Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC) joins forces with Adventure Travel Trade Association to present Women in Adventure Travel: Network & Nosh, an opportunity for women who work in the adventure travel industry to come together during the Adventure Travel World Summit.

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. Attendees will also enjoy this time to mingle with other women and discuss the unique experiences, opportunities and challenges of being a woman in the industry. Event sponsors, Contourwear and ExOfficio will host a raffle during the event.

“There is a deep and obvious intersection between the outdoor and adventure travel industries, and many of our members are active in both. 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.”

OIWC is an organization dedicated to the professional advancement of women within all facets of the outdoor, bike and snowsports industries.
