Outdoor Retailer Expo – North America’s largest tradeshow in the outdoor industry, USA
Outdoor Retailer is the world’s leading business-to-business outdoor sports show where industry brands, retailers, reps, designers, suppliers and leaders gather.
Each year, Outdoor Retailer is a must-attend for those serious about the outdoor and snowsports industry. From writing new orders to finding new accounts, launching new brands to making new connections, Outdoor Retailer is where the new happens. And with its conferences, training sessions, leadership seminars and educational opportunities, the show is a must-attend event.
This is the gathering place of the outdoor industry.
Outdoor Retailer Summer
Summer Market 2019 was the largest outdoor B2B show in the world with over 1,400 brands and nearly 25,000 people in attendance. This show is the epicenter of our outdoor community and if you’re in the summer outdoor space, Summer Market is for you.
Now purposefully located at the launch of the summer outdoor buying season, Summer Market provides a high-level view of products before business is drilled down further at regional shows. It’s also host to the Outdoor Retailer Inspiration Awards, which recognizes the individuals, companies, retailers and nonprofits making an impact in the outdoor industry by inspiring others to get outdoors. Summer Market is where people are inspired, orders are written, new accounts are found, mountains are climbed, friends are made and brands are birthed.
If you’re a brand, exhibiting at the Demo Experience at Summer Market gets you in front of buyers and journalists the day before Summer Market begins, which means retailers, reps and journalists are hungry for what’s new. Exhibiting at the Demo offers a competitive advantage, especially for small to mid-size brands, where buyers and journalists can have a hands-on experience trying products in an outdoor environment.
Outdoor Retailer Winter
Outdoor + Snow Show is the whole mountain experience—located at the peak of the snowsports buying season. Outdoor + Snow Show is the only national gathering of winter outdoor / snowsports brands and buyers in the country. It’s the place where the entire outdoor industry gathers to discover and explore the new Fall / Winter outdoor trends which will shape the consumer experience.
Innovation has always been at the core or the outdoor industry. As a way to encourage and recognize those people pushing the envelope, we created the Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards. Hosted at Outdoor + Snow Show, the Innovation Awards celebrate and set the stage for what’s fresh in trends, innovation and sourcing.
Snow Show is also where SIA / WWSRA host the industry’s largest international On-Snow Demo. It’s the best place to test the latest equipment and accessories spanning from major manufacturers to smaller boutique brands.
Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards
