Outdoor Retailer Show Set to Start in Salt Lake City

The twice-yearly Outdoor Retailers Show runs Aug 3 through Aug 6, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City. The sold out event is expected to attract some 21,000 people, so there will be heavy traffic and few parking spots in the immediate area.

Most events are closed to the public. The purpose of the show is to introduce the nproducts and technologies to retailers and to the press.javascript:void(0)

One exception is the free Slacker Clinics being held by Gibbon near the south entrance to the Salt Palace at 9 am, noon and 3 pm. Gibbon pro liners will be there to help participants learn to better master the balance game. Also, there will be some goodies given away at the clinics.

On Tuesday morning, US Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Nancy Sutley, chairwoman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, will address those attending the show. They will then participate in two “listening sessions” to hear Utahns' ideas about conservation, recreation and management of public lands.

Both listening session will be on Tuesday. One will be at 10 am for the general public and another at 2 pm for youths. Both will be in the Wasatch Room of the Radisson Hotel Downtown, 215 W. South Temple.
