“The outdoor industry is like being on a team that you didn’t know you were on.”

DAVE DRAGOO
COLORADO OUTDOORS

Welcome to the Outdoor Industry Summit—Outdoor Products Series!

Our goal is to bring together decision-makers and problem solvers in the outdoor manufacturing industry to talk about the opportunities available in rural development. We will be highlighting companies and creators on the Western Slope of Colorado—but other regions and states are welcome!

  • Learn from people who have actually done it!
  • Bring together product creators, company founders, funders, and developers
  • Share both pragmatic production concepts and visionary leadership ideals 

Finally, we will offer plenty of networking opportunities—through receptions, breakout sessions, and a major town hall meeting—to help you tap into the best kept secrets of production in our rural region. We understand that the vast majority of entrepreneurs in the outdoor products industry are entering the field because they are passionate about their outdoor pursuits. Our goal is to help you merge your company and personal missions to create a dynamic professional life.
