After recent polling done by Outdoor Retailer (OR) and Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), the future home for OR’s tradeshows remains undecided. SportsOnesSource.com reports that the polls collected input from over 3,000 tradeshow stakeholders in an attempt to understand the needs of the growing Outdoor Retailer industry.
The poll results confirmed the existing challenges OR faces as it outgrows its existing facilities in Salt Lake City. In the end a decision has yet to be made, although findings from surveys show that OR attendees lean toward keeping the show in Salt Lake City.
“We will continue to work with city and public officials in Salt Lake and Denver, industry favorites as potential host cities–both of which are currently too small to meet the tradeshow’s needs in one venue,” said Kenji Haroutunian, Nielsen Expo Outdoor Group vice president and OR show director. “That being said, we are also pursuing other venues that are large enough to house OR. We will weigh these options with stakeholder feedback and we hope to have a decision on location by the end of the year.”
