Eastern Outdoor Reps Association will be moving their Hartford, CT show serving the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast market from August to July in 2008. The EORA is also presently investigating a site for a post Labor Day on-water paddlesports event. Historically, the EORA show has always been after the Outdoor Retailer Trade show, and many times after Labor Day, but a combination of earlier manufacturers deadlines, travel schedules, delivery of samples and sales meetings has caused EORA management to believe that timelines are shifting in the industry.
Taking into consideration national show dates, other EORA show dates and the availability of the Connecticut Convention Center, its been decided that the EORA will be hosting the Mid-Atlantic /Northeast 2008 Regional Market July 28th, 29th, and 30th. The EORA dates are a week after the Friedrichafen show in Germany and it will be a week prior to the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The 2009 show dates will be:
· August 2, 3, 4, 2009 Carolina First Center in Greenville, SC.
· August 10, 11, 12, 2009 Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.
