar year. In high season and having just sold last years purchases since March in right frame mind to purchase again for next year.
A very focussed event with all the suppliers in one place.
The ease of finding the suppliers I needed to speak too.
The most important suppliers to the UK market could be found at this show.
Organised so efficiently and the exhibitors include a good selection of product.
The wide range of choice, the ability to talk direct to suppliers and manufacturers.
Everything was just right from parking, to staff at the door meeting and greeting and food and snacks at the show... all good!
Easy to get to, NEC staff very helpful and pleasant.
Easy to compare lots of competitors under one roof. Well organized, and less of a free-for-all than other trade shows.
