Silent Auction during the 2015 Symposium

American Trails will donate half of the proceeds made from the Silent and Live Auctions to our Nepalese friends and The Great Himalaya Trail.

We were looking forward to having seven delegates from Nepal join us in Portland, but with the devastation that occurred due to the massive 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th, just three weeks prior to the start of the Symposium, they are no longer able to come. (We were very pleased to hear from our contacts in Nepal a few days after the earthquake and, and even more pleased to learn they were okay!)

The Great Himalaya Trail is a draw for tourism and serves as a major economic engine for Nepal. It provides livelihoods for so many Nepalese families. So, helping the trail will mean helping the people. We are a part of a global community, and we hope this donation will help our Nepalese friends rebuild and to know their American Trails family is thinking of them.

The Symposium will attract over 700 attendees from all 50 states, Canada, Australia, and the international community at large. It is the premier venue to showcase your organization’s/company’s products. Our attendees are avid outdoors enthusiasts who are always searching for unique products and opportunities. We encourage you to donate items that represent what your organization/company has to offer to the trails world. Auction items can also be included in a customized sponsorship packet.
