Outdoor Retailer prepares to kick off early Winter Market
today Nov 7, 2018
The Outdoor Retailer Winter Market trade show will set up shop early in Denver, Colorado from November 8 through 11, featuring over 500 exhibitors.
Normally scheduled in January, the business-to-business outdoor sports equipment show will offer visitors an array of outdoor and sporting apparel, footwear, accessories and special gear.
With this new timetable, retailers can see next year’s products before the close of the main winter buying season, giving buyers the opportunity to adjust their orders based on industry and consumer trends.
Microfiber brand PrimaLoft will use the trade show to debut its new biodegradable synthetic insulation, while brands like climbing company Black Diamond, sportsgear label Helly Hansen, and backpacking brand Outdoor Retailer will release updated versions of popular products.
Other exhibitors will include Helle Knives, Dæhlie, Sherpa Adventure Gear, Native Eyewear, Hults Bruk, Tundra, Adidas, Mammut, Hoka One One and Dickies, among others.
The November show will also host the debut Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards, sponsored by Capital One Spark Business. At the ceremony, a panel of judges will recognize brands offering the top "cutting edge and carefully considered products and retail services" at the trade show. The award ceremony will be held live at the market on November 8.
Specialized winter snow and ski vendors who normally attended the January Winter Market will transition to the company's newly created Snow Show in January.
In addition to its Snow Show and Winter Market, the Outdoor Retailer will also host a Summer Market in June of 2019 in Denver.
