Sponsorship & Advertising

A brand that comes alongside AORE will receive 100% return on their investment — if not more! AORE members are looking to purchase equipment to outfit climbing walls, paddlesport liveries, rental centers, outdoor courses, and more. With these purchases, the participant will be influenced with brands they grow comfortable with and then invest in when outfitting themselves. And then of course our members purchase goods and equipment for themselves — they love to recreate! Through the programs our members deliver each year, AORE’s individual and organizational members serve over 1.5 million participants across the country

Brands who are actively engaged with our members via the Outdoor Professional Conference will develop powerful relationships and perspectives on issues that outdoor participants are experiencing. Get full access to user feedback to improve your product by joining AORE.

Seen and heard from our members...

  • We are starting an adaptive program here at [University] and we are looking for recommendations on gear.
  • I’m new to AORE and need opinions about gym ropes for our climbing wall
  • Looking at new harnesses, I wanted to hear what everyone else was using and how they liked them. I was specifically wondering about reliability, longevity, cost, and comfort.
  • I am currently doing research on possibly obtaining satellite beacons, messengers, and phones to use on our backcountry trips. I was wondering what practices other programs use for having trips communicating while in the backcountry, and what device you use for that communication.
