The Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) is offering a discounted rate for its 2018 Conference & AGM on all bookings received before 20th January. This year’s conference is to take place on 14th and 15th March at Shrigley Hall Hotel in Cheshire.

With workshops still to be announced, keynote speakers confirmed so far include:


  • Amazon UK Country Manager, Doug Gurr

  • Patagonia General Manager (EMEA), Ryan Gellert

  • Liz McMahon, Managing Director of the Madison Muir Group and former Head of International Marketing for the London 2012 Olympic bid

  • Professional climber Nick Bullock


OIA CEO Andrew Denton comments: “We’re providing a fantastic opportunity to hear from some incredibly stimulating speakers at this year’s conference, which will no doubt inspire everyone who attends to make things happen within their own business. There will also be a number of incredible networking opportunities, so anyone not attending is simply missing out.”

Sponsored by The Camping and Caravanning Club for the third year in a row, the event will see over 200 delegates gather together for two days of inspirational speakers, workshops, outdoor activities, and a series of networking opportunities, including the OIA’s annual gala dinner on Wednesday evening, during which the winners of the new UK Outdoor Industry Awards will be announced.
