Outdoor media conference to be in Ogden in 2011

Ogden has scored another coup in its quest to rebrand itself as a destination for outdoor recreation with the news that a gathering of outdoor media members from mostly eastern and midwestern states will be held here next summer.

The Professional Outdoor Media Association announced Tuesday that it will bring its annual business conference to Ogden Aug. 10-13, 2011, at the Ogden Marriott hotel downtown. It will be the first time a Western city has hosted the conference.

Approximately 185 newspaper and magazine journalists, as well as freelance writers, are expected to attend. Aside from the actual conference, they will have chances to experience the fishing, biking, hiking and other outdoor recreation opportunities the surrounding area offers. Ogden Standard-Examiner
