OIA CEO Andrew Denton said: “Despite an excellent line up of quality guest speakers and workshops, together with initial interest and support from the trade, only a minimum number of bookings have been secured, even with everyone’s best efforts to promote the event. We have therefore made the decision to cancel OFC for this year.”
Despite this setback, the OIA firmly believes it is still vital for the trade to invest in training outdoor recreation industry leaders of the future. More research and an extensive survey will be conducted to find out how the association can best react to the wishes of its membership.
Delegates who have registered to attend the event will be contacted and issued a full refund.
