Delegate booking for OIAs 2019 Conference and AGM are open

Delegate bookings for the Outdoor Industries Association’s (OIA) annual Conference and AGM are now open.

During the two-day event, there will be influential keynote speakers in key areas that impact the outdoor industry, while having the opportunity to network with colleagues from a variety of organisations. There will also be the chance to take part in a series of educational breakout sessions and outdoor activities.

Next year’s event will take place on March 13-14, 2019, at Shrigley Hall Hotel in Cheshire. This fantastic venue nestled on the edge of The Peak District worked extremely well for 2018, with its combined hotel and conference facilities, and close transport links.

The OIA are currently building an exciting and diverse range of speakers for the conference and have so far secured an outstanding line up to deliver keynote presentations over the two days.

They include:

Liz McMahon, Madison Muir Trust: Is Your Brand Your Brand? Brand management in this fake news and social media world
