When the best test

Everyone wants them, few get them – the OUTDOOR INDUSTRY Awards are among the most prestigious accolades in the outdoor industry. As a recognised mark of quality for end customers, the “outdoor Oscars” are hugely popular both with industry and retail, as well as in the media landscape.

This year, the best innovations will be chosen for what is already the 14th time. The jury is made up of independent industry experts who are all specialists in their given fields. Twelve jury members will take part in a digital elimination round beforehand; at the final jury meeting afterwards, a six-member jury will thoroughly test the original products and choose the winners.


The sought-after OUTDOOR INDUSTRY Awards will then be presented during OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen. The grand awards ceremony will take place on the first day of the show – 17 September 2019 – in the East Foyer. Apart from the online presentation of the products in our Awards Gallery, visitors and exhibitors will be able to see all of the winning products in a highly visible exhibition space throughout the whole duration of the show.


In its 14th edition this year, one additional award is being presented for the first time: the Retail Award. Who is offering the best shopping experience? Who has put together the most sustainable shop concept? Our jurors will be scrutinising all entries, rewarding the winners in three different categories with our award label.


Those wishing to present their new products to the outdoor world can submit their applications  for the OUTDOOR INDUSTRY AWARD until 25 July 2019. Exhibitors and Start-Ups will benefit from reduced entry fees, but the terms are also fair for all others interested in applying. The application deadline for the Retail Award is 15 July 2019. The participation in free of charge for retailer!
