Welcome to Colorado, OR!

On July 6th, 2017, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, along with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and leaders from across the $28 billion Colorado outdoor recreation industry announced the the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow is moving to Colorado.

CO Active, a trade association of Colorado manufacturers in the outdoor lifestyle industry, applauds the arrival of Outdoor Retailer to Colorado. The CO Active board of directors has been supportive of the trade show coming to Colorado since the announcement of Outdoor Retailer’s intention to move out of Utah.

Places like Browns Canyon National Monument, the Great Sand Dunes and our 58 Fourteeners have long made Colorado an outdoor recreation haven. Our public lands have also made Colorado a hub for innovative manufacturers who are making products that stand up to the tests of Colorado’s outdoors. Outdoor Retailer coming to Colorado provides increased opportunities for these companies to highlight their products and their local communities.

CO Active looks forward to continuing to help grow communities and economies across the state that thrive on a healthy outdoor recreation economy.
