Outdoor Retailer is the only place where you can see an entire product cycle from concept to production.

A show within a show, the Source section hosts more than 300 raw material suppliers that bring the latest innovations, technologies, industrial designs and trend forecasts the outdoor industry has to offer.

It helps designers, R&D and sourcing teams from both the outdoor industry and the technology industry find materials and ideas for the products that exist only as ideas. Because alongside the latest finished goods, the raw materials in Source are even further ahead of the game.

Source is also home to the Trend + Design Center presented by HeiQ, a place for the community to gather and hear what’s next. From trend forecasting with some of the preeminent trend houses in the business to discussions on industrial design and materials innovation, the Trend + Design Center anchors the supplier story at Outdoor Retailer and serves the design audience with compelling education and networking events.

Stay tuned—education at the Trend + Design Center will be published in the beginning of June!
