OIA Statement on Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Cancellation 2020 4.2.20
OIA supports the decision made by Emerald Expositions to cancel the Outdoor Retailer show this summer. While we will greatly miss the gathering of our outdoor community, it is the right thing to do for our industry, our partners and our larger community across the world. It is critical that we do our part to slow the spread of the virus and keep everyone as healthy as possible. The outdoor industry is best when we are working together for the greater good, and this moment in time is no different. From production of personal protective equipment for health care workers to advocacy of safe and responsible outdoor access, the industry is finding important ways to support the pandemic response.
We will work closely with the Outdoor Retailer team to support the industry with education and collaboration opportunities through the spring/summer 2021 selling season, and we look forward to coming together again in January. In the meantime, OIA continues to work hard with urgency to champion, support and protect the $887 billion outdoor recreation economy through collaboration with partners and action at the federal state and local levels. We have built many resources to support the industry at the OIA COVID-19 Resource Hub. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there are other things you need.
