Matt sits down with Noah Wilson to talk about the upcoming 2019 Outdoor Economy Conference, being held on October 10th at Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts in Asheville, NC. They also discuss, at length, the growth of the outdoor economy. Everything from gear manufacturers to research to experiential businesses, and what makes them grow.
The Outdoor Economy Conference is the Southeast’s premier event for those looking to grow the outdoor industry in their communities and craft an economy that's intimately tied to the quality and health of their places.
The conference will include both national and local outdoor industry speakers and media, CEOs and other leaders from top outdoor brands, and renowned experts in the fields of outdoor recreation infrastructure, building strong workforce programs and supply chains, and branding + building outdoor communities.
With a mix of can't-miss shared sessions and high-engagement breakouts, as well as some special outdoor events and gourmet food and beverages throughout the morning and afternoon, this will truly be a spectacular day.
NOTE: Also there will be an Outdoor Biz Pitch competition at New Belgium Brewing on Oct 9th (that event is only $15!).
