Our Work

Our members always come first. So we work to create opportunities for local business leaders and entrepreneurs to connect, learn, and collaborate, and shout their praises from the mountaintops to elevate the Maine Outdoor Brand on both a national and international stage. Keeping in line with our belief that we are stronger together, we partner with Maine’s Outdoor Office of Recreation to support career exposure and recruitment to ensure the Maine outdoor industry has a thriving, top-shelf workforce.
COLLABORATIVE MARKETING

From attending trade shows like Outdoor Retailer to producing our holiday gift guide, we promote and drive business to our member brands.

ADVOCACY + AWARENESS

We raise awareness about the importance of Maine’s outdoor recreation economy and advocate at the state and federal levels for issues important to the long term health of the industry.

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

To help connect more people to outdoor careers, we promote our job board, speak to college classes, and share resources amongst our member brands.

NETWORKING + EDUCATION

We support all of our brands - and our emerging brands in particular - by hosting trend talks, and organizing tours and meet-ups to help our members connect, learn and collaborate.
