The Big Gear Show has continued to show strength in numbers on both the retail registrations front, as well as with exhibitor booth sales. Currently, over 200 retail businesses, representing more than 900 stores have registered, eclipsing the total number of retailers that attended the 2021 event.
These pre-registered retail businesses span 42 states with 85% of retailers representing diverse regions in the northeast, southeast, midwest, and western United States. 90% of the registered retail attendees are key decision makers, such as shop owners, presidents or buyers from top names like Peak Sports, Great Outdoor Shop, River Sport Outfitters, Worldwide Cyclery, Topanga Creek Outpost, Moosejaw, CrawDaddy Outdoors and others. The full list of registered retail businesses is here.
Exhibitor booth sales have also reached a milestone; twice as many exhibitors have registered for exhibit space compared to this time last year. Top bike brands include SRAM, Pinarello, Tern, Diamondback, Magnum, Quietkat, Scott, POC Sports, Yakima, TRP. Top paddle and outdoor registered for the 2022 show include Astral, Johnson Outdoors, (Old Town, Ocean Kayak), Thule as well as Black Diamond, COSTA, KEEN, Mountain Hardwear and Petzl.. The full exhibitor list is here.
“At this point last year, we had half the number of brands registered and we’re seeing increases in all categories including cycling, paddlesports and even subcategories of outdoor like climb and overland,” said Sutton Bacon, founder of The Big Gear Show. “To think that we’ve already eclipsed last year’s final retailer attendance numbers, and it’s not even May yet, is a sign that these industries want to gather at the nation’s newest and best experiential, outdoor trade show for 2022.”
Deer Valley Resort will once again play host to The Big Gear Show’s fully outdoor format, which offers world-class product demos in an active lifestyle utopia. Park City’s Deer Valley Resort is just 35 minutes from the new Salt Lake City International Airport.
