The Outdoor Retailer Trade Show is the centerpiece of the outdoor industry, where thousands of brands from all over the world convene to display innovation, new products, networking opportunities, and discuss the issues that face the environment and the industry itself. It’s a celebration of an industry that finds itself challenged like never before in recent times.
After 27-years based in Salt Lake City, Outdoor Retailer announced it’s move to Denver last Summer, bringing to the city the show, plus the vibrant events that showcase Colorado’s dedication to it’s public spaces, and celebrates it’s wild and iconic landscapes.
For the city of Denver, the show, whose first event runs from January 25-28 is projected to host over 85,000 visitors and bring over $110 million to the city with a winter and summer show plus a third event in November.
Hailed as a coup for the State of Colorado, the show promotes and supports a healthy outdoor economy, investment in public lands, and puts Colorado on the map as the center of the outdoor world.
The trade show acts as the face of local brands and industries, such as Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. The show helps demonstrate a strong Colorado workforce and dedication to small businesses. At the trade show, you can expect to find the biggest names in the outdoor industry sporting their own trade show banner and displays featuring new and exciting products. Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, as a representative of the outdoor force of the state invites our guests to experience the mountains, rivers, national parks and forests, and wild open spaces of our state.
Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, a partner with Visit Denver, the Denver Conventions and Visitors Bureau, and Outdoor Industry Association member, will offer special events during the duration of the show to promote leadership, adventure, and Colorado’s outdoor industry.
From the team at Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, we give a warm welcome to our industry colleagues and hope you enjoy our city, our state, and our wildernesses.
