35 years ago Outdoor Retailer created a home for the outdoor industry. Inspired by the creative spirit of wild places and human power, 93 brands came together to find a home of their own to champion a life outdoors. Together we celebrated successes and built a community, a family. We’ve all come home to re-unite, to celebrate, to do business. The industry never looked back.
Today Outdoor Retailer is the nation’s largest tradeshow in the outdoor industry drawing more than 29,000 attendees from around the world. Summer Market is all about face-to-face—it’s where products are shown, orders are written, new accounts are found, connections are made and brands are launched. This show is about buying, sourcing, strategic meetings, trend presentations, education and networking with the decision makers, influencers, key buyers and athletes that influence the outdoor market.
