August 31, 2023
Asheville, NC — August 31, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – For over 40 years, 360 Adventure Collective (360 AC) has been fostering connections to grow the outdoor industry through engaging regional events for sales reps and retailers. This fall, the member association is thrilled to announce its lineup of regional winter shows and on-mountain demo events, along with an updated website that will make it easier for retailers to find which show is right for them.
To kick off the season, 360 Adventure Collective will host its annual 360 AC Experience-Paddlesports at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC, September 12-13, 2023. This event gives retailers the opportunity to demo the best paddlesports equipment the industry has to offer from leading brands in a world-class setting. Retailers can still register for free to attend this event at 360 AC’s website.
In addition to the Paddlesports Experience, 360 AC has six upcoming winter buying events including:
- Southeast Winter Expo – November 13-16, 2023 – Greenville, SC
- Mid-Atlantic Western Winter Market – November 15-16, 2023 – Rochester, NY
- New England Winter Market – December 4-7, 2023 – Worcester, MA
- New England Winter Expo – January 8-11, 2024 – Providence, RI
- Pico On-Snow Demo – January 23-24, 2024 – Killington, VT
- Waterville On-Snow Demo – February 6-7, 2024 – Waterville Valley, NH
“These smaller, regional shows continue to grow in demand as the outdoor trade show landscape evolves, and we are proud to provide opportunities for retailers to see more brands and connect with other industry pros at our events,” states Stacey Gellert, 360 Adventure Collective’s Executive Director. “Our updated website also makes it easier than ever for retailers to narrow down what show is best for them, find their reps, and register easily…all for free!”
Both the Southeast Winter Expo in Greenville, SC and the New England Winter Market in Worcester, MA have grown to include 30 to 40 additional booths with more products, providing retailers with exposure to even more brands at these events. The Southeast Winter Expo also includes a free catered lunch every day, and for the first time since the shutdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic, the popular opening night reception will be returning.
