Dealer Camp 2011 - Day 1

The 2011 Dealer Camp started today at the Deer Valley Resort just outside Park City, Utah and we were there to capture some images from this fast growing event.

Last year around 60 vendors displayed products to dealers and media at this beautiful venue but for 2011 the Dealer Camp has attracted around 220 exhibitors. Many of the bike companies brought in demo fleets so the dealers have a chance to try out the product before they fill out the order sheet.

The setting is quite beautiful at the Deer Valley Resort.
