Environmental protection is THE topic of our time. Nature is our future. This means we have an even greater responsibility in how we handle nature. That’s why for many manufacturers in this sector, sustainable practices are part of their philosophy and this is reflected in their products.
A new, open hall concept, 18 topic-specific Focus Areas and an extensive supporting programme for the trade public transformed OutDoor by ISPO into an experience platform for a modern understanding of outdoor.
Real Feelings of Nature at OutDoor by ISPO
The topic of sustainability ran like a thread through all exhibition halls. Robust wooden walls made of chipboard with the inscription “Curious what’s behind?” attract visitors to the halls. At many booths, too, reused wood dominates the design and provides real outdoor feelings.
1,018 exhibitors showcased their products and innovations during the premiere of OutDoor by ISPO. International exhibitors made up 84 percent of the total. Countries with the largest participation were Germany, UK, Italy, the Netherlands, China, Sweden and the USA.
More than 22.000 trade visitors from about 90 countries attended the trade fair. About two thirds of them came from countries outside Germany. Countries with the largest number of visitors were (in this order) Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, the UK, France and the Netherlands. The proportion of decision makers was 85 percent. A total of 87 percent of visitors rated the premiere event as good to excellent, according to official market research conducted by Messe München.
Like all events organized by Messe München, also the visitor and exhibitor numbers of OutDoor by ISPO are certified by the Society of Voluntary Control of Fair and Exhibition Statistics (FKM).
