Outdoor specialty retail organization Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, which canceled its spring and fall 2020 Connect buying shows this year due to COVID-related challenges, has confirmed fall show dates for the Connect buying show for next year through 2024.
Upcoming fall shows for Grassroots Connect will be held in the Kansas City Convention Center, with dates including Nov 8-11, 2021; Nov 7-10, 2022; Nov 6-9, 2023; and Nov 14-17, 2024. Spring shows will continue to be held at the Knoxville (Tennessee) Convention Center. Current confirmed dates for the spring shows include June 7-10, 2021; and June 6-9, 2022.
“Without a doubt, we’re all missing the efficiency, effectiveness, and personal connections created at Connect, and are eager for a season where it is both safe and smart for us to hold another gathering,” said Rich Hill, president of Grassroots Outdoor Alliance.
