Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show Has Sold Out of Space

Outdoor Retailer, the premier trade event and community gathering for the outdoor and snowsports industries, today announced its first show in Denver, the Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show on January 25-28, 2018 has sold out of space in the Colorado Convention Center. The show, combining Outdoor Retailer and the SIA Snow Show, will showcase an entirely new format with exhibits spanning three floors and for the first time, the public will be invited to select marquee events.

“The positive response to the combined show has exceeded all expectations,” said Marisa Nicholson, vice president and show director for all Outdoor Retailer events. “We are going to be bursting at the seams with gear. The opportunities for product discovery and access to outdoor and snow brands will be unparalleled, as well as the other hallmarks of an Outdoor Retailer show – education, networking and events that allow us all to connect with the outdoor community.”

Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show will also feature a new collaboration: Outdoor Retailer will partner with Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks to bring the Fashion Show back to Denver at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Happening on Night 2, Friday, January 26, the lineup begins with the Fashion Show featuring DJ Matt Cassidy, followed by JAUZ and Mac Miller. The Fashion Show and concert will be open to show attendees and the public, extending the show’s reach, providing a new platform for brand engagement and giving consumers a glimpse into the fashion coming from the outdoor and snowsports industries for next season. Tickets will be on sale soon.

Inside the Colorado Convention Center, the concentration of brands means Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show will offer unprecedented opportunities to discover new products and ideas across all areas of the show and its events:


  • Venture Out: Brands celebrating the modern outdoor experience. Visit the RANGER Station there to understand the trends and consumers beyond this movement
  • Luxe: An immersive experience in premium and luxury snow and outdoor apparel
