The special spirit. OutDoor Friedrichshafen is one of the most fascinating business trade fairs in the world. Working in a highly concentrated way but relaxed at the same time â€“ this is no contradiction in terms at Friedrichshafen but rather lived reality. Take the opportunity for some downtime and relax in one of the many chillout areas before dedicating yourself to the next appointment or meeting with renewed energy. Meet like-minded people over a cool drink in the shade, to exchange information and establish contacts. Outdoor not only means business and sport, but also represents an attitude towards life. Friedrichshafen is the perfect setting to express this with its attractive location in exceptional surroundings, compact and modern trade fair grounds coupled with the highly professional team.
Working in a relaxed atmosphere - networking between the palms and the pool.

Mark Held, general secretary of the European Outdoor Group (EOG), perfectly sums up the 22nd OutDoor 2015: “The atmosphere at this year’s OutDoor was very positive. At a time in which competition is more intense than ever before, both exhibitors and industry visitors have worked very hard. They can thus ensure that they are one step ahead when it comes to yielding a profit on trends and introducing new products as well as subcategories onto a market that continues to develop at a fast pace.”
