The first ever National Show Show, hosted over two spectacular days at the Birmingham NEC, bought together almost 10,000 visitors and 150 exhibitors to celebrate the start of the winter season and to get the snowsports-industry back to doing what it does best; connecting face-to-face with passionate skiers and snowboarders and to gear up for the mountains together.
The show was opened in style by Billy Morgan, Stephen Morgan, Chemmy Alcott, Jamie Nichols and Scott Penman:
As one of the two official charity partners alongside our friends at Protect Our Winters, the show wasn’t just an opportunity to raise awareness about Snow-Camp’s work with new & existing supporters, or to give a group of Snow-Camp young people to gain invaluable volunteering experience at the show, but also a chance for Snow-Camp to reconnect with our partners from every corner of the snowsports industry; from governing bodies, to our brand partners, media partners, ski academies, UK slopes and everyone in-between.
In fact, now in our 18th year as charity, we took the opportunity to thank many of our Snow-Camp Legends to thank them for their support over the past 18 years. Take a look!
Alongside the support from the industry, the team behind the National Snow Show, Raccoon Events, committed to a generous £1,000 donation to support Snow-Camp’s work which will directly support 10 new inner-city young people to join the Snow-Camp programmes this year.
‘Stephen and the Raccoon Events team smashed the inaugural National Snow Show. Launching a new show during covid-19 was a bold challenge to take on, especially given the challenges for the snowsports industry as a whole. But it was a mind-blowing success, and for Snow-Camp, the perfect event to ignite our 2021/22 winter season. The show’s £1,000 donation will directly fund 10 underprivileged young people to access snowsports for the first time on our programmes, and we can’t wait to celebrate this impact at the show in 2022.’
‘I love working with Snow-Camp. the team are amazingly committed to making snowsports accessible to everyone and that is something that the show is 100% behind. It’s great to see how snowsports can be used as a force for good and have positive effects on the lives of youngsters, no matter where you are from! Snow-Camp is awesome, the kids they bring through are awesome and we feel awesome being able to help where we can!’
