“360 Adventure Collective is proud to provide a support system to build strong relationships between retailers and vendors through these cost-effective events in intimate, localized settings,” says Stacey Gellert, incoming executive director of 360 Adventure Collective. “Hosting Demos at two venues contributed to higher attendance by allowing for staff scheduling flexibility and a secondary option in case of poor weather conditions. Between the exclusive on snow access to new equipment and the camaraderie of our après events, we were able to deliver unforgettable experiences for our partners.”
