Things You Need to Do at Outdoor Retailer
It’s Day 1 of Outdoor Retailer week once again! Only this time it’s…different. We’re not connecting bumpy flight from Vegas. We’re not gazing at the Wasatch as we land. We’re not eating at Red Iguana or drinking at Squatters.
The good news is that we’re at new show venue all together—this time exploring the Mile-High City!
Here’s how we plan to navigate the show.
Download the app
The Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show App is the handiest tool on the show floor. It has a schedule of events, a list of new products, and, most importantly, a map of the three-level exhibitor layout.
Carry a map
Keeping a map on hand is great for all the reasons listed above, only it’s more reliable because it’s analog. Like guidebooks (see what we did there?).

Walk the city streets
Everyone knows that a little downtime is key for your sanity by the end of the show. Take some time to explore cool Denver neighborhoods like RiNo, Golden Triangle Arts District, and Larimer Square, and hitting up local shops, restaurants, and breweries.
