Webinar overview:

COVID-19 has upended outdoor retail and consumer purchasing. For our next Trend Talk, we’ll hear from Matt Powell, who in addition to being the vice president and senior industry advisor at The NPD Group covering the sports, outdoor, and recreation marketplace, also happens to be a Mainer. Matt will offer his industry expertise for categories such as running, outdoor, paddlesports, fitness, and cycling.


About the series:

“Trend Talks” is a new Maine Outdoor Brands (MOB) series on outdoor industry trends and insights. The spring segment of the series will be delivered online to ensure the safety of participants and to make these topics as accessible as possible to businesses and organizations statewide. We hope to offer the fall segment of the series with both online and in-person options. This series was developed by MOB and the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center.
