The Outdoor Retailer Warm Up

This event will be held on Thursday, July 19th


This new happy hour event will include a dynamic panel discussion on themes and trends shaping the booming outdoors industry. And we warmly invite our outdoor industry entrepreneurs, investors, designers, engineers and hobbyists to join us for a lively evening of schmoozing with other BusinessDen readers.

Limber up those outdoorsy chops by hearing about themes that include:

• How the relocation of OR from Salt Lake City to Denver will affect Colorado’s outdoor industry
• The latest innovations in outdoor gear/apparel and how small Colorado brands are competing with the national and international brands
• The backlash against the boom in outdoor tourism in some of Colorado’s iconic towns
• How our public lands should be regulated to prevent Colorado’s treasures from being hiked/camped and loved to death
• Looking into the crystal ball: what will be important for outdoors companies in 5 and 10 years
To take us down this road, we’re assembling an all-star panel of Colorado business owners:

April Archer – CEO at SaraBella Flyfishing

Suzanne Fanch – Owner at Devil’s Thumb Ranch

Matt Giaraffa – Head engineer at Guerrilla Gravity

Kelley Smith – Founder at Kokopelli Packraft

Michael Stocker – Founder of Snowvation

Moderator: Chuck Sullivan – Something Independent (S|I)

Special thanks to all of our sponsors: Mountain Khakis, MKR Communications, WC Johnson, LLC and Ratio Beerworks.
