A Force For The Future
OUTDOOR INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
GRASSROOTS OUTDOOR ALLIANCE
Together, Amy and Rich represent outdoor industry collaboration at it’s core. Although their membership bases overlap and seem, in certain instances, to have competing interests, the two organizations collaborate to ensure that all retailers — large and small — have a seat at the tradeshow table. Specialty retail is a vital aspect of the outdoor industry, and Amy and Rich are fighting to maintain the balance between traditional brick-and-mortar shops, flagship chain stores and online retailers. In response to the industry’s changing landscape, Outdoor Industry Association, Grassroots Outdoor Alliance and Outdoor Retailer collaborated on a date change and colocation agreement for the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow in order to better align with shifting buying cycles. Amy and Rich strongly believe that our industry is built and dependent upon the continued collaboration among brands, suppliers and retailers, and they’re leading efforts to keep everyone at the table.
Alone we can each do something.
