Demo Day is an event to encourage healthy, active outdoor recreation to complement the Conference. By combining the things outdoor enthusiasts love – paddling, music, gear, biking, and demos all in a beautiful outdoor setting – Demo Day is a celebration of everything outdoors.
Demo a mountain bike, try out some climbing shoes, learn about tree climbing, test your skills on SUPs, crawl into a tent, try your hand at a nine hole disc golf course, listen to killer music, and paddle down the river.

Black Diamond Testing Lab (Pre-Conference Workshop)
Do you have questions about climbing equipment uses, failures, proper vs. improper use? Do you ever wonder about specific scenarios you have encountered in climbing and wondered about the results that could happen? This this session will be an interactive presentation of the laws of physics and how it interacts and effects climbing gear. We will create scenarios in which we push equipment to the limit and beyond, showing failures and how to avoid these issues. We will show how and why equipment fails or can fail, and how to mitigate these failures. We shall be joined by members of the Black Diamond Quality Control team to answer a multitude of scenarios. See their work in their blog. Space is limited - reserve your spot now by registering for this free pre-conference workshop!
We'll also have a climbing tower, tree climbing equipment, trail gear, canoes, kayaks, SUPs and more for you to demo!
Be sure to regularly check back as we continue to update confirmed vendors!
