OutDoor by ISPO is coming to Munich and a number of exhibitors and partners have already confirmed their involvement in the trade fair, around nine months in advance. “The international trade fair for the outdoor industry owes its popularity in no small part to the new profile, which extends far beyond the exhibition halls themselves: the 365-day platform provides brands and manufacturers with the digital and physical channels they need to be able to communicate with their customers all year round,” organisers report. “As such, OutDoor by ISPO is the reliable, modern and pioneering platform that the industry has been looking for.”

“At the end of June during the Outdoor by ISPO launch conference it was already clear that the concept developed by Messe München in cooperation with the European Outdoor Group (EOG) was exactly what the market needed.”

Over 250 international industry representatives also welcomed the plan to raise the profile of OutDoor by ISPO by establishing it as a year-round platform for the outdoor industry in addition to the trade fair. Exhibitors, from a total of 25 countries so far, including Arc‘terix, Maloja, Mountain Hardware, Jack Wolfskin, Ortlieb, Petzl, Scott, Sining Rock, Tatonka and Vaude, as well as the Oberalp Group, with its brands Dynafit, Salewa, Pomoca and Wild Country, have already registered for the first event in Munich. The new OutDoor by ISPO will open its doors for the first time at the Messe München Exhibition Center from 30 June to 3 July 2019.

OutDoor Easy

OutDoor by ISPO is an important industry event both for small and big brands and hence caters for companies of all sizes. Outdoor Easy is specifically targeted at exhibitors with a more modest budget and aims to make the exhibition process as smooth as possible. The concept consists of a cost-effective full package offering an open and attractive layout as well as a good location in the hall.

“This flexible and cost-effective stand construction concept is a high-quality and authentic solution enabling companies to showcase their products in the perfect setting without having to undertake all the set-up work on their own,” said Markus Hefter, Exhibition Director OutDoor by ISPO.

PADDLEexpo enriches OutDoor by ISPO

With the PADDLEexpo as partner the booming water sports sector will now be properly represented at OutDoor by ISPO. The professional trade show for kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddling (SUP) in Nuremberg has been an ISPO partner for ten years, and the partnership is now being taken to the next level with the installation of the Paddlesport Village at OutDoor by ISPO.

This area will be exclusively dedicated to paddlesport products and will be an important meeting place for kayaking, canoeing and SUP experts.
