EORA Kicks Off 2015

January Board Meeting and Greenville Show Both Highly Successful
Asheville, NC — EORA rang in the new year at its annual January Board meeting by proudly welcoming 18 new members to the organization. These new additions bring the total membership to 500 and increase the diversity of brands to represent an even wider range of products.
“We are so pleased and excited to grow our membership across all our represented regions,” noted Debbie Motz, Executive Director of EORA.
The board next meets in August at the summer Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City.
Additionally, on the heels of the OR and SIA shows, EORA hosted a well-attended three day show in Greenville, SC in February at the TD Convention Center.
The Greenville show attracted over 650 buyers to preview over 550 different product lines with a mix of winter and outdoor products—everything from skis and helmets to accessories and stand-up paddleboards. Over 95% of exhibitors were EORA members, with exceptional participation from the Southeastern states. The next EORA shows will be held in SC, NJ, NH and FL in mid to late June.
