We’ve assembled more than 20 best-in-class vendor partners to offer OIA special preferred pricing on goods and services that you would likely be contracting for anyway.

In addition, we continue all of our work in the areas of Sustainable Business Innovation, Public Policy and Participation.


  • Events and Education: OIA continues to look for new ways to deliver valuable education to fit the needs of retailers, reps and manufacturers in the outdoor industry. In 2017, we are partnering with the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, Outdoor Retailer, BrandLive, Regional Rep Associations, NPD and a host of expert speakers and panelist, to deliver pertinent and timely education and information to all aspects of the industry.
  • Sponsorships: OIA promotes 13 events throughout the year, focusing on our three pillars of Sustainable Business Innovation, Public Policy, and Participation. There are multiple ways to promote your brand and support your own initiatives, while partnering with OIA, to amplify our voices in support of causes important to us all.
  • Partnerships: We have many long-standing partnerships that offer our members exclusive discounts and business savings. And in 2017, we’ll be introducing many more unique partnerships. Click here to see a list.
