The 2019 Outdoor Retailer Australia Show was held on 14-16 July 2019 at the Flemington Exhibition Pavilion at the Melbourne Showgrounds. This annual show is a chance for Australia’s outdoor wholesalers and manufacturers to showcase their new and existing products to Australia’s outdoor retailers and allied media. This is the third year Australian Hiker has attended this ‘trade only show’ as a media representative.
This year was our biggest yet and we recorded 13 separate interviews over 2.5 days of the exhibition with the first seven of these interviews contained in this episode. The remainder will be in episode 115 to be released in the following week.
From our discussions with the various suppliers at the show, we will be undertaking a number of gear reviews over the upcoming year that will be of interest to you.
