Can we please go outside to play?

This summer, The Big Gear Show is moving up the mountain to Park City. The right brands, the right place, the right time. Join us August 3-5, 2021 for America's first open-air tradeshow.

See, Try, Buy - All at Once

The Big Gear Show is an invitation-only, multi-category trade event for the paddlesports, cycling, climbing, and camping markets. We are solely focused on meeting the needs of outdoor shops and gear builders. The demo is fully integrated into the event, so buyers get to paddle, ride bikes, and test gear all day. There is simply no better place to discover new brands and products.

The 500 Best Retailers

We are hosting the top outdoor gear and bike shops from across North America. Attendance is limited to 500 shops. We even subsidize your travel.

The Brands They Want to See

The Big Gear Show is limited to only 250 exhibitors - hand-selected by us and voted on by the retailers. Maximum engagement, minimal distraction.

Don't take it from us...

Here's What Retailers are Saying


An Outdoor Paradise

Park City is an outdoor paradise in the summer. It is home to some of the most beautiful lakes and rivers, pristine hiking trails and vistas, and legendary road and mountain biking in North America. The event will take place at Deer Valley Resort. This is a place retailers and brand teams want to go for vacation – so we decided to bring the show to a place that we’re all excited about.

Easy Airport Access

Getting to Park City is super easy. It’s located just 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Take a shuttle, Uber, or rent a car for the quick drive to Park City.

Perfect Weather

In August, Park City averages highs in the low-80s, lows in the upper-40s, and only an inch of rain for the whole month. With an elevation of 7,000 feet, it’s ideal for outdoor recreation.

Suprisingly Affordable

Park City may be home to the rich and famous in the winter – but in the height of the offseason, we’ll have the mountains, trails, and nightlife to ourselves. 

I want to go! How do I get an invite?

If you’re a cool gear shop or a hardgoods brand with a story to tell, we want to hear from you. We have limited availability for next summer, but e-mail us here to request an invitation.
