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.
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!
We talk to each other. We discuss the issues. Genuinely, relationships get built and actions happen and I think that’s to the credit of the OIA for bringing that together.
It feels now that we are talking about some bigger industry issues at Governmental level and actually getting access, which is rather special.
