2020 Superconference - Envision the Future of Outdoors Communications

The Southeastern Outdoor Press Association (SEOPA) aspires to attract outdoor communicators and industry representatives from all across the country for a Superconference in September or October of 2020 in a yet-to-be-determined location.

“Approximately 25 national, regional, and state groups exist to serve the needs of outdoors communicators and allied corporations,” said Lisa Snuggs, executive director of the SEOPA and CEO of OJEFA, “The late Mike Walker, a long-time outdoor marketing professional, envisioned a Superconference as just one way groups could join forces to tackle tough issues and plan for a strong future.”

“All organizations go through cycles of growth and decline based on changes in technology, philosophy, etc.,” SEOPA member and AGLOW Past President Brandon Butler said, “but groups rooted in traditional outdoor pastimes like fishing and hunting face challenges connected to access (lack thereof), politics, the economy, lost heritage, and other factors unique to our members. Working together can only make things better for the future of outdoor recreation and communications.”

The 2020 Superconference committee hopes to foster cooperation, education, and industry-wide forecasting for all parties involved in communicating about the outdoors. DMOs should click here to learn about the bid process.
