“I have been utilizing the WWSRA regional shows for as long as I’ve been a store owner….25 years!! I literally get excited to go! Not only is their staff incredibly organized, knowledgeable, and great to work with, but they bring in the best vendors of the outdoor industry. This makes my job of buying simple, fruitful, and completely enjoyable. Thanks WWSRA for all you do… You are phenomenal!”
“WWSRA is where we go to do virtually all the buying for all of the product to fill our three stores, year-round. The thing that makes this so awesome for us is that all of our stores are different. One specializes in backpacking & rock climbing, another store is a summer & winter rental/resort destination, and the third is a men's & women's lifestyle apparel & footwear shop. Each show is conveniently located with affordable lodging and eating. We can't imagine our business life without WWSRA!”
“WWSRA shows are simply the best, most productive time of the year. They bring together brands, reps and customers in a low key, business oriented setting where people can actually get the work done that needs to get done. Without WWSRA facilitating these gatherings it would take 3x as long for 2x the money.”
“WWSRA has provided a crucial platform for my business for nearly 20 years now. From my initial sub-repping days getting to know all of the Pacific Northwest reps and agencies through my current management of my own agency we have grown together. We continue to get the better part of our business done at these shows and on-snow events. We truly value the productivity that takes place during these shows and appreciate our dealers that take advantage of the time and costs that we put into them.”
“My agency NW Roadreps has had great support from WWSRA to build shows that are the best for us and our retailers, creating an ideal selling environment conducive for everyone. I see these shows becoming more important as a channel to connect with ALL of our retailers and I see us growing with the regional shows as the national show value continues to be debated and less attended by specialty retail. WWSRA is a massive network of reps and brands, but a small community that is focused on our retailers and building with them.”
“The WWSRA crew is the best! The WWSRA team are true ‘cat wranglers’. There is no way on earth that a group of 50+ reps could communicate together to settle on a date and location for the indoor shows and on-snow demos we need to offer to our retail partners. WWSRA does a fabulous job of being the vehicle to our success as sales reps. I thank them for their time and efforts! Without the efforts of WWSRA, we as reps would be on the road and away from our families, more than we are already.”
