Organisers of the Outdoor Retailer trade show have put an end to speculation about a potential change of venue by extending their contracts to remain in Salt Lake City through 2018.

Speculation during the latest event held earlier this month suggested the outdoor apparel show might move from Salt Lake City when the current contract expires at the end of next year.

Both Winter and Summer Market shows have been in Salt Lake City for over two decades, and organisers say a survey of retailer attendees and exhibitors indicated a significant preference for keeping the show there.

Future show dates for both Summer and Winter markets are now as follows:

  • Winter Market 2016 – 7-10 January
  • Summer Market 2016 – 3-6 August
  • Winter Market 2017 – 7-10 January
  • Summer Market 2017 – 26-29 July
  • Winter Market 2018 – 6-9 January
  • Summer Market 2018 – 25-28 July
