Grassroots Outdoor Alliance Gears Up for November Connect Show
The specialty outdoor buying show Grassroots Connect will take place in Kansas City, MO, next month with more than 1,000 attendees expected, including more than 150 leading outdoor industry brands, an increase in retailer attendance, and two new discovery opportunities. The invitation-only buying show is hosted by specialty outdoor retail trade group Grassroots Outdoor Alliance.
Scheduled for Nov. 7-10, 2022, at the Kansas City Convention Center, Grassroots Connect’s retailer attendance is set to be 15% higher than its spring 2022 show, which exceeded pre-pandemic attendance levels, the group says. Of the more than 150 brands displaying at the show, 116 brands will be on the show floor and 38 will be participating in a new one-day Discovery Marketplace held the night before the show begins.
The Grassroots Connect schedule of events also includes membership meetings, social gatherings and education sessions, in addition to show hours.
