Think your booth is the coolest?

The Daily, Outdoor Retailer's only official daily show magazine, is currently accepting nominations for the Best of Booth (BoB) Awards, which honor the exhibitors whose booths best capture the brand’s essence in engaging ways.

“The BoB award is a long-standing SNEWS and Outdoor Retailer tradition that celebrates creativity in booth design,” says Kristin Hostetter, editor-in-chief of SNEWS and The Daily. “We know that brands invest a considerable amount of energy and money to create trade show spaces that not only reflect the spirit of their brands, but also create a fun, welcoming, and productive place to do business.”

What separates you from everyone else? With hundreds of exhibits at this show, there’s a lot of cool gear out there. Tell us why yours is the coolest.

The BoB award isn't just about the gear you're showing; it’s also about the people behind the gear. In your nomination, tell us what your exhibit staff is doing to create connections and build the outdoor community around your products.
