(NYSE: VSTO) brand, will be one of the leaders in the outdoor industry today Washington, D.Cto discuss the increasingly important role of technology in the leisure economy.

“Since our inception 10 years ago, QuietKat’s mission has provided hunters and anglers with greater access to the backcountry by replacing traditional ATVs and ICE vehicles that were illegal, too noisy or just didn’t fit on narrow trails,” said Roach. “We are passionate about keeping the wilderness wild and we believe that exploring the backcountry shouldn’t be noisy or burn fossil fuels. As the country’s #1 backcountry e-bike, we also believe in supporting industry efforts to grow this booming category by increasing e-bike access, fighting for better infrastructure and working to improve the further increase in demand for e-bikes. We are proud to join ORR and other industry stakeholders in finding solutions to the technological, infrastructure and human resources challenges along the way.”

Roach’s panel will address a variety of topics including the impact of climate change on recreational access and infrastructure, the dynamics and opportunities for electric recreational vehicles of all types, the challenges of charging on land and water near recreation sites, and other clean technology solutions and opportunities.
