Eagle Creek travel gear proudly celebrated their 40th anniversary at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2015 with a star-studded bash featuring legends from Eagle Creek past and present, along with industry luminaries and hundreds of revelers.
When Eagle Creek National Sales Director Tim McGuire promised that he could “get Ricky (Schlesinger) to play guitar and Steve (Barker) to sing” at the 40th party, the management team quickly took him up on his offer. The bash, held at Pierpont Place in Salt Lake City, was attended by about 250 industry well-wishers who partied and reminisced into the night as the Industry All-Star Band rocked the house
VIPs in attendance included Eagle Creek founders Steve and Nona Barker, along with original Sales Director Ricky Schlesinger, Eagle Creek President Roger Spatz, and a host of long-time ‘Creekers’ and valued partners.
“The 40th Anniversary is a time to reflect and celebrate what we’ve already accomplished and to support and refine our vision of how we will influence the future of travel,” said Roger Spatz, President at Eagle Creek. “40 years spent focusing on the travel needs of consumers gives us special insight and depth of understanding on how to deliver exceptional, well-made product, and we’re thankful for that. But we’re also celebrating the people whose passion has propelled the brand to the level it’s at now.” Spatz continued, “we’ve been so fortunate to have such amazing team members, and industry partners who have been with us through our ups and downs, retail staff that loves the product and shares that love on the shop floor, and of course, our passionate consumers without whom we wouldn’t have 40 years of travel tales to tell.”
