360 Adventure Collective Leans into Roots at Southeast Summer Expo

360 Adventure Collective, a member association that has brought together focused, regional events for sales reps and retailers for more than 40 years, heads to Greenville, S.C., next month to be the host for the Southeast Summer Expo. The event, scheduled for June 20-23 at the Greenville Convention Center, anticipates more than 450 product lines, the largest selection on the east coast.

The organization’s emphasis on providing conveniently located, cost-effective expos and encouraging connections through an intimate, open booth format sets its smaller regional shows apart from the larger national alternatives. This year, 360 Adventure Collective leans heavily into its regional roots to ensure its expos have an even smaller, more intimate feel.

“More outdoor brands than ever are looking to regional trade shows to broaden their reach to local retailers,” said Stacey Gellert, executive director of 360 Adventure Collective. “In fact, we’re excited to welcome back signature outdoor brands such as Patagonia and The North Face for the first time in several years.”

A special 360 Adventure Collective vendor committee has come together to incorporate new, unique ways to add value to trade shows. The Southeast Summer Expo will include free registration online or on-site, a complimentary lunch buffet each day and on-site entertainment from a local band. Plus, the Greenville location offers easy access to great restaurants, lodging options and a vibrant downtown scene.

Prior to the Southeast Southern Expo, 360 Adventure Collective kicks off its trade show season with the Mid-Atlantic Summer Expo, June 14-16, at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison, N.J.

The association wraps up the month with the New England Summer Expo, June 21-23, at the DoubleTree Hotel Expo, Armory & Ballroom in Manchester, N.H.
