Innovative, efficient, and energizing, join over 100 independent specialty outdoor retailers and over 100 top brand exhibitors and sales reps for our Fall ‘18 Connect show. The invitation-only Connect features a unique format that simplifies the typical tradeshow, focusing efforts on buying and selling, collaborating on product developments and performance, and learning about industry trends, data, and best practices. We are excited about bringing the heart of our industry together, as key brands and retailers work together to set the course for the category as a whole.
