Outdoor Adventures Connection Unveils Comprehensive Survey Results on the State of the Outdoor Adventure Industry

(Charlotte, North Carolina, February 20, 2024) Outdoor Adventures Connection, a leading platform dedicated to connecting adventure seekers with unparalleled outdoor experiences, today released the findings of its annual Outdoor Adventures Industry survey.  The report, which encompasses data from across the United States, assesses current trends, challenges, and opportunities within the outdoor adventure sector, and offers valuable insights for businesses involved in the outdoor recreation industry. 

The primary objective of the annual survey is to gather actionable data to better understand the evolving landscape of the outdoor adventure industry. In an era marked by significant shifts in consumer behavior, environmental concerns, and technological advancements, the survey captures the current state of the industry, from business operations and customer demographics to emerging trends in adventure travel.

The survey was conducted over a one-month period, engaging participants from a diverse array of outdoor adventure businesses, including providers of adventure travel, outdoor gear retailers, and eco-tourism services. Participants in the survey offered a representative sample of the industry’s small to medium-sized enterprises across various regions. 

Going beyond mere statistics; the Outdoor Adventures Industry survey from the Outdoor Adventures Connection (www.outdooradventures.pro) provides an in-depth analysis of the current state of the adventure travel industry.

Some of the key findings of the survey include:
