Next summer, the outdoor industry will have two trade shows to attend—or choose between: Outdoor Retailer and a brand new show. The Big Gear Show just announced that it's setting up a hardgoods-only event in Salt Lake City, Utah, featuring a consumer day and pre-show outdoor excursion.

Organizers Sutton Bacon and Darren Bush, the team behind Paddlesports Retailer, say they're expecting about 450 exhibitors and 1,500 unique stores, with one to four buyers from each store. Will you be there?
