Altitude Sports officially announces its Marketplace, increasing their
presence as a one-stop-shop for technical outdoor and urban apparel. For
Fall 2019, the Marketplace will expand from offering Osprey & Garneau’s
collections to a total of 20 industry-leading brands.

The Marketplace is an innovative extension of the company’s eCommerce
platform. The Marketplace hosts partner companies’ entire product
collections on the Altitude Sports website. Altitude Sports processes
customer orders on the Marketplace while partner companies –

for our clients and partners. Our clients can tap into a much wider
selection of outdoor and urban products while enjoying our platforms

while seamlessly displaying their entire catalog to a highly receptive
audience. The Marketplace gets us one step closer to building an
ecosystem catering to all outdoor and urban clients’ aspirations.” –

“When we talk about our own Marketplace, it’s as exciting as
imagining discovering a new continent. It enables us to expand our
product catalog by increasing the number of available units at all
times. It also lets us envision new niches and markets. We look at the
Wayfair’s and Farfetch’s of the world, they give us the ambitious
blueprints to become the leading global marketplace in our industry.” –
