OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen – The Vision

Despite the increase in online retail there is no way of avoiding brick-and-mortar retail in the medium term – either in terms of sales, advice or community aspects. Innovative and product-driven brands and manufacturers and independent specialist retailers will continue to represent the backbone of the outdoor industry. With an authentic setting and the right ambience, we offer the real industry players a new, old home

Date: September 17 – 19, 2019
Opening Hours:
September 17: 12:00 noon – 6:00 p.m.

The organiser and brand proprietor is Messe Friedrichshafen – Germany’s market leader in the area of sport and leisure shows, and the founder and originator of the OutDoor trade fair whose brand rights were later assigned to the EOG.
We present the outdoors from its best side – tailored to the needs of a landscape characterised by small and medium-sized manufacturers and brands on the one hand, and owner-operated specialist retail on the other.
We have a great deal to offer: real added value, authentic atmosphere and a focus on the outdoors in its purest form, for all players in the German-Austrian-Swiss market – in the areas of hardware, mountaineering, camping & caravanning, water sports and outdoor lifestyle.
The trade fair takes place from September 17 – 19, 2019 – at the end of the summer holidays and the main sales season but within partial order dates, and with a high level of specialist retail knowledge about the status of the previous season.
The motto is “Simply Different” – in every respect: simple to plan, affordable and, of course, innovative in terms of arranging the trade fair on the ground.

The concept

Outside the summer holiday season and at a time of advanced sales – that is the basis for OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen. Retailers can engage here with all the aspects that relate to their business with a unique level of intensity.

The OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen is simultaneously a platform for dialogue, a trend barometer, a face-to-face platform, a best practice market, a partial order market and a knowledge forum – in short, everything that retail needs.
