A Welcome Letter From Utah State Fair Corporation’s Executive Director

Dear Outside Adventure Expo Attendees, Presenters And Exhibitors,

As Executive Director of the Utah State Fair Corporation, it is my pleasure to warmly welcome Outside Adventure Expo to Salt Lake City, and to the Great State of Utah June 25-27, 2021.

During these unprecedented times, State leadership has done a phenomenal job balancing the need to keep the state’s economy open, while managing the safety of its residents and visitors. Early in the pandemic, vital safety measures were identified and quickly adopted by the business community. These safety measures have proven to be effective and will continue to be a part of our standard operating procedures for the foreseeable future. The safety of our guests and employees is our highest priority.

The Fairpark welcomed roughly 190,000 visitors in 2020 without a single case of transmission!

In addition, roughly 40% of the population has received their first dose of the vaccine while 28% of the population is fully vaccinated. Combine this with the little-known fact that Utah has the youngest population of any state in the nation, and it quickly becomes apparent what makes Utah an ideal location to host world-class events this summer.

Vendors will be greeted enthusiastically by guests wanting to learn more about the latest and greatest new products. And to add a few items to their inventory before their next epic outdoor journey.

Enjoy your stay in Utah, take time to visit one of our five national parks. Enjoy one of our outstanding local restaurants, Enjoy fine dining at its best at Valter’s Osteria Restaurant downtown. Or visit our favorite – the Red Iguana Mexican restaurant – less than four blocks from the Fairpark. Visit one of our many brewpubs and or local distilleries, or popular nightspots.

Welcome to Utah and enjoy your stay!

Larry R. Mullenax
