THE OUTDOORS SUMMIT EVENT CASE STUDY

THE OUTDOORS SUMMIT EVENT CASE STUDY

The Outdoors Summit

Client: Great Outdoors Colorado & the Colorado Department of Natural Resources

Date: June 2015

Project: Working with Great Outdoors Colorado and the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, OnSight helped plan and run The Outdoors Summit, a 1-day conference of national and state leaders, advocates and visionaries launching new initiatives to protect, preserve and enhance Colorado’s great outdoors.  The Summit was an integral piece of the launch of GOCO’s Inspire Initiative, a $25 million public funding initiative to help kids get outdoors.

THE CHALLENGE

The Outdoors Summit was an unprecedented gathering of national and state leaders, advocates and visionaries launching new initiatives to protect, preserve and enhance Colorado’s great outdoors, and to close the widening gap between our youth and nature that threatens their future and the future of Colorado’s way of life and outdoor brand.

TACTICS

OnSight’s team, along with partners at GOCO and the Governor’s office, built the event’s web site and developed a mailing list with our partners to send a series of blast emails raising awareness about the event. OnSight led efforts to retain sponsors, engage conference participants and book keynote speakers featuring leaders in conservation and youth engagement. OnSight’s team developed event signage, including credentials and tickets; managed ticketing and registration; managed all event logistics; and produced a video to promote the Inspire Initiative which premiered at the Summit.
