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!
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 most important aspect of this work (OIA) is the impact it could have on the health of the nation. It could engage people to take part in outdoor activity, including people who might never go to the gym or walk on a football pitch but who will happily go to the park or walk up a mountain.
If we get more people active outdoors, we will fundamentally change the lives of people in Great Britain.
The Forestry Commission are an active provider of multiple outdoor recreation projects to increase community participation in outdoor activity – from mountain bike trail centres to guided trail runs, from competitive adventure races to the family Gruffalo trails – we are certain much of our work contributes to the OIA’s mission to ‘Get Britain Active Outdoors’ . The OIA provides great opportunities for us to meet industry colleagues and learn from others. This is why we are members of the OIA, attend the OIA conferences and seminars, and enjoy working together on research and participation development.
