Exhibitor InfoOfficial Press Release

Near Zero Outdoor Gear to Exhibit at 2023 Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit

The Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit is proud to announce that Near Zero Outdoor Gear has signed on as an exhibitor for the 2023 outdoor event taking place at the Findlay Toyota Center and surrounding grounds in Prescott Valley.  The only thing better than Near Zero’s lightweight outdoor products is their story.

Near Zero’s creation stems from a love for the outdoors of company founder Scott Jensen and his fond memories of spending countless nights under the stars as a Boy Scout, as well as adventuring with his father and five brothers. An avid outdoorsman and backpacker, his father Dean, was known to religiously weigh each piece of equipment before an outing and to hike a mile from his home for impromptu overnighters in the Arizona desert, just to test out new gear.  For years, Scott and Dean dreamed of starting their own outdoor gear company. Then in June 2018, Dean unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack. After his passing, that dream became Scott’s passion, and Near Zero was born.

As Scott’s business and product line grew, he realized making lightweight, quality equipment that could unlock access to the outdoors for anyone willing to strap on a pack was paramount.  He made sure his tents were constructed with the highest quality fabrics and designed them so you could see unobstructed views and the night stars. Sleeping bags and camping accessories all had to pass the test his father would have put them through.

Then, in 2022 Scott introduced Near Zero’s newest backpack. THE DEAN backpacking system not only honors his father’s legacy, it inspires confidence in those seeking a respite from nature. It empowers and encourages everyone to get outside and experience the magnificence and simplicity of the great outdoors. Just like Dean did.

Near Zero’s gear is so lightweight that getting far into nature has never been easier. From independent toddlers to adventurous retirees and everyone in between, no one should be sidelined from getting into nature.

The 2023 Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit will have 3 separate outdoor dirt tracks. Motorcycle, Rock Crawl and Mountain Bike.


Fain Family Foundation

“We are excited to share this news with our sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees. This development, in part, is in response to the fantastic turnout we had at our inaugural 2022 Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit with the off-road motorcycle community and the Prescott Trail Riders.  It is also because we have listened to a lot of feedback from attendees and exhibitors.  Additionally, we have condensed the area of the overall event into a tighter space to enhance the experience of both the attendees and exhibitors.  It goes without saying we are also happy to announce that the Prescott Trail Riders booth will be back this year at the event. It is our goal to build an annual regional event that provides space for all outdoor activities in central Arizona.


Prescott Valley is the perfect place to have this event as the Town is central to so many camping, off-road and tourist destinations. Prescott Valley is truly the center of adventure in central Arizona. None of this would happen without our sponsors, exhibitors, and the significant, ongoing investment made by the Fain Family Foundation of Prescott Valley to stimulate economic development, tourism, and an enhanced quality of life for all the residents of the region.” – Guy Roginson, Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit.
