Coming off the four-day November show that some attendees said was too long and too quiet, Outdoor Retailer is scaling back. The three shows scheduled in 2019 will each be three days long—meaning Summer Market and Winter Market are both one day shorter.
The Snow Show was originally three days and will stay at three days.
“We had a great first year in Denver, and that success is a result of the ongoing support of our industry and from the outdoor and snowsports communities,” Outdoor Retailer Vice President and Show Director Marisa Nicholson said in a news release. “To maintain that momentum, we know it’s crucial to continue to evolve and enhance the shows and to take action on the feedback we’ve received. What we learned is that three full days is sufficient. Now, we are excited to head into 2019 with three Outdoor Retailer shows structured to create the best platform for all.”
The new Outdoor Retailer 2019 show dates are:
Snow Show: Jan. 30 to Feb. 1
Summer Market: June 18 to 20; Demo Experience: June 17
Winter Market: Nov. 5 to 7
