(KSL News) -- It looked like a huge sporting goods store at Willard Bay today.

The open-air demo is part of the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Convention. The indoor show gets underway tomorrow, but for the last two days, hundreds of retailers and manufacturers got to see and get their hands on the newest products, in the environment in which they will be used.

Andy Thunnel, Buyer: "When you're out here, you actually get to see how it performs. Whereas, in the store, you can only imagine how it performs on the water. It's pretty unreal. It's a good day out here!"

The open-air demo has always been a one day event, prior to both the winter and summer Outdoor Retail Conventions, but it's gotten so popular, organizers expanded it to two days this year.
