Outside Adventure Expo™ announces a partnership with Visit Salt Lake and the Utah Office Of Outdoor Recreation for the June 25-27, 2021 event to take place at Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City. The event is expected to draw more than 200 exhibitors and 15,000 attendees to Fairpark for three days of gear vendors, outdoor demos, education, and inspirational speakers and films.
Event producers strategically chose Utah to host Outside Adventure Expo because of the state’s vast natural assets that have attracted outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world.
“Salt Lake is a gateway for adventure of all types and the ideal basecamp,” commented Kaitlin Eskelson, President & CEO of Visit Salt Lake. “Partnerships with events like Outside Adventure Expo help us showcase the area’s adventure destinations to attendees from all over the country. Plus, Salt Lake is an incredible fit for an event that brings together the regional outdoor and active lifestyle communities to get geared up for their summer adventures.”
Visiting attendees are encouraged to use Visit Salt Lake’s Connect Pass program which offers discounts of up to 50-80% off at area attractions.
In partnership with the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation, Outside Adventure Expo will highlight Utah’s vast outdoor attractions, promote outdoor sustainability, and teach ethics of responsible adventuring as part of the weekend’s education and workshop series. The state of Utah boasts 34 million acres of public land, five National Parks, 44 State Parks, 15 ski resorts, thousands of miles of world class mountain bike and hiking trails and so much more.
“Whether you are looking to explore the high mountain peaks or the expansive deserts, Utah has it all,” said Pitt Grewe, Director, Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation. “For that reason, the Outside Adventure Expo will be a perfect fit here in Utah. We are excited to have people unite here in Salt Lake City to learn how to adventure responsibly at this great event.”
