“A lot has happened in the last seven months since our launch conference. In close cooperation with the European Outdoor Group and the industry, we have identified new target groups and growth potential, further developed the concept of OutDoor by ISPO accordingly and fleshed it out,” says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München. For this purpose, a dedicated advisory board has been established, which meets at regular intervals.
The acceptance in the industry is reflected in the figures: About 700 exhibitors from 36 countries have already registered. They include Adidas Outdoor, Arc’teryx, Birkenstock, Black Diamond, Fjällräven, Jack Wolfskin, Keen, Mountain Equipment, Patagonia, PrimaLoft, Scott, and Vaude. “The internationality of this current lineup of exhibitors proves the relevance of OutDoor by ISPO. Together we can cultivate a global outdoor mindset, based on our research results from before, and drive the industry forward,” says Arne Strate, General Secretary of the European Outdoor Group (EOG). An overview of all brands and manufacturers that have already registered for the inaugural OutDoor by ISPO event is available online. Applications can still be submitted.
