2024 CWA Summit Is May 15-17 In Portland

2024 CWA Summit in Portland Oregon

Since 2007 the Climbing Wall Association has hosted the CWA Summit, the largest climbing industry gathering in North America. Held in Colorado for many years, the in-person event moved to Salt Lake City in 2022—following a two-year gap due to the pandemic. Then in 2023 the event took place in Pittsburgh, and 2024 is slated for Portland, Oregon. The plan is to keep moving the Summit around the country to help make it more accessible.

There are two primary components of the Summit: (a) education through presentations and workshops, and (b) exhibits of products and services.
