AOA Conference in Daytona Beach Tops in Attendance

The 2014 AOA conference in Daytona Beach took the top spot for attendance at an eastern meeting since the formation of AOA in 1991with 600 registered attendees from 160 outfitting businesses and 72 different exhibitors.

David Brown, AOA’s Executive Director said, “Our western events are usually larger since much of our membership is in the West, but a great turnout from the paddlesports segment in the East and Midwest put this conference on par with Western venues.  We look forward to Salt Lake in 2015, then back to Daytona Beach in 2016.”  Some attendees said the conference program was the best ever.  Keynotes John Spence and Roger Brooks were big hits as was the Confluence Castaways party sponsored by the Grand Canyon River Outfitters Association.
