Dates changed for Outdoor Retailer

Organizers of Outdoor Retailer, a trade show held in Salt Lake City, have announced earlier dates for the 2016 Winter Market. According to a press release, the event is scheduled for January 6 through 10. The change moves the show earlier in participants’ winter sales cycle and also distances the event from Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the Sundance Film Festival. "We are always looking for ways to improve the value of the show to not only our attendees and exhibitors, but to the industry at large," said Marisa Nicholson, vice president and show director for Outdoor Retailer, in the release.
