Midwest Outdoor Experience visitors are your customers.
Dayton is located within a two hour drive of over 14,000,000 people in Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, Louisville, Lexington, Huntington (WV) and Indianapolis. Our Miami Valley region is emerging as a destination for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy adventure activities such as kayaking, cycling, backpacking, fly fishing, mountain biking, disc golf and rock climbing. These opportunities, as well as the culture created by our dedicated hometown outdoor enthusiasts, are part of the reason why we are known as “The Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest."
Presented by Five Rivers MetroParks, Midwest Outdoor Experience (formerly known as GearFest) is a celebration of outdoor lifestyle and is instrumental in bringing the outdoor community together each fall with a focus on outdoor culture, competitions, live music, camping, youth activities, gear, demos, active opportunities and more!
Because of Dayton Ohio's location, this event offers access to regional markets through aggressive advertising, grass roots marketing through clubs and associations, regional special events and trend-setting adventure facilities. In addition, efforts are made to hit the most popular social media websites using innovative marketing techniques.
We are seeking sponsorship from organizations that are committed to promoting a healthy and adventurous lifestyle. Our mission is to make Dayton, OH and the surrounding region a more vibrant place to live, work and play. Midwest Outdoor Experience annually inspires enthusiasts to Get Out and Live!
