2016 Climbing Wall Summit

The Climbing Wall Summit is the climbing wall industry’s only professional development conference and provides industry participants with the networking opportunities, information, and inspiration to move the industry forward. Attendees from around the world include universities, recreation centers, climbing gyms, military installations, vendors, and more. 

Nearly 500 attendees and over thirty exhibitors joined us in Boulder for the 2015 Summit. Our largest content line up ever included topics like new business development, expanding your climbing facility, work at height techniques for climbing gyms, youth climbing team programs, adaptive climbing, and instructor certification. We were privileged to have speakers from USA Climbing, Paradox Sports and Petzl America to name a few.

Conference Structure

Prior to the Summit, the CWA hosts pre‐conference workshops. These are long form, in-depth workshops that typically last 4 hours to multiple days. Pre‐workshops are placed outside of the dates of the Summit, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, in order to maximize the amount of content offered at the Summit. During the Summit, Friday and Saturday, industry experts present nearly thirty 75 minute sessions. These sessions cover various topics and are hosted concurrently over the two-day conference. For more information on the conference, view the sample 2015 schedule.
