It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a half a year since we went to the SHOT show in Orlando this past January, but it’s time to do a little more traveling again. Woods Monkey will be represented at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City this year. From our undertanding, when it comes to outdoors gear, OR is the place to be. So, just for you folks, the truck is getting packed and we’re driving the 1800 miles out to SLC just to bring you all the latest news on outdoors gear and apparel that will be hitting the shelves this fall. Okay, Okay, we’re going to visit a few national parks on the way out there as well, but the trip is all about OR.
It starts on July 20th with the Open Air Demo event in Ogden Utah. This is a day solely dedicated to letting people try out all the cool new outdoors gear including climbing gear, boats/kayaks/canoes, tents, sleeping bags, moutain bikes, and just about anything else you can think of. Once the Open Air event is over, everyone moves inside the Salt Palace center the next three days to get down to business. Buyers will be there as well as the media, and we’ve got appointments lined up all week to talk to representatives from various companies. We’ll do our best to post real-time coverage throughout each day and at the end of each day so you can see what’s going on out West.
Make sure to check in starting the 20th to see what we find at the show and to find out what’s worth talking about. Also, if you have some special piece of gear that you’ve heard about and would like checked out, post your comments at the bottom of this article and we’ll do our best to include it during our recon of the event!
