Discovering product innovations, experiencing brands and, at last, meeting the sector in person again – hailing the motto, “Celebrating the Outdoors – Let’s shape the future of our industry. Together”: OutDoor by ISPO takes place as the starting point into the order season from June 12 to 14, in Munich. This year the central meeting of the outdoor industry will use the spaces of the MOC Veranstaltungs- und Ordercenter München as a one-off happening. Exhibitors and brands will present themselves to a specialist audience in a total of four halls, showrooms, atria and on a number of open spaces.
The most important meeting in the outdoor sector – perfectly timed: From June 12 to 14 OutDoor by ISPO invites both new and established brands, inspiring retailers, innovative startups and suppliers, disruptive thinkers, solution providers and associations, as well as other outdoor sector companies, to meet up in Munich. Product innovations of the four product worlds, Mountaineering/Trekking/Climbing/Bouldering, Urban Outdoor, Camping & Outdoor Lifestyle and Adventure Travel, are all front and center here. OutDoor by ISPO focuses in particular on innovations and trends, sustainable production and supply chains, as well as regenerative value creation and the collective responsibility of all market partners.
All four halls, atria and several open spaces of the MOC Veranstaltungs- und Ordercenter München will be opened for OutDoor by ISPO this time round. Exhibitors can also book individual presentation areas for their products and services. Prebuilt or individual exhibition spaces are offered here, and existing showrooms will be integrated into the trade fair concept. A sustainability hub, a pitch stage and a startup area will also be provided. An accompanying conference program complements the event.
Top decision-makers and trendsetters from other industries network here with outdoor experts, to jointly and proactively address the sector’s key challenges and opportunities. Indoor and outdoor networking areas provide space for personal dialogues with established and new contacts, and visitors to the outdoor spaces will also find tent and camping equipment, travel exhibits and individual brand worlds. The Socializing & Catering Area invites everyone to meet up and hang out, and parties for the community can be enjoyed in the evening on June 12 and 13.
European exhibitors and brands such as Aku Italia, Campagnolo, Mountain Equipment, Dometic, Genfoot, Lowa, Lowe Alpine, La Sportiva, Nordisk, Schöffel, Ortlieb, Samsonite/Gregory, UYN, Skechers, Petzl, Thule, RECCO, killtec, Icebug, Sea to Summit, Komperdell, Meindl and VAUDE, for example, have already confirmed their presence for OutDoor by ISPO. Registrations are of course still possible. National and international retailers and trade associations have also announced they will be coming.
“Established brands and newcomers meet, discover trends and finally get to share information in person again. Just what the sector is aching for. We want to ensure everything required for the best possible outdoor sector get-together is in place at our location in the MOC. The earlier date is simply ideal to get oriented, see the latest innovations, and start into the order season with a really good overview,” says Lena Haushofer, OutDoor by ISPO Exhibition Director.
“Outdoor by ISPO provides us the opportunity to finally get together again at one location. It’s the ideal venue to take part in industry-wide discussions on the big topics that affect us all, and that in a really efficient way. Being inspired by new, innovative technologies and informing yourself about joint answers to the sustainability challenges we face are absolute priorities on our event agenda,” adds Mark Held, President of the European Outdoor Group (EOG).
The OutDoor by ISPO ticket shop will be online from March 8. For a climate-neutral trade fair visit Messe München offers trade visitors a GoGreen ticket, which offsets their CO2 footprint accordingly.
