After 20 years of being in Salt Lake City, the Outdoor Retailer is moving to Denver, Colorado for the next 5 years. Sorry to Salt Lake City, but congratulations to Denver! The Outdoor Retailer is the world’s leading business-to-business outdoor sports show where industry brands, retailers, reps, suppliers and leaders gather. It is the outdoor sports show of choice showcasing the largest collection of innovative and unique gear, apparel, hard goods, footwear and accessories.
After speaking with a few of the exhibitors, it seems like they're pretty excited about the move. What's even more exciting is that in addition to the January Market+Snow Show and Summer Market, there will be a Winter Market in November. Most felt that it would be a good change, so that's a good thing!!
No matter the change, the mood of the show was very upbeat, extremely busy, lots of attendees and a lot of business being made. I had a great time at the show, and saw some really cool products that I've highlighted here:
Special brand highlight:
Dish and Duer combines Fashion & Function. DUER started in 2013 when an entrepreneur wanted to bridge the gap between fashion and functional clothing. With 25 years making jeans for big names like Levi Strauss and a new love of cycling, Gary Lenett saw an opportunity for purposeful fashion that didn’t exist on the market. He partnered with Abid Hafeez, a performance fabric expert with over 25 years of experience with technical brands, and DUER was born.
I am a new fan of Dish and Duer jeans. Thank you guys for sending me a pair to try the Volcanic High Rise Skinny. I love them!! They are so comfortable. I can run in them, exercise in them, go out in them, clean in them and so much more. They look like jeans but they don't feel like jeans.
You guys make sure you check them out. They have a great REFERRAL Program "Give $25 and Get $25", make sure you click on the link and try them out. The high rise jeans are only $119, and if you sign up, you get $10 Off your first purchase!
