BETHESDA, Maryland – Attendees bringing their kids to this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show in Salt Lake City will be able to cart the little ones around in style, thanks to a generous offer by Piggyback Rider®. Loaner models of the award-winning Piggyback Rider, an innovative and new style of child carrier for toddlers, will be available at Piggyback Rider’s booth (PV313) for daily use throughout the show being held August 1-5 at the Salt Palace Convention Center.

“We invite everybody attending the show with their kids to start their day with a visit to us in the New Product Pavilion,” said Wayne Lifshitz, co-inventor of the Piggyback Rider. “We had good success with the loaner program during Winter OR, and with the summer show bigger and more spread out, we expect even more families will take us up on the summer offer.”

Lifshitz said a limited number of Piggyback Riders will be available for free use each day of the show. Attendees simply need to stop by the Piggyback Rider booth in the pavilion tent and sign-out a demo model. The process will be quick and simple, but loaner models must be returned at the end of the day.

The Piggyback Rider is a mutually enjoyable, effortless way to carry a child (2½+ years) on your back. It functions like a backpack, utilizing a shoulder-mounted foot-bar to distribute the child’s weight at your core, enabling a more natural and upright walking posture. The child stands safely on the wide textured foot-bar, holding integrated shoulder handles and secured to the adult by a safety harness. Built from industry leading climbing components and over-engineered for safety, the Piggyback Rider is unlike any kid carrier you’ve ever seen.

Now two years on the market, The Piggyback Rider is quickly turning heads in both the parenting and outdoors markets. It was recently featured on Good Morning America, won the “Best New Product” award at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Show last year and has nabbed a number of parenting and family awards since then. Updated, more deluxe versions of the Piggyback Rider will be on display at Summer OR.
