Action Outdoor & Bike Expo is being organised by a new mag, of the same name, in Atlantic City, 22-23 August 2012

US gets new outdoor/bike trade show and mag

New trade magazine Action Outdoor & Bike – the first issue is out now – is to stage the Action Outdoor & Bike Expo,
August 22–23, 2012, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Like the magazine, the trade show is multi-sport: bike, kayak, ski, backbacking, snow boarding and other outdoor sports.

The magazine and show are owned by National Business Media.

NBM said: "The action, outdoor and bike markets are evolving and retailers are looking for a broader range of product for their stores. The Action Outdoor & Bike Expo brings three intersecting markets together in one venue to create the ultimate buying environment. Retailers will have the convenience to meet with vendors and see product they may be considering from outside their shop’s current stock."

NBM produces a trade show for the engraving, printwear and digital graphics markets.
