In January 2016, we sent our community and social media coordinator, Katie Bouéout on the road to visit member companies, host networking happy hours and document outdoor industry culture across the country. The beta roadshow visited Asheville, Chattanooga, and Buena Vista–and in June 2016, we’re taking things to the next level with the #OIAroadshow West Coast Tour. We’ve partnered with Campervan North America to explore the country in a retrofitted van built for adventure. 

Over two dozen cities, ve happy hours, and 6,000 miles of road travel.
