About The Summit

The 2020 Utah Outdoor Recreation Summit is a three-day event held at the Utah Valley Convention Center. You’re invited to come and be a part of an important outdoor recreation discussion. You will join local stakeholders, industry professionals and land managers that play a role in Utah’s outdoor recreation community.

Network during one of our attendee activities or get outside to play at Utah Lake State Park, Provo Canyon or on the Provo River. Get inspired and stay informed about current outdoor recreation issues in one of our five educational tracks. Give back to local recreation areas and meet new people in the industry during a service project. We hope to see you there!
