The Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) CIC is the trade body for manufacturers, retailers and other organisations that provide products and services for the outdoor leisure pursuits market in the United Kingdom.
Our role is to provide leadership and promote the outdoors, persuasively representing the industry’s interests in all activities and at every level and be a high profile, campaigning organisation. We are a membership organisation, so if you or your organisation operates in the outdoors, you can find out more about the benefits of joining up here.

Congratulations on an extremely well-run conference. I personally thought that the venue was fantastic, and the morning’s keynote speakers on Tuesday of the highest caliber. Thanks as well for allowing OSV the opportunity to present the French market to OIA UK members.
We talk to each other. We discuss the issues. Genuinely, relationships get built and actions happen and I think that’s to the credit of the OIA for bringing that together.

The OIA has become a strong voice and a respected player in the whole agenda of health, well-being and inclusion. It’s great that the OIA is now seen as a voice that needs to be listened to as part of all those agendas.
It feels now that we are talking about some bigger industry issues at Governmental level and actually getting access, which is rather special.
Over the last few years the OIA has grown into one of the most successful National Outdoor Trade Associations in the world. Their policy of concentrating on the really important issues that face the UK industry has been incredibly successful and really demonstrates the vital role that such organisations can play. The EOG is fully supportive of the OIA’s mission and we’ve had the privilege of working closely with the OIA team on both UK, and European wide issues. Irrespective of the current turmoil surrounding the UK’s wish to exit from the European Union, the OIA will continue to be a valuable, core part of the European outdoor industry business.
