Diamond Brand Gear Named Title Sponsor of National Outdoor Conference

September 17, 2019

Brand continues to expand wall tent education among Boy Scouts of America

Asheville, NC – September 17, 2019 – Outdoor craft manufacturer Diamond Brand Gear takes great pride in its 90-year history with the Boy Scouts of America, and is excited to be the title sponsor of the 2019 National Outdoor Conference, Scouting’s largest gathering of volunteers and professionals.

The National Outdoor Conference will include four days of elective sessions, keynote speakers, vendor exhibits, backcountry excursions, special programs, fellowship with Scouting’s top outdoor leaders, and more. At the conference, Diamond Brand Gear will host a course on best practices for wall tent care and maintenance. Attendees can also check out Diamond Brand Gear’s brand-new glamping tent in the vendor’s booth area – the Hestia tent, a 12×16 foot canvas wall tent with unique windows, including a picture window, enough room for extra amenities and the option to add a front porch space for outdoor living and relaxation. Additionally, Diamond Brand Gear will be displaying all three sizes and colorways of its dining canopies in the registration area.

“For nearly a century, Diamond Brand Gear has supported the Boy Scout’s commitment to building character and developing leadership in today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders,” said Lauren Rash, COO of Diamond Brand Gear. “We are proud to be the title sponsor of the National Outdoor Conference and to expand our wall tent education among Scouting volunteers and professionals.”

Diamond Brand Gear has made it their mission to spread wall tent education across the country. Rash and CEO John Delaloye recently traveled to Indiana to meet with the Crossroads of America Council. There, they helped rangers with continuing education on the best practices for wall tent care and maintenance to extend the life of the camp’s current wall tent inventory.

The National Outdoor Conference will take place at the Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scout’s largest National High Adventure Base, from September 25 through September 29.For more information about Diamond Brand Gear’s participation, please email Angie Robinson at
