Outdoor Retailer, the largest outdoor recreation trade show in North America, is moving to Denver in January 2018.

“What we’re really saying today — and I’m making this pledge to the entire industry — is that we’re in this for the long term,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said at a press conference in City Park. “We recognize that outdoor recreation is not just jobs and economic impact, but it is also a way of making our state healthier.”

The convention is expected to draw 85,000 attendees per year and bring in $110 million.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Luis Benitez, director of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office, were also at the event along with local outdoors-focused businesses.

Upcoming Dates

  • Jan. 25-28: combined Outdoor Retailer and SnowSports Industries America show
  • July 23-26: Outdoor Retailer summer market show
  • Nov. 8-11: Outdoor Retailer winter market show
