PHOTO RECAP: The Shmooz at Outdoor Retailer 2016

August 8, 2016

The Shmooz at Outdoor Retailer went down this past Friday in Salt Lake City, UT, and with 28 participating brands it was by far our biggest and best one yet!  Eager attendees from all over the country showed up to network and discuss current and future job opportunities with some of the outdoor industry’s top companies.  New connections were made, old ones were rekindled, and a good and productive time was had by all.  Scroll through our photo gallery to see some of the highlights!
