We're opening up the show to select outfitters, guides, schools, and people with a specialized product that is outdoor or paddlesports-related (no ginzu knives or Sham-wows, please). If you're interested, contact Darren at .

In addition to our annual favorites, we've gotten a ton of proposals from new speakers! We have closed the application process and are now wading through all these great proposals. If you have a question about speaking, you can contact Nancy.
