Outdoor Retailer - July 2021 - 4

FIRST WORDS
Join Us Right Now
ONLY AT OUTDOOR RETAILER WILL YOU FIND
an incredible breadth of outdoor industry education
and access to insight from leading experts.
And this summer's sessions start now.
Learn the latest retail data; dive into future
outdoor trends; discover steps to take action
on climate; fi nd ways to connect to new outdoor
enthusiasts and create equitable opportunities;
see the latest gear innovations; gain
new skills to boost relationships, develop talent,
and win consumers; and more!
Education sessions begin online this
month, then continue in person in Denver.
Each is an opportunity to help you thrive in our
dynamic outdoor community. The pre-show
webinars will equip you with knowledge to
take into meetings at the Show. They're all free
and open to anyone-read about each session
and fi nd registration links on page 18.
At the Colorado Convention Center, we've
moved all education to one location to allow for
expanded seating. These sessions will also be
available online and on demand.
The conversations at Outdoor Retailer
have always provided so much value for attendees.
Sarah Schuster, attendee relations
CONTRIBUTORS
manager, recently wrote how she leaves the
Show with a " backpack full of knowledge. " She
arrives empty-handed, and by the end, she's
loaded with inspiration, catalogs, samples,
swag, and buckets of ideas. Her bag is full and
her enthusiasm contagious.
Sharing new information with staff and
colleagues can go a long way, she said. " While
everyone from your team may not be able to attend,
passing along what you learn with them
can uplift your business. "
With education accessible online now,
it's easier than ever to spread the excitement.
Access sessions on demand; watch on your
own time; and rewatch. Encourage your teams
to tune in too. Every session is a powerful opportunity
to grow, advance your business, fi nd
solutions, and gain new perspectives. We hope
you can join us online this month, and we look
forward to seeing you in Denver.
