Outdoor Retailer Show Dates - New Three Day Format for 2019


Outdoor Retailer Show Dates - New Three Day Format for 2019

Outdoor Retailer announces new three day format for 2019 shows moving forward.  After establishing Denver as it's new home for 2018 with three seperate events happening throughout the year, brands and retailers have spoken up and the show will now move to a three day format instead of four. 

We're happy to hear they are moving to three days instead of four and think it will really provide a true benefit to attending the show as an exhibitor or retailer.  With a lot of the brands exhibiting at all three shows throughout the year, this move by Outdoor Retailer should help brands lower their exhibit cost per show and with fewer days available, hopefully encourage retailers and brands to get down to brass tax and make those orders for 2019!

 Read the press release below to see the new 2019 dates for each show, we hope to see you there!

Outdoor Retailer

When the year comes to a close, it’s always an opportunity to reflect on the past 12 months and look to what’s ahead.

This year was our first in Denver. Our industry embraced the move, and Colorado and the City of Denver welcomed us with open arms. We are grateful for everyone’s help with making the first year in our new home a success.

With your support, we were able to stage three Outdoor Retailer shows for the first time. We kicked off 2018 with a bang, combining Winter Market and Snow Show, and launched the new show cycle in November, making the start of the buying season the focus.

A Growth Year
We’ve learned a lot throughout the year. That comes with change, spurred by listening to your feedback.

Our goal is to continue to provide the best platform to get business done and the best place for the outdoor community to connect and learn. And, based on our conversations and your input, we’ve heard that three full days at a show is sufficient.

Three-Day Shows in 2019
In 2019, the three Outdoor Retailer shows will shift to a three-day format. Snow Show already runs three days, and both Summer Market and Winter Market will move to three, mid-week days.

Outdoor Retailer 2019 show dates:

  • Snow Show: January 30-February 1
  • Summer Market: June 18-20; Demo Experience: June 17
  • Winter Market: November 5-7

Because they are mid-week shows, retailers can come in, run through appointments and be back in stores for the weekend. And for all, the shows will be more cost-effective and efficient. The days will be packed!

Overall, we want to deliver the best show experience for you. We want your shows to be easy, productive, and rewarding.

We wish everyone a very wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year. We are excited to see you all again in Denver in 2019!
