The European Outdoor Group (EOG) is pleased to announce that IWA OutdoorClassics is returning as headline sponsor for the European Outdoor Summit (EOS) for its second consecutive year. Registration for the Summit, which takes place from 26th to 27th September 2019 in Interlaken, Switzerland will open soon – save the date!
IWA OutdoorClassics, the world-leading specialist trade fair for security applications, outdoor activities equipment, shooting sports and hunting, came on board as the Summit’s main sponsor for the first time last year. Following a positive experience, the organisation is back to support EOS 2019 and looks forward to another successful Summit.
Rebecca Schönfelder, Director IWA OutdoorClassics, said: “Over the past 45 years, the international trade fair IWA OutdoorClassics in Nuremberg has grown to become a multi-themed industry event with a global reputation. The outdoor segment, in particular, has proved highly dynamic, especially where it overlaps with the hunting theme: more and more specialist dealers are including outdoor brands in their range, and more and more companies are offering product lines with green outdoor activities in mind.
The result is much greater variety, which caters to a broad range of outdoor experiences. As the organizer of IWA OutdoorClassics, we are therefore very pleased to be able to continue our successful collaboration with the key players in the industry once again this year in our role as one of the main sponsors of the European Outdoor Summit.”
The EOG is also pleased to welcome back sports business platform ISPO and Outdoor by ISPO, and W.L Gore & Associates as Major Sponsors of the EOS for their seventh consecutive year. Both ISPO and Gore will once again offer their valuable support, which is vital to the ongoing success of the Summit.
Tobias Groeber, Head of ISPO Group said: “We have been supporting the EOS ever since the beginning. It is not only a great networking platform but also an inspiring event where all topics are discussed that will have an impact on the future of our sector. A “must attend” for all industry stakeholders. This year is a very special year for our partnership with the EOG. By hosting OutDoor by ISPO in Munich we are now able to fully support the industry 365 days a year to create a perfect outdoor for everyone worldwide.”
Matthias Zaggl, Business Leader for W. L. Gore & Associates said: “We are excited to sponsor the European Outdoor Summit 2019 in Interlaken, Switzerland. The Summit is a key industry event and platform for inspirational and educational updates, discussions and networking. And this year again with top relevant themes focusing on changes, future needs and challenges facing our outdoor industry.”
The EOS brings together high calibre leaders from the outdoor industry from across Europe and beyond, and being a Summit sponsor offers companies and brands the unique opportunity to get in front of, and interact with this exclusive audience. Finding it a positive and valuable experience many brands return to support the EOS year after year. With sponsorship packages to suit different budgets, the EOG is welcoming enquiries from relevant brands and companies both big and small.
The EOS 2019 is taking place at the Congress Centre, Kursaal Interlaken, which is within easy reach by public transport from Bern, Zurich, Basel and Geneva airports. With this year’s theme ‘The Outdoor Industry – Redefining Boundaries, the Summit will deliver a range of keynote and breakout presentations designed to stimulate, challenge, educate and – importantly, get discussions flowing!
