Big Rock Sees Record Turnout and Excitement in Minnesota

GRAHAM, NC—Big Rock Sports concluded its 2018 Outdoor Expo in St. Cloud, MN, with record attendance and tons of highlights to report from the Rivers Edge Convention Center. The event kicked off on September 18 and by the time doors closed on Thursday, September 19, there was lots of talk about this show and the upcoming national Outdoor Expo in Nashville. 

“The Hot Profit event here was one of the liveliest we’ve experienced in years. Many thanks are owed to our merchant team for negotiating some phenomenal deals and we are very eager to continuing to wow our customers with fresh new Hot Profit deals at our Nashville Outdoor Expo this January,” explained Big Rock’s Vice President of Merchandising Bob Hunter.

Notable products that shined include Lindy’s new Glow Spoon and Humminbird’s Helix ICE 5 and 7. “Ice fishing products flew out the door, thanks to these releases, as well as a strong finish to the previous season,” said Hunter.

Now that the St. Cloud Outdoor Expo has passed, Big Rock Sports will turn its full attention to bringing vendors and retailers from all over to Nashville’s Music City Convention Center, where Big Rock’s first-ever national show will take place in January. Even in St. Cloud, vendors and retailers shared their excitement for Nashville. More information about the upcoming show can be found at
