Luis Benitez and the Colorado Office of Outdoor Recreation invite you to join outdoor industry champions from across the state on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018 for the Colorado Outdoor Industry Leadership Summit (COILS). As we collectively strive to develop a flourishing recreation-based economy in Colorado, we seek to gather leaders from all over the state’s outdoor industry to help establish and execute our vision for the future.
CEOs, Colorado government officials, executive directors, entrepreneurs, students, and leaders from across the state that represent different cross-sections of the outdoor economy in Colorado. (Although not every person pushing forward the outdoor economy can be in attendance, note that we have a post-summit regional agenda that will involve anyone in the industry interested in our initiatives)
A day of networking, ideas and expert discussions that are designed to catalyze the action we need to elevate and sustain our flourishing outdoor ecosystem in Colorado. Topics include Economic Development, Conservation, Education/Workforce Training and Health and Wellness.
