The Summit is THE international event where the climbing wall industry gathers for professional development, trainings, to discuss industry trends and network with peers, vendors and customers. It’s where the industry charts its growth, improves its health and protects its independence. The Summit is where leaders emerge.
The Summit is designed for professionals who work in or do business with climbing facilities and programs. Content is directly geared to these roles and types of facilities:
Members of the broader climbing industry often attend: association representatives, manufacturers, distributors, competition organizers, coaches, and guides. While many sessions cover advanced topics, the Summit is a fertile learning ground for those about to start a climbing venture or begin a career in the industry.
Concurrent sessions concerning research and trends, business development, marketing, retail development, climbing instruction, standards, risk management, and responsible climbing wall operations. Pre-Conference workshops provide hands-on roll-up-your-sleeves training on topics such as Instructor Certification, building risk management tools, business planning and technical skills like route setting.
Each year attendees comment about how much they learn from each other. They also tell us that being immersed with the industry’s top professionals ups their game, drive, and creativity. Each day features special events, activities, entertainment and gatherings for attendees
