Outdoor Retailer: unity, water bottles

Outdoor Retailer: unity, water bottles

Visitor numbers for the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market were down this week.

And this is largely because of the show’s 2018 move to Denver from Salt Lake City, reports Sportslink’s international correspondent Hank Aldrich.

International visitors again made up a major component of the total, and the outdoor demo days proved popular.

Main topic of conversation in aisles and booths was the move to the Colorado city, although many reported that it did not matter where the show was being held and that although the Denver venue is reported to be smaller than Salt Lake City, they will still attend the Summer and Winter markets.

Common talk was the importance of uniting the industry, also an important topic at the recent OutDoor trade show in Friedrichshafen in Germany.

The other major theme was the protest against use of public land, Hank Aldrich reported.Pictured are protesters leaving the site

On show was an abundance of water bottles, coolers, and inflatable furniture. Everyone seems to be getting into these categories!
