Paddlesports Retailer, the tradeshow designed “for paddlers, by paddlers” which debuted in August of last year, has announced that it will continue to offer lodging breaks to retailers in 2018.

“We’ve got some exciting new additions in the works for Paddlesports Retailer in year two, but our commitment to retailers will remain at the heart of all we do,” says Show Manager Marcus Shoffner. “We had more than 275 unique retailers in our inaugural year, and we plan to grow that number significantly by making attendance as accessible as possible.”

Buyers who register for the show and book lodging within the designated room block will be given a hotel credit that corresponds with the number of nights booked with an opportunity to receive a reimbursement of up to $375 for attending the show. Lodging reimbursements will be based off a three-tier incentive based off the length of your attendance.

  • Stay one night: $50 reimbursement
  • Stay two nights: $150 reimbursement
  • Stay three nights: $375 reimbursement

Paddlesports Retailer takes place Aug. 27 – Aug. 30 in Oklahoma City at the Cox Convention Center. The new venue offers a central geographic location along with a new, world-class urban whitewater paddling center and an additional 90,000 square feet of exhibition space.
