If you own a Salt Lake City home, you know life here is all about the great outdoors! Utah’s greatest claims to fame are its stunning natural beauty and four distinct seasons in which to enjoy it. Hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, skiing, boating and snowmobiling are just a few of the activities locals and visitors enjoy here. That’s why Salt Lake is the perfect place for the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market.
The show began today and will be open through Saturday (Aug. 3) at the Salt Palace Convention Center at 100 South and West Temple. Utahns are lucky this open air market decided to call Salt Lake home. Be one of the first to experience the latest and greatest in outdoor equipment. Manufacturers are actually using the local mountains to test new outdoor equipment and to “get a first-hand feel for gear ranging from paddlesports to trail running before making buying decisions later this week at the Salt Palace,” according to a statement published on the event’s official website.
Thanks to manufacturers who appreciate hands-on testing, Utah gets in-depth exposure to serious businessmen and women from throughout the country. Utah’s water bodies provide opportunities to test boats and water equipment. The mountains are perfect for hiking and camping and the time is right for manufacturers to start taking orders. This is the best place under the sun to test a wide variety of outdoor equipment.
Outdoor Retailer Summer Market says it’s committed to delivering the “widest and most comprehensive outdoor buyer demographic that has open-to-buy and a passion for the outdoors.” This is the largest outdoor sports show of its kind, and it caters to a specialty audience.
Outdoor Retailer was recently named among Trade Show News Network’s 25 fastest-growing tradeshows by attendance. Outdoor Retailer connects about 46,000 attendees on a semi-annual basis for its Summer and Winter Market shows, and thousands more through its year-round online resources and platforms.
Factor in the thousands of dollars this event brings to our state and you’ll realize this is a great annual boon for the area.
