The Outdoor Retailer Winter Market reports stable attendance at its latest session in Salt Lake City. The organizers estimate a total of 22,000 attendees. More than 1,060 brands exhibited at the show, and 19 percent of the exhibitors were new to the fair. The business mood was not great, according to an observer, because of the high temperatures recorded in a large part of the country through Christmas, so many retailers cancelled orders and vendors scrambled to get rid of their inventories.
