The dates for Britain's 2002 annual trade show for the outdoor industry will be decided in November, and the group is asking for input about the dates being considered. Harrogate remains the favored venue, the association says. It is now holding Aug. 4-5 and Sept. 22-24 there. Since some see those August dates as too early, the Outdoor Industries Association is looking at alternatives, such as Sept. 1-3 in Manchester or in Birmingham. It will consider all four at its meeting Nov. 7. All OIA members and other may make comments to the group. Comments should be mailed (OIA, Morritt House, 58 Station Approach South Ruislip, RUISLIP, HA4 6SA, UK), faxed (020 8842 1121), or emailed (roger@go-outdoors.org.uk)to reach the offices before Nov. 7.
