After what was described as a “tender process,” the members of the European Outdoor Group (EOG) approved proposals put forward by Messe München and the ISPO team. As such, the first edition of the new trade fair “OutDoor by ISPO” will take place in Munich from June 30 to July 3, 2019.
Since the decision, EOG and ISPO have been working on the details. These will be presented to the sector at an event planned for June 27, 2018 at the ICM – Internationales Congress Center München.
“Participants can look forward to a modern concept. We will rethink and redesign the term ‘outdoor’ together with the sector,” explains Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München. The kick-off event at the new location in Munich will provide outlook of what will be implemented one year later at the trade fair center.
“The new OutDoor by ISPO is now already being brought to life — we will show what makes it a future-oriented platform that can be used throughout the year,” continued Dittrich.
On June 27, industry giants will present their visions of outdoor, while electronics specialist TQ will provide an outlook of the possibilities offered by the technology world to the outdoor sector.
“Trail running or water sports have long since been part of the outdoor segment for consumers. We are addressing these and other topics and further developing them both for exhibitors and trade visitors,” said Dittrich.
Alongside the kick-off event on June 27, 2018, the event dates for OutDoor by ISPO for the next three years have also been set:
• June 30 to July 3, 2019
• June 28 to July 1, 2020
• June 20 to 23, 2021
