Event description

Description

The Gateway Outdoor Summit is our region’s opportunity to celebrate what we’ve already achieved in outdoor recreation, imagine what’s possible and begin the conversation to building a truly exciting outdoor culture and economy here. The event will bring together leaders from around the country and locally who are building community…outdoors.

This forward-looking event is part of an expanded Mississippi Valley Bike + Outdoor Expo weekend.

The keynote speaker will be St. Louis native Luis Benitez, director of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office. Benitez, who has climbed Mount Everest six times, serves as an advocate for Colorado’s bustling outdoor industry, which includes not only the country’s most trafficked ski resorts but a growing number of outdoor businesses.

A preliminary list of sessions to be held at the Gateway Outdoor Summit include:
 Why Outdoor Recreation? – A panel of experts discusses the many advantages of an active
outdoor culture, some obvious and others surprising
 The Game Changers – A look at communities around the country that are altering the outdoor recreation paradigm and how they are benefitting
 Elevating Access for All – Everybody should be able to enjoy the outdoors, no matter their race,
gender, mobility or skill level
 Craft Beer Visioning Session – A facilitated workshop for turning regional outdoor recreation
opportunities into action, with craft beer!
 Keynote Address - Luis Benitez, director of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office

Registration will be required for event, which will be free for those wishing to attend and become part of our region’s outdoor success story. Stay tuned for more information soon!
