Outdoor Retailer said more than 550 brands are exhibiting at Outdoor Retailer this summer in Denver, CO with over 20 percent representing new exhibitors.

The event will be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver from June 9-11.

“For 40 years, Outdoor Retailer has provided a basecamp for our community to gather, share business solutions, exchange stories, and celebrate the outdoors,” said Marisa Nicholson, Outdoor Retailer senior vice president and show director. “Now, heading into Summer, we have seen over 200 percent growth since last year in brand participation as companies are returning from pandemic restrictions, making this an important opportunity for our vibrant community to come together to discover new opportunities and products that will nurture our collective success and draw more people into the outdoor experience.”

Highlights of this summer’s OR Show include the Outdoor Retailer’s 40th Anniversary party, the 12th Annual Outdoor Retailer Inspiration Awards, educational sessions and panel discussions, the OIA Industry Breakfast with keynote speaker Doug Stephens, founder of Retail Prophet, and the 5Point Film Festival.

“As we mark this milestone in Denver, we’re also adapting to today’s business climate and evolving to meet the needs of diverse stakeholders,” continued Nicholson. “We are actively working to incorporate new components into the Outdoor Retailer experience as we make plans for the next three years in Salt Lake, and we look forward to sharing some of those plans during this summer’s show.”
