In 2017, the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show leveraged its powerful voice to take a stand for public lands and move the show to Colorado. Outdoor Retailer and many of its largest players spoke loudly and clearly – protecting our public lands are fundamental to the health of the outdoor recreation industry.
Join Colorado’s environmental community, outdoor businesses, brands, and athletes in welcoming the Outdoor Retailer Show to Colorado as we celebrate the industry’s leadership on public land conservation and collectively plant a stake in the ground to protect the places we play, from protecting public lands and wildlife to combating climate change.
Along with the stellar speakers, guests will also have an opportunity to take a stand for climate change and public land protection at the event via action-based activations.
