Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2008

This past weekend we headed to Salt Lake City for the biannual Outdoor Retailer Show. OR attracts thousands of retailers that are looking for outdoor specific products, services, brands, fresh ideas, apparel launches, and outdoor innovation. With so people in the outdoor industry in the same place, Outdoor Retailer is an excellent opportunity to increase awareness for Leave No Trace.

Thanks to the support of our amazing partners, Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2008 was particularly successful. Subaru and Backpacker Magazine make it possible for us to host the wildly popular Great Gear Giveaway. Over 800 people participated in our Leave No Trace Ethics Quest for the chance to win 17 prize packages full of amazing gear donated by many generous companies in the outdoor industry.

Additionally, many of our partners host special events during the show that benefit Leave No Trace in unique ways. We want to thank everyone who held events for their support. Check out our slideshow to see a few highlights of the show.
