This year’s biggest consumer show will be made extra special as it celebrates 30 years of Countryfile - the nation’s favourite rural television show with over 1,000 episodes broadcasted; reporting on farming, rural issues and the beauty and diversity of the British countryside.  To mark the anniversary, BBC Countryfile Live will be returning to the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace, where consumers flock in phenomenal numbers to experience four days of live arena shows, hands on activities, animal displays, debates, food, drink and shopping.

“We are excited to attend our very first consumer show and be apart of this year’s celebration.  Consumers will be able to take advantage of promotional offers and an exciting competition that we will be hosting exclusively at Countryfile Live.  We will be offering a range of products that appeal to all ages and interests, from water-resistant thermal mules to smokeless barbecues and collapsible cool boxes, alongside new innovations that are not only attractive to consumers, but also beneficial to the environment. We can’t wait to see what this year’s show has to offer”, says Richard Taylor at Summit International.

With conservation on everyone’s mind, Summit’s MyBento Pure glass bottles will be available at stand A52 to purchase. MyBento Pure glass bottles do not contain the toxic chemicals found in everyday plastics and can therefore be refilled with any drink, hot or cold, to stay hydrated throughout the day. For every MyBento Pure bottle sold in the UK, Summit will donate 50p (or £1 for the premium bottle) to the Marine Conservation Society in support of the #StopThePlasticTide appeal. 

Summit will also be showcasing Hydra-Light, the revolutionary water activated lighting series, due to launch in 2019. Hydra-Light does not require electricity or rely on batteries to function; instead uses water activated technology - powered by the HydraCell - to provide long-lasting illumination and power with minimal impact on the environment.  The HydraCell energy cell that does not contain toxic chemicals and is comprised of biodegradable materials that make it safe for disposal. It has been developed as an alternative to batteries to help reduce the millions of disposed batteries ending up in landfill each year.  The range of eco-friendly lanterns, flashlights and power banks provide instant light and power, anytime, anywhere - making it ideal for emergencies, camping, boating and off-grid adventures.

Summit’s ultra-lightweight Pack Away chair is a popular travel accessory from their core camping range.  It weighs just 1kg - the same as a bag of sugar - which makes it suitable for all types of outdoor events. Featuring quick and easy assembly with pre-attached connectors that simply slot together, the seat can then be attached to the frame, ready to use in seconds.  This strong, durable chair can hold up to an impressive 110kg in weight, providing a comfortable, portable seat for armchair explorers. Not only has it been designed to provide extra support and comfort, it is also water-resistant, providing extra protection and durability against unexpected showers and muddy outdoor events.

Finally, Summit will be showcasing quality dinnerware sets and garden furniture from their dedicated al fresco dining brand, B&Co.  Inspired from contemporary materials and classic artisan tradition, the B&Co range aims to create a modern, bistro themed dining atmosphere at home. 

Introducing the next innovation in charcoal cooking – the B&Co Al Fresco Smokeless BBQ Grill – this portable grill is sure to impress party guests.  Ready to cook for up to 6 people in under 5 minutes, the B&Co Al Fresco Smokeless BBQ Grill offers all the taste and flavour of outdoor charcoal cooking, but none of the waiting time traditional barbecues require. The smokeless barbecue uses 85% less charcoal and uses an eco-friendly, non toxic lighting gel that provides a long, clean burn in all types of weather conditions. Compact and portable, the B&CO grill is safe to place on table tops as the outer casing stays cool to the touch. It features a battery operated airflow system which enables you to change the heat intensity for great tasting food, without the burnt bits!  

The desirable smokeless grill is up for grabs in Summit’s prize bundle competition, along with other quality goods from the B&Co brand, including wine bottle and glass holders, zero gravity chair and cooking accessories.  This is one exciting event you would not want to miss!
