Summer Market Exhibitor Registration Available Now Online

Manufacturer employees can be added to company badge roster through convenient online form

Exhibitor badge registration for Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2012, the outdoor industry’s premier tradeshow and demo event held August 2-5, can now be secured online at

Exhibitor badges are free to exhibitor staff and can be added by the Outdoor Retailer main exhibiting company contact.

During Outdoor Retailer Summer Market approximately 25,000 manufacturers, retailers, designers and advocates representing multiple categories across the outdoor industry will converge on Utah’s Wasatch Front for product testing at Jordanelle State Park (August 1) and for exhibitions and seminars at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City (August 2-5).

As part of OR’s Green Steps Program and other initiatives to enhance the overall show experience, badges will not be mailed to exhibitors pre-show. Instead, participants will be able to pick up their badges at the Open Air Demo, or at all entrances of the Salt Palace Convention Center, including at the New Exhibitor Pavilion.

Similar to checking in for a flight, exhibitors and staff should print their registration confirmation at home, bring that and their ID to the show, and then print their badge onsite at the Convention Center. Or, download the confirmation email to a smartphone, which will be scanned onsite.

Early registration ensures participants will receive all the pre-show information necessary to fully plan for and meet their business objectives for the show, including the ability to log into the online Summer Market Planner.

All Outdoor Retailer Summer Market badge registration is available at
