  • Cascade Designs
  • Thule Group
  • adidas Outdoor—“After a considerable amount of thought we have determined that the best approach for our company to help organize and fight for our public lands is to continue to support the upcoming Summer OR Show in SLC. It is extremely upsetting to watch the Utah legislature work to reverse the protection of the Bears Ears National Monument and the growing attacks on public land. We would like to make our voices heard, we are a strong supporter of the OIA and the Outdoor Retailer Show, and look forward to working with our united outdoor industry to  help organize and participate in demonstrating our concerns in Salt Lake City in July.” – Greg Thomsen, Managing Director
