Rendezvous - Outdoor Industry Association
OIA Rendezvous | September 26 - 28 | Denver, CO

The outdoor industry has always fought hard to keep the values that originated with the birth of our industry alive. Getting people outside, protecting the places where we recreate, competition and collaboration, creating innovative gear and building communities with a passion for the outdoors are all so important to us.

We're excited to bring the 2016 OIA Rendezvous to Colorado, home of OIA and a major hub for the outdoor industry and outdoor recreation.

2016 will bring about a new wave of change in America as a whole. We don't want the progress we've made or the voice that we've earned to be lost in this process. Now, more than ever, we must work together to ensure the continued growth and success of the outdoor industry - for most of us, a dedication pursued far beyond our work day and throughout our lives.

Community, Collaboration, Conversation - our outdoor industry, your 2016 OIA Rendezvous Experience.

2016 OIA Rendezvous Educational Tracks

Heathy Economy, Healthy Community, Healthy Business

This year's educational tracks provide quality content and interaction for all OIA members. Whatever your place in the industry, we need your voice. At Rendezvous we'll provide you with learning opportunities to make a difference in your business and community, helping contribute to a healthy outdoor economy.

  • Manufacturer

    Designing and building outdoor gear presents a variety of challenges. Sustaiability through smart supply chain management, trade and recreation policies, shifts in how your customers get outside: all have influence on your business. Rendezvous can help you in your efforts to keep your business healthy, while supporting a healthy outdoor economy.

  • Retailer

    Today’s outdoor specialty retailer does business in an increasingly complex environment. With little time to dedicate beyond the essentials of keeping the registers ringing, there’s little opportunity to explore new resources and ideas. Rendezvous provides a unique “one stop shop” that can change your approach to doing business forever.
