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.

By coming together, we have become a really strong voice in the development of the Government’s new sporting strategy.
Greg Mulholland MP
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.
The OIA’s annual conference has quickly developed into an essential event on the trade calendar. The international speakers, workshops and networking elements are all of the highest standard and the social side of the conference is also really fun!
It feels now that we are talking about some bigger industry issues at Governmental level and actually getting access, which is rather special.
If we get more people active outdoors, we will fundamentally change the lives of people in Great Britain.
