Finally, a business-to-business trade event that takes us out of a big, overly-crowded, air-conditioned building and into an environment akin to what all of us do when we cherish our free-time. That’s not rocket science, it is pure common-sense; folks who love time outside doing purposeful business in it…. and even better, in a location considered one of the best in North America.
We know from our research that our industry’s manufacturers want a no-hassle, easy, productive, and affordable event. Bicycle retailers wish to discover new products, attend timely and relevant education tracks, and be provided with the ability to product test leading hard goods on world-class trails, gravel, roads, and bikeways. Of course catching-up with colleagues and peers during hosted networking opportunities (what’s it been, 1.5 years?) and finally we have a B2B event that is perfectly created for today’s bicycle industry, in a post-pandemic world …and frankly long overdue regardless.
Read on, these pages are meant to clearly explain our thinking and what you can expect from The Big Gear Show. Feel free to write to me with any questions about the event. I look forward to seeing you in Park City!
“The National Bicycle Dealers Association is thrilled to be the Presenting Partner of the Big Gear Show.
We see the Big Gear Show as a one-of-a-kind experience for retailers to gain exposure to retails in other recreational industries and join in cross experiential educational content. We look forward to providing timely content to retailers via our super seminars, as well as hosting several peer-to-peer networking opportunities. “
