While at the Network & Nosh event, attendees can learn about the OIWC and the services it offers to members of the outdoor, bike, and snowsports industries.

We are excited to host our first event in the adventure travel industry and to offer our services to women in this expanding field,” states OIWC Executive Director, Sally Grimes. “We thank the Adventure Travel Trade Association for welcoming us.”
