Wake up with SNEWS and smell the coffee at Outdoor Retailer

On Days 1, 2, and 3 of Outdoor Retailer, join SNEWS and Copper Cow Coffee for your caffeine fix

Every time Outdoor Retailer rolls around, we get countless emails from incredible people from awesome brands who want to catch up and show us what's new. More often than not, we have to pass up the amazing events you're hosting because we're tucked away in an undisclosed location in the Salt Palace, cranking away at Outdoor Retailer Daily.

This time, though, it's different. We've got not one, but four ways for you to meet the SNEWS team at the show. 

On Days 1, 2, and 3, join us for fresh Copper Cow Coffee at the SNEWS and Backpacker Magazine booth (#22050) from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Copper Cow Coffee is coming out from California to share their natural, specialty Vietnamese coffee, brewed in innovative, single-serving pour over bags, ideal for camping and backpacking. 

The first 50 people to arrive each morning will get a free SNEWS BUFF. We'll also guide you through signing up for our newsletter and new media opportunity email list specifically for PR and marketing professionals to get a heads up on coverage opportunities for SNEWS, Outdoor Retailer Daily, and other sister publications.

On Friday afternoon, Day 3 of the show, come back to the SNEWS booth for an AdventureConnect Happy Hour with SNEWS, the Adventure Travel Trade Association, Backpacker Magazine, and Catalonia. The first 75 people will get a complimentary glass of Cava. And who can pass that up?


Learn more about adventure in Catalonia while drinking a glass of Cava with the SNEWS team, Adventure Travel Trade Association, and Backpacker Magazine.

We hope to see you there.

Safe travels! We'll see you soon.
