It's here! Grab a comfy seat and a brew, and thumb through the 88 pages of the official Pre-Show edition of The Daily, featuring the hottest new gear, plus insider details.

We've created special features for reps, brands, retailers, and media, with curated tips on how to tackle the show and make the most out of the experience. Read about exhibitors you don't want to miss, rules of engagement, education opportunities and other events, and more.

Ryan Johnson, publisher of The Daily and senior account executive of Outdoor Retailer, answers some tough questions about what they learned from OR+SS, changes as a result of feedback, and the newest members of the family.

The Outdoor Foundation Lise Aangeenbrug lays out our industry's most pressing agenda items for 2018.

In our New Product Gallery, we highlight the latest and greatest in lifestyle and performance apparel, and footwear, camping, climbing, and paddling.

Plus, the show floor map is essential for all of your pre-show planning. 

To shoot the cover, we caught the sunrise over the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver—the new setting of the show. We brought along a hiker, climber, paddler, and hipster, all clad in the newest gear from Patagonia, BIC, SCARPA, Peak Design, and other brands exhibiting at the show. 

Now that the show is over, catch up on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 editions.
