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.
It feels now that we are talking about some bigger industry issues at Governmental level and actually getting access, which is rather special.
JD Outdoor are proud to sit on the board of the OIA – we invest time and resource into it and believe it helps pull the industry together and speak with a louder voice than even JD Outdoor Group could alone. We encourage our suppliers to give something back and support the work the OIA does for the industry.
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!
If we get more people active outdoors, we will fundamentally change the lives of people in Great Britain.
