Outdoor Retailer 2012 Recap

The annual Outdoor Retailer summer tradeshow concluded earlier this month and it seems that only now we're able to come up for air.  The show was a cornicopia of the latest and greatest gear the industry has to offer and as usual the Gerber booth was alive with retail partners, buyers, media and friends.

Exhausting, yet exhilarating, the 2012 show will set the stage nicely for the coming year. Highlights from the event include:

The Gerber Shift multi-tool was featured in the new product gallery on opening day.


The premiere of the new Myth hunting video featuring outdoorsman and pro surfer Shane Dorian during a wild game themed happy hour.


And finally, more key trade press including this double header for the new Paraframe knife and co-branded Gerber Bear Grylls Grandfather Knife. 


All in all a great show – and a good jump on the next selling season. Here's to it!
