Innovating The Future From Our Past
This year we proudly celebrate our 50th Anniversary, making this a very special milestone for all of the team at Vango and, as you can imagine we are all REALLY, REALLY EXCITED!!!
Vango was established in the West of Scotland, at the gateway to the spectacular Scottish Highlands back in the swinging 60s. From the beginning, our base has played a huge part in the development of Vango. It has encouraged us to push ourselves, and our kit, against the extreme weather conditions (we all know that summer is the greatest day in Scotland!). In keeping with our legacy and love of the great outdoors, we continue to innovate outdoor gear that enables and supports everyone, from occasional campers right through to world renowned explorers.
Like all good 50 year olds should, we’ve got a few things planned to celebrate our half-century. Follow our blog and social feeds to keep up to date with what we are doing.
50th Anniversary Logo
To mark our landmark year, we have introduced our 50th birthday logo. The anniversary emblem depicts the well-known Vango orange triangle which, based on our distinguished flagship tent the Vango Force 10 Classic (the one that started it all) with the addition of a 50 that signifies our momentous year in the outdoor industry. The limited edition logo will be included on all tents in our 2016 family tent, technical tent and awning range.
Let’s get the party started!
Come and celebrate our 50th year with us at events across the country; NEC Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show, Scouts Gilwell Reunion, Trans Savoie and Carfest to name but a few. At each show we will be showcasing our anniversary range, exciting giveaways and competitions. Look forward to seeing you there!
Competitions & Freebies
We are going to giveaway lots of great camping kit. From grand Airbeam® tents to top of the range trekking tents, essential cook kits and rucksacks, to name a few.
Look out for our 50 days of Summer competition which will celebrate our history and highlight everything we love about camping.
We want to see where you are camping this year! Join in with our #viewfrommytent campaign.
Finally, look out for our celebratory Vango tiny tent which is, a commemorative model tent based on our Force 10 classic design. This includes the Vango timeline but can be pitched and used as a photo frame so that your favourite camping photo can take pride of place on your work desk or mantelpiece! These can be found in selected retailers in 2016 from spring.
We are proud of what we have done. We have come from a small factory in Scotland, to be one of the biggest and most successful camping and outdoor gear innovators in the world. And it is thanks to you, our fellow campers and outdoor enthusiasts, who inspire us to design kit and enjoy the wonders of the great outdoors.
Our goal is still the same as it was back in 1966, we are continually striving to create the best camping equipment possible. We are looking forward to the next 50 years; Innovating the future from our past...
