Advocacy



Outdoor Retailer works with the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) and Snowsports Industries America (SIA) to provide a platform for the industry to gather and do business.

Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) ensures the growth and success of the outdoor industry. OIA is the leading trade association and voice of the outdoor recreation industry, serving more than 4,000 manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, sales reps and retailers.

The Outdoor Foundation is a not-for-profit established by Outdoor Industry Association to inspire and grow future generations of outdoor enthusiasts. Outdoor Retailer is pleased to support the efforts and initiatives, by adding a donation link to the Outdoor Retailer badge registration process. Every dollar you give goes directly to get youth outdoors. Improving lives. Improving our industry. Over the past five years, the Outdoor Foundation has invested $4 million into 500 not-for-profit projects and college programs, connecting nearly 200,000 young people with the outdoors.

SIA’s vision and purpose is to help the winter sports industry thrive and to get more people around the globe engaged in an active winter lifestyle. We will continue to lead the industry, support and enhance our member’s business and promote participation. We are the winter sports trade association and our benefits, research, retail support, education are beneficial to our members and the industry as a whole – we are moving forward proactively to engage, enhance and deliver the best ROI for our members and the industry.
