When more than 2,500 retailers and journalists need a rest at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer Open Air Demo, TravelChair, maker of the best-selling camping furniture in the industry, will be there to help. TravelChair has partnered with Outdoor Retailer to be recognized as the Official Camp Chair Provider of OAD. Additionally, the company will exhibit at the OAD for the first time this year, increasing the presence it’s had on the main show floor of Outdoor Retailer since the early nineties.

OAD is a one-day, hands-on event scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, 2015. This interactive demo day kicks off the four-day Outdoor Retailer Summer Market tradeshow. Outdoor Retailer is the outdoor industry’s key annual event linking retailers and manufacturers of summer gear and accessories at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City from August 5-8, 2015.

“The Open Air Demo gives retailers and the media a unique opportunity to use products and gear that makes an outdoor adventure fun, safe, and comfortable,” said Marisa Nicholson, vice president and Outdoor Retailer show director. “When retailers have the chance to better understand the benefits and features of the products they carry, it gives them a competitive advantage in selling to interested consumers.”

The overnighter, an invite-only event for retailers, features luxury tent camping, games, music, barbeque, and a campfire. Guests will be comfortable around the fire in TravelChair’s Joey and Roo chairs.

“The Open Air Demo aligns really well with our objectives, and those of retailers as well,” explained TravelChair Vice President of Sales and Marketing Daniel Roso. “When people sit in our chairs, they notice and appreciate the comfort and quality. We’re looking forward to helping retailers feel a little more comfortable at OAD, and helping them help their customers feel comfortable outdoors.”

As part of the Official Camp Chair Provider of OAD designation, TravelChair will set up 70 of its Joey chairs and 12 TravelBenches in The Chill Zone beer garden where show goers will be able to kick back and relax after trying out 2016 summer products.

In addition to providing a place to sit during the OAD, several of TravelChair’s TravelBenches will be placed at Outdoor Retailer’s downtown Salt Lake City shuttle bus stops, so retailers can rest their feet after a day of walking the show floor.

Show attendees can see TravelChair’s full product line at the OAD in booth #D200 and on the Outdoor Retailer show floor in booth #32039. For more information about TravelChair, go to

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
