2022 Big Gear Show Update

-

- Advertisment -

It’s back. The Big Gear Show, which held its inaugural trade event at Park City, Utah’s Deer Valley Resort in August, will hold its second show there Aug. 2-3, 2022, according to organizers. Next year’s show will also feature a two-day format rather than three shorter days, which organizers said 2021 attendees requested after poling participants.

New Mid-mountain Area

In another change, in 2022 the event will also have use of Deer Valley Resort’s mid-mountain area, reachable by chairlift, for biking and other demos. The mid-mountain area has been the venue before for several bike brand dealer camps and other events. The show also will use the Silver Lake Lodge at mid-mountain for indoor events. The show also will continue to the lower-level parking lot area for some exhibitors, and the nearby ponds for paddlesport demos, which proved popular during the inaugural event.

With COVID protocols hopefully continuing to loosen by then, as well as its all-outdoors format, organizers are predicting a larger event in 2022, with as many as 1,000 retail buyers and 500 brands. The 2021 event had about 200 brands, including bike, outdoor and paddlesport vendors.
