Can Outdoor Retailer Make A Comeback? An Interview With OR Show Director Sean Smith

A couple of weeks back right here on THE ROCK FIGHT (an outdoor podcast that aims for the head) Colin posited that it was last rites time for Outdoor Retailer and vowed not to talk about the long running outdoor industry trade show again unless something newsworthy happened.

You can listen to that episode by clicking here.

Not long after that Colin's phone rang with an offer to bring Show Director of Outdoor Retailer, Sean Smith, on to THE ROCK FIGHT to chat about the state of the show, what the show should actually is and what needs to happen for the show to return to its former glory. Newsworthy indeed.

And that is the interview you are about to listen to as today Sean Smith is on to THE ROCK FIGHT to huck a few stones of his own.
