After the delayed return of the OutDoor show, the 2022 OutDoor by ISPO was an incredibly vibrant and successful event, and we are already looking forward to 2023. The new venue was not without its challenges, but the feedback from the trade has been overwhelmingly positive. We have listened to market feedback and are exceedingly pleased to announce that in 2023 we will be returning to the MOC for one more year on June 4-6. Following 2023, OutDoor by ISPO will return to Riem for 2024 and 2025.
With the change in the venue comes a change in the dates for next year. The venue matters, and the sector wants to go back to the MOC. This new time slot still allows European Outdoor Group (EOG) and OutDoor by ISPO to continue progressing the show to an earlier date as requested.
EOG President Mark Held: “The recent OutDoor by ISPO at the MOC made it absolutely clear that nothing can truly replace meeting in person. When we come together as an outdoor community to discuss global trends, show new products, highlight research and CSR initiatives or networking and socialising, there is nothing as effective or efficient over a few short days. OutDoor by ISPO perfectly mirrors the EOG’s commitment to pre-competitive cooperation. These trade shows advance the association’s unique position in providing the necessary neutral platform for the outdoor industry to achieve our common vision; to do global, profitable business in a way that gives back more than we take – from nature and people.”
The hall areas, atria and showrooms in the MOC also provide sufficient amounts of growth potential for OutDoor by ISPO. This will enable the number of participating brands to rise sharply once again. In addition, more outdoor space will be available for OutDoor by ISPO in 2023.
“We listen closely to our customers and we are really happy to hear all of the positive feedback that the industry expressed about this year’s OutDoor by ISPO,” Tobias Gröber, Head of the ISPO Group, said when explaining the decision to set a new date and hold the trade fair in 2023 at the Munich Order and Event Center (MOC) once again. “The majority of our partners and exhibitors urged us to also hold OutDoor by ISPO at the MOC in 2023 following the successful premiere. Now we look forward to seeing everybody once again at the MOC and on the outdoor areas in June 2023.”
Subsequently, OutDoor by ISPO will return to Messe München in Riem in 2024 (June 3-5), and 2025 (May 19-21).
