2015 Climbing Wall Summit presented by Walltopia

The Climbing Wall Summit is the climbing wall industry’s only professional development conference and provides industry members with the education, certification, networking, and inspiration to move the industry forward.  Attendees from across the globe include universities, rec centers, climbing gyms, military installations, vendors, and more. 

Nearly 500 attendees and 30+ exhibitors joined us in Boulder for the 2014 Summit. Our largest content line up ever included topics like business planning, route setting, employee management, programming, and more. We were privileged to have speakers from USA Climbing, Paradox Sports, So iLL, the American Alpine Club, Access Fund, ABC Kids Climbing, to name a few.

Schedule Structure

Prior to the Summit, the CWA hosts Pre-Conference Workshops. These are long form, in-depth workshops that typically last 4 or 8 hours.  Workshops are placed outside of the scope of the Summit in order to maximize the amount of content offered within the Summit.  During the Summit, industry experts present nearly 30 different 75 minute sessions.  These sessions cover various topics and are hosted concurrently over the two-day conference.  For more information on the event’s schedule structure, view the 2014 Detailed Schedule
