Rebecca Schönfelder, Exhibition Director for IWA OutdoorClassics, said: “As one of the main sponsors of the European Outdoor Summit, we look forward to supporting the interests of the European outdoor sector for the first time in 2018. Manufacturers and retailers in this sector have also long been part of IWA OutdoorClassics, which has been the leading international trade fair for more than 40 years now and takes place annually in Nuremberg, Germany. As an organizer of this trade fair, we firmly believe that even in the digital age nothing can replace the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with people face to face, so we can reach new goals together.”

Commenting on the sponsorship, Mark Held, General Secretary for the EOG, said: “Since the EOS began in 2013 it has gone from strength to strength; with brands and organisations recognising the valuable insight it brings from both within and outside of the industry. We have had immense continued support from the industry over the years, and are now excited to bring on board the Summit’s first ever headline sponsor, IWA OutdoorClassics. Their support, together with that of our other new and long-time partners, is extremely valuable and will help us to once again deliver a fantastic Summit!”

About the EOG

The European Outdoor Group was founded in 2003 by 19 of the world’s largest outdoor companies, all of which recognised the need for a cohesive, cross border approach to representation of the outdoor sector. In a world of increasing internationalisation, legislation, environment, the media and trade are all now multinational issues. The combined strength of over 100 EOG members provide the group with an extremely powerful force to represent the European outdoor industry in a constructive and positive manner.

About the European Outdoor Summit
