BEST IN SHOW: OUTDOOR RETAILER SUMMER MARKET 2017

posted by gumptiongear August 3, 2017 0 comments

This is the place where industry trends are defined, and the latest cutting-edge products and technologies are on display.

The close of last week’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market officially marks the end of a 22-year run for Salt Lake City as the host city as the  twice-yearly trade show will now head to Colorado.
