The very first event of The Big Gear Show (BGS), a new U.S. outdoor industry trade show with an emphasis on paddling, cycling, climbing, and camping gear, originally planned for July 22-25 in Salt Lake City, has been postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 public health crisis to August 3-5, 2021. The management of the show said it is confident that the model, which offers a hardgoods-focused, low-cost, retailer-centric show with a strong demo opportunity, will be even more necessary in 2021, as brands and manufacturers take a hard look at their marketing budgets and finances. Responsible for creating the new show is Lance Camisasca, former show director of Interbike, together with the former show directors of Outdoor Retailer, Kenji Haroutunian, and Paddlesports Retailer, Charles Conner.
