WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
“The CWA Summit’s value lies in the relationships that are built there. When building software (or any new business), it can be challenging to determine what your customers highest needs are because every business operates differently. Many of the relationships we made at the CWA have helped us to define those needs.”
– Andrew Potter
Founder, Approach Software
“The CWA Summit is an essential event for anyone wanting to stay
up-to-date with indoor climbing.
Not only can you learn
everything there is to know about industry trends, you’ll walk away inspired and better able to run your business.”
– Steve Bechtel
Owner, Elemental Performance + Fitness

“The CWA Summit provides the best networking and professional development opportunity our industry has to offer. The workshops and panels are always topical and provide good insight to the future of indoor climbing.
It’s been critical for me as a Director of Routesetting to have conversations with other routesetters from all over the country. I’m always amazed by the ideas I take away from the Summit that are unexpected.”

“The CWA Summit allows all of us in the climbing community to come together and learn together. It’s an opportunity for not only vendors to showcase new products, but also to engage with our community.
Whether it be new gym owners learning from their peers on how to run a fun and safe gym, or for long-term gym owners to see how this market continues to evolve, to vendors learning from other vendors on what new products are being brought to market. Ultimately, it is a fun way to connect with peers, friends, and partners, old and new alike.”
