If you're attending Grassroots Outdoor Alliance's Connect Show and Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in June, you now have one extra day of breathing room in between the two shows.
GOA has bumped up its June buying show by one day. The new dates for Grassroots Connect will be June 9 to 12 at the Knoxville Convention Center, rather than June 10 to 13.
Six days later, Outdoor Retailer Summer Market kicks off on June 18 at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver.
“We’re all a part of the evolving outdoor industry timeline, and honing in on the most effective venues and dates are a key part of that evolution," GOA President Rich Hill said in a statement. The shift of spring Grassroots Connect dates was an easy choice with real benefits for our vendors and partners."
The fall Grassroots Connect Show will return to Denver from Nov. 1 to 4, once again butting up to Outdoor Retailer Winter Market slated for Nov. 5 to 7. According to GOA, the first co-located show drew a record level of interest, energy, and appointments.
