Last week, the Popticals team proudly attended our first Outdoor Retailer Summer Show in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah! What better place to show off the best sunglasses for sports? The bi-annual Outdoor Retailer shows take place every Summer and Winter and brings together the best and brightest of outdoor sports industry. An event this big could only be hosted at the larger-than-life Salt Palace Convention Center, located in downtown Salt Lake City where over hundreds of exhibitors set up across 679,000 square feet. We’re still not sure whether the inside or the outside was more impressive.
This year we had the pleasure of attending the event as a new product exhibitor. After hours of putting together the booth, setting up monitors, and grabbing lunch from the delicious food trucks outside, the Popticals team was ready to show the world’s first pop-out sunglasses.
When we asked Popticals President Tim Petsch if he could pop-out a pair of Popticals in under 6 seconds for a quick Vine video, his response was “6 seconds? I can probably do it in 4.” Here he is demonstrating how to take these athletic sunglasses from case to face in under 6 seconds (and look stylish doing it).
A big thank you to everyone who came out to the show and stopped by the Popticals booth. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Winter show in January! Also, special thanks to High Roller USA for letting us snap some photos of Popticals team members Ted and Preston on the new Higher Roller Adult Big Wheel!
