Industry Breakfast-Climate Change:
How Outdoor and Snowsports Can
Take Action
7:15-8:45 a.m., MR401
Kick off the Show with breakfast and
a discussion on climate change. The
impacts of climate change are more
and more evident each day. Through
the lenses of the outdoor and snowsports industries, it's clear we must
engage. Climate change is having a
direct impact on outdoor recreation.
The quality of outdoor experiences is
suffering as summers grow longer and
hotter, winter and snowpack become
more unpredictable, river flows are
diminished, and devastating natural

disasters occur more frequently. We
build products to enable more people
to get outside. It is our duty to make
sure that in sourcing, manufacturing,
and delivering these products, we do
everything possible to minimize their
impact on the environment. We must
take action and advocate on climate
policy at the state and federal levels,
while working together to address
our impacts and develop sustainable
supply chains and businesses. Doors
open at 7 a.m. Keynote speaker: Kate
Williams, CEO 1% For the Planet
Attendee Orientation

At Outdoor + Snow Show, senior editor Adam Ruggerio will be overseeing Live
Gear Awards at The Camp so you won't have to wait to know what's hot on
the show floor. As of now, Ruggerio has not fully sifted through what he will be
reviewing, but he is excited to check out the following: Picture Organic's Denim
Jacket, PrimaLoft P.U.R.E. (which will be debuting in the new Patagonia Nanopuff), Osprey's Soelden Pro & 32L avalanche packs, and Tecnica's Mach1 MV
130 TD ski boot. "As far as trends go," he says, "I think we are seeing a continuing
push to use more recycled and bio-based materials and lower impact production
processes (evidenced in the Picture Organic shell below), PrimaLoft P.U.R.E., and
lesser-known brand, Askov Finlayson's Climate-Positive Parka." Want to know

How Nature and Today's BeliefDriven Consumers are Influencing
Color Trends Throughout Design
for 2021/2022
10-11 a.m., Trend + Design Center
(5019-LL)
Color is a language. We use the
language of color to express who we
are, how we feel, and to symbolize
the message we want to send to the
world. With the environment and sustainability top of mind for so many, it
makes perfect sense that we turn to
nature for color inspiration and look
to celebrate nature's organic beauty
in our color stories for 2021/2022.
Speaker: Laurie Pressman, VP of the
Pantone Color Institute.
Intelligent Supply Chain Strategies for
Navigating the US-China Trade War
10-11 a.m., MR405
Outdoor industry companies have
paid nearly $2 billion in punitive
tariffs imposed by the Trump administration on products sourced
from China, with possibly more
tariffs to come. These taxes not only
mean higher costs for companies
and consumers, but they also result
in less innovation and job growth.
OIA is actively advocating for the
elimination of these punitive tariffs
in Washington, D.C., but companies
should also work to protect their
bottom lines by making adjustments
to their supply chains. Join us for
an in-depth discussion with key
experts on how outdoor companies
can help alleviate the impact of
the China tariffs through a holistic
"intelligent supply chain" approach
that encompasses both customs
and supply chain planning. Presenters: Amie Ahanchian, KPMG;
David Beale, KPMG. Moderator: Rich
Harper, OIA.
Social Support

moting a product. Utilizing the digital
landscape, we'll dive into the collaborative ways purpose-driven brands,
retailers, and influencers are tackling important issues in the outdoor
industry and explore how content
creators are enabling nonprofits to
rise to the top of the feed.
Workplace Stories: Inclusive
Practices and Career Acceleration

from the field, focused on how inclusive workplace practices-mentorship,
sponsorship, and others-accelerated
the career growth of our outstanding
active-outdoors industry panelists.
The Growth of Overlanding
11 a.m.-12 p.m., Overland Experience
(32087-UL)
Join Overland Journal to learn how
big the overlanding audience is, how
fast the segment is growing, and the
market potential for your business.
The Secret to Innovation is Emotional
Intelligence
11 a.m.-12 p.m., Trend + Design Center
(5019-LL)
Currently one of the most underappreciated aspects of the creative
process is found in the basic human
condition, emotional intelligence.
Many people go from childhood to
adulthood rarely taking the time to
look at why we think the way we do.
There is a lack of critical thinking
and the ability for self-evaluation
and self-management. But early life
experiences contribute to how we
perceive things and our levels of
empathy. Emotional intelligence is
a natural progression that evolves
from situations that designers and
creatives were exposed to during
crucial learning periods of their lives.
Kirsten Belaire, MA, LPC, and Jason
P. Belaire, IDSA, will explore how
designers and creatives can start
to understand their own emotional
intelligence levels and how to use this
EQ to think more critically, which can
lead to innovation.
Shared Values: The Cultural
Imperative Shaping Successful
Businesses Today
11 a.m.-12 p.m., MR405
Shared values drive culture, movements, and ultimately brand affinity.
Success for brands in the outdoor
industry hinges on the ability to
create alignment internally and externally with individual, societal, and
corporate values. Our expert panel
will discuss the role values play in
business (Conscious Company), how
