Outdoor Innovation Show
First ever all-innovation, hosted-buyer, outdoor trade show hits the market in Salt Lake City 2018!

By Jared Nichols, President, Outdoor Innovation

LOGAN, Ut., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —, the original creator of the first ever all-outdoor online directory and marketplace, is doing their part to remind us that innovation is paramount in the outdoor industry, that Utah is the best place on the planet to hold an outdoor trade show, and that it is time for innovation to the tired old trade show model. Thus they have developed the groundbreaking all-innovation, hosted-buyer event coming to the Salt Palace 2018. For all the new outdoor products out there that get lost in the sea of trade show inefficiency, this is a match made in trade show heaven! Of the new event format, Outdoor Innovation President, Jared Nichols, remarked, “Hello 1980’s. Take back your boring, chaotic and ineffective outdoor trade show model. Instead of staffing bloated booths, hosting fashion shows, and casting your products into the chaos of the aisle-walking-buyer, the Outdoor Innovation Show will focus on 1) featuring innovative outdoor products from vendors in the hook & bullet, human powered and powersports industries, and 2) arranging vendor-requested appointments with buyers every hour on the hour, through our proprietary software platform. Put these two elements together and you’ve got a show that is as close to perfect as the Salt Lake Airport is to the Salt Palace convention center!”

The Outdoor Innovation Show will bring together innovators, seed money financiers, and sourcing agents to create a real-time transaction oriented environment. Imagine an in-show seed money financier funding a buyer’s purchase order for an innovative vendor. In another exclusive first, the Show has created a marquee event called the ‘PITCH’ where vendors will present their products to a panel of seed money investors with options to BUY ME, EQUITY ME, or DEBT ME.

On the final day of the show, Outdoor Innovation will open the doors to a limited number of pre-registered local sportsmen. This unprecedented environment will give Utahns an opportunity to purchase innovative products and simultaneously give the hosted buyers a chance to observe consumer behavior.
