We Represent the Outdoor Industries…
We joined OIA following the outstanding OIA conference, which was one of those events that anyone with any interest in the outdoor industry would want to attend and be part of. We were enormously impressed by the vibrancy and atmosphere.

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 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.
By coming together, we have become a really strong voice in the development of the Government’s new sporting strategy.
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.
