TravelChair Returns as Official Camp Chair of the Open Air Demo at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2016


GIG HARBOR, Wash. - July 22, 2016 - For the second consecutive year, TravelChair, maker of best-selling camping furniture, will be recognized as the Official Camp Chair Provider of Outdoor Retailer's popular Open Air Demo. The company will set up three "chill zones" to provide seating, shade, and water to an estimated 2,500 retailers and journalists on August 2. 

OAD, an interactive demo day held at Pineview Reservoir in Huntsville, Utah, precedes the four-day Outdoor Retailer Summer Market tradeshow, the outdoor industry's annual gathering, linking retailers and manufacturers of summer gear and accessories. Outdoor Retailer will take place August 3-6, 2016 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City. TravelChair will exhibit at both events.

"We're pleased to welcome back TravelChair as our Official Camp Chair Provider," said Marisa Nicholson, vice president and Outdoor Retailer show director. "Last year, attendees of the Open Air Demo really enjoyed having designated areas to get out of the sun, sit down, and even hold a meeting. This year, the chill zones will be right on the beach, giving attendees a place to relax, network, and take in OAD's festival atmosphere."

TravelChair will furnish three chill zones and event shuttle bus stops with a broad selection of its chairs and benches, including newcomers to the line the Koala and Joey C-Series chairs. At its booth, TravelChair will display the new Kanpai Bamboo Table, which has adjustable-height legs, two wine glass holders and a built-in bottle opener (MSRP $209.95).

Described TravelChair Vice President of Sales and Marketing Daniel Roso, "Our newest designs reflect a trend of camp furniture getting lighter and more packable, while at the same time becoming more fashion-forward."

"The Koala is the first ultra-light packable high-back camp chair in its class with armrests, a cup holder, and an adjustable pillow. The Joey C-Series offers all the terrific features of the original Joey chair, but at a really budget-friendly price of $54.95."

Roso added that TravelChair will host a fundraising party benefitting Peak 7 Adventures at its booth at 4:30pm Thursday, August 4. There, attendees can support Peak 7's mission to provide first-rate outdoor adventure experiences for youth by purchasing Joey chairs for just $30 - a discount of 65%. 

TravelChair will have its full line on display, and is located in booth #D200 at the Open Air Demo, and in booth #32039 on the Outdoor Retailer show floor. For more information about TravelChair, please go to
