(KSL News) -- Salt Lake City and County officials have put together a proposal to keep the Outdoor Retailer trade shows at the Salt Palace.

Convention & Visitors Bureau President Dianne Binger made the pitch to the trade show organizers in California yesterday, basically announcing an expansion plan that would begin this August. The city and county have already agreed to spend 10-million to get the expansion going.

Salt Lake will also pay the cost of erecting a temporary tent pavilion for vendors.

In return for the promises, Salt Lake wants a multi-year commitment from the outdoor show organizers. They'll make a decision later.

The trade shows are Salt Lake's biggest shows-- bringing in 32-million dollars to the local economy.
