360 Adventure Collective, a member association that brings focused, regional events to sales reps and retailers, has secured dates for its 2022 Southeast Paddlesports Experience at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The event, which will take place September 13-14, provides a trade show experience for its attendees by using the amenities offered at the world-class whitewater facility.
The inaugural Paddlesports Experience, which took place in August, was a success. Buyers and distributors appreciated the central location and accessibility that Charlotte provided. Attendees noted the conveniences the U.S. National Whitewater Center delivered, which allowed buyers to transition from a discussion of new products to testing them immediately.
“We are really happy with the turnout and the feedback we received for our first Southeast Paddlesports Experience,” said 360 Adventure Collective’s Executive Director Stacey Gellert. “We really listen to our members and work to create an event that is a beneficial experience that utilizes their time efficiently, and the Whitewater Center is the perfect space to make that possible.”
The U.S. National Whitewater Center is a 1,300-acre facility that offers more than 30 land and water-based activities, over 50 miles of trails and class II-IV rapids on the world’s largest man-made, recirculating whitewater river.
Holding the Southeast Paddlesports Experience there reflects the collective’s mantra of ‘see it, try it, buy it’ that has been successful at its On-Snow Demos during the winter months.
360 Adventure Collective has three remaining events on the 2021 calendar, including the Southeast Winter Expo on November 16-19 in Greenville, Souoth Carolina; Alabama Winter Expo on December 1-2 in Montgomery; and the New England Winter Market on December 6-9 in Worcester, Massachusettes. Registration for these events is open. To learn more about 360 Adventure Collective, visi https://360adventurecollective.org/.
