Spearfish, SD – July 30, 2018 – Recognizing the attraction of Spearfish’s strong economic advantages -as well the area’s outdoor recreation/active lifestyle appeal- Spearfish Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) has launched a strategic initiative to recruit additional outdoor product manufacturing companies to the community. As part of these efforts, SEDC Executive Director Kory Menken recently attended the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market tradeshow in Denver.
The Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is North America’s largest tradeshow in the outdoor industry drawing attendees from throughout the world, including over 600 exhibitors from a variety of industries including backpacking, camping, hiking, climbing, skiing, mountain biking and fly fishing. “This show provided SEDC with an outstanding opportunity to share the Spearfish story directly with key decision makers and influencers from the outdoor product manufacturing market,” said Menken. “Our participation was especially timely as Livability.com recently listed Spearfish as one of ‘The Best Home Base Cities for Adventure Enthusiasts.’”
