LOS ANGELES — Outdoor apparel brands are laying the groundwork today for a more lucrative tomorrow.
Brand owners and representatives heading to the Outdoor Retailer show should be in a relatively upbeat mood with apparel sales in the outdoor sector rising about 10 percent last year from the year before, according to data provided by Outdoor Industry Association VantagePoint. The Outdoor Retailer trade show is expected to draw 22,000 attendees and 900 to 950 vendors to the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City from Wednesday to Jan. 25.
