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.
By coming together, we have become a really strong voice in the development of the Government’s new sporting strategy.
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.
The industry is not just about the big guys, we need to represent the rank and file of our industry because the independent retailer is absolutely essential for the survival of our business.
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.
