Denver snowsports show draws nearly 19,000
Vail, CO, Colorado
SnowSports Industries America reported a six-year attendance high for the inaugural Snow Show held Jan. 28 – 31 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. The sold-out show attracted 18,932 attendees and featured more than 3,100 booths representing 845 snow sports brands, including 125 new exhibitors.
“Participating in the Snow Show exceeded our expectations. We were overwhelmed by the interest from retailers, distributors and the public. As a result of being featured in a local FOX 31 television report on the Snow Show a distributor came to us with a great opportunity,” Brett Curtis of Manic Snow said.
“For the first year in Denver, in the middle of a recession, we’re very happy with the attendance numbers. We were lighter in some regions but we hope they’ll come back next year after hearing all the positive experiences people had this year,” said David Ingemie, president of SIA.
