About the Conference

The Outdoor Professional Conference strives to empower participant facing outdoor recreation and education providers and facilitators by:

  • expanding collaboration between the outdoor industry and outdoor recreation and education

  • offering high quality educational opportunities

  • building and strengthening professional skills and knowledge

  • broadening networking opportunities

  • educating on advocacy and public policy efforts within the industry

  • amplifying the value and impact of outdoor recreation

Why Co-Locating with the AB Show?

We are here to serve our members. As we have watched our membership change and grow over the years, we have taken note of how we can best support you. This partnership will give our members access to the same great networking opportunities and education you all know and love — but also expand opportunities with leadership and management. This will give you the opportunity to learn how to grow yourself - and the business of getting outside! Talking about ourselves, to ourselves is not going to advance our work — it is time to spread our wings and fly!

We will be joining a 40 year conference with over 2,300 facility and program managers from around the world. These decision-makers come to the AB Show every year to learn new solutions from industry leaders, find new products and services and build community.
