GS Media & Events, promoters of multidealer RV and outdoor lifestyle shows, today announced it will host a new product expo preceding their upcoming Buy! Buy! Derby RV Sale in September.
According to a press release, the product expo offers vendors, entrepreneurs and suppliers of innovative and new products to the RV and outdoor lifestyle market, including hunting, fishing and marine categories. The expos affords vendors the opportunity to present their products to a team of merchandise buyers and for their products to possibly be offered at over 200 Camping World and Gander Outdoors retail stores nationwide.
“The objective of our product expo is to create an efficient environment for vendors and suppliers to meet and communicate with our buyers,” said Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors. “As we continue to grow our company throughout the United States, we are also growing our product offering and increasing our focus on finding fantastic innovative and unique products that our customers will love.”
Held at the Arlington International Racecourse in Arlington Heights, Ill., the expo kicks off Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and continues on Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. to noon. Merchandise buyers will be on-site to explore the trends and new product opportunities being offered by established and emerging vendors. Selected product ideas will be reviewed for innovation, growth potential, design, and readiness to go-to-market.
The product expo is free and open to all vendors, including close-out products, suppliers and manufacturers that have registered to attend. Space is limited and available by appointment only.
