Orvis Guide Rendezvous
Date: March 19, 2020-March 20, 2020
Location: Hotel Roanoke
For the first time the Orvis Guide Rendezvous will take place in Roanoke, VA March 19-20, followed by the Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival on March 21. This conference will alternate years between Roanoke and Missoula, MT.
The Orvis Company has been hosting the Orvis Guide Rendezvous event for 34 years in appreciation of the finest PROFESSIONALS in the fly-fishing and wingshooting space. Any and all professional lodge owners/managers, outfitters, fly shop owners/managers and fly-fishing or wingshooting guides are welcome. The goal of this Rendezvous is to illuminate industry best practices, to explore what it means to be Orvis Endorsed, and to give outdoor professionals a forum to exchange ideas with industry peers across a variety of topics. The ideas we share on issues such as leveraging the Orvis Endorsement, social media best practices, Tech solutions, guide training, customer service, and marketing will greatly enhance your business. We encourage you to share your ideas, questions, and experiences (good or bad); we can all learn from them!
The Orvis Guide Rendezvous is not open to the general public, however the Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival is. This festival is free and takes place March 21 (2pm-8pm) in Elmwood Park. The event include fly fishing equipment, demos, music, movies, food, beer, and more.
