4th Annual Outdoor Economy Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The audience for the Outdoor Economy Conference represents every part of the outdoor economy and its value chain, with the event selling out every year of in-person operations. This conference will convene this broad range of stakeholders, build shared understanding and analysis, and catalyze meaningful action to ensure a sustainable and vibrant future for the outdoor economy here in WNC and across the country.

In 2019, our most recent in-person event, 540 attendees came from 20 US states and 40 NC counties, including representatives from every county in Western NC. 2020 saw attendees from 32 US states and 5 countries on 4 continents. 2021 is poised to be even bigger, drawing people from across North Carolina, the US, and beyond.
