Less than six weeks out from its Winter Market Show, Outdoor Retailer (OR) reported that close to 330,000 square-feet of exhibit space is currently sold, putting the trade show on par with last year's Winter Market. As of this week, OR is also hosting more than 175 new exhibitors.
“Despite uncertain times for several retail categories, recent industry research shows the outdoor market remains healthy,” said Kenji Haroutunian, Outdoor Retailer show director. “This trend is holding true for the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market as nearly 800 exhibitors have purchased an average of five percent more floor space than in years past. At this point, we are on target to meet last year's exhibitor and attendee numbers.”
