Outdoor by ISPO preview

OutDoor by ISPO, Munich, Germany June 3-5, 2024

Think Outdoor – OutDoor by ISPO the global platform for the outdoor community.  

From June 3-5, 2024, the most exciting brands and retailers of the outdoor community will congregate in 3 halls,  A1, A2 and A3 at the Trade Fair Center Messe München. This, the original home of the exhibition which moved to the smaller MOC for a couple of years after covid. Then last year the EOG voted to move the show back to its birthplace which has enabled the show to further expand.

Under the motto “Think Outdoor”, numerous renowned exhibitors such as Vaude, Rab / Lowe Alpine, Mountain Equipment, Lowa, Meindl, Nordisk, Icebug, Marmot, Montura, Scott and Skechers have already confirmed their participation. The global trade fair brings together leading companies, manufacturers, retailers, industry experts and outdoor enthusiasts. The event offers a unique platform for networking, business opportunities and knowledge exchange in an inspiring atmosphere.

Especially in the current situation with high inventory levels and consumer restraint, it is of great importance to know and understand the latest market trends in order to set the course for successful business development. In recent years, OutDoor by ISPO has successfully proven that it is the leading platform for the outdoor industry to showcase brands and innovations, make valuable business contacts and promote collaboration within the community.

With 50% more exhibition space in three halls and a spacious outdoor area of over 5,000 square meters, OutDoor by ISPO offers an ideal environment for experiencing and discovering new products and trends.

Within each hall the areas are divided into specialist hubs which are central focus points with exhibiting brands and chill out areas. In hall A1 is the trail running test track and the climbing hub, in A2 is the watersports hub and in A3 is the sustainability hub,

The Sustainability Hub is a central point of contact for anyone interested in sustainability in the outdoor industry. Innovative and sustainable solutions are presented and discussed here in order to shape a more environmentally friendly future together. Exhibitors have the opportunity to present the entire life cycle of their products and show how they actively contribute to conserving resources.

As one of these main highlight areas, the Watersports Hub features a 100 m2 pool for brands to test and showcase their products. The pre-built options around the 350 m2 designed hang-out area give brands the option to bring new designs, innovations, and ideas to a by topic curated audience. Surfing, SUP, kayaking, canyoning, life vests – the focus is watersports adventure and life by the ocean vibes.

From partnering with Blue Earth Summit, giving the stage to Sail GP, and inviting former athlete Bjørn Dunkerbeck, to surf movies at the outdoor cinema – OutDoor by ISPO approaches watersports holistically introducing a home and meeting point for brands and all industry players alike.

Various countries have collected their brands into national hubs with the Italian village in A1, the Scandinavian village run by the SOG in A3 and the French Village run by the OSV in A3.

There will also be the opportunity to visit brands authentically presented in the great outdoors without any restrictions.

Under the open sky, the Atrium area not only offers a huge lounge and exhibition area surrounded by greenery, but will also be the place-to-be to connect and celebrate.
