The are best grounded visions in reality.


Themixright of future and present


We are convinced that bricks-and-mortar trading is also the future. Online retail continues to grow, but personal contact remains highly relevant when it comes to providing expert advice, service and the respective communities. Innovative, product-driven brands and manufacturers and independent retailers are the backbone of the outdoor industry. OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen offers the right atmosphere in a familiar, but new setting for exactly these players.


AUTHE HANDS VISION Because real adventures take place far from big cities – the outdoors is there to be experienced.

Because only new paths can lead to new goals.


ENTIC S-ON NARY Because we know what the industry wants – and what we can offer it.


Concept


TO STRENGTHEN THE INDUSTRY’S CORE BUSINESS. OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen presents the industry from its best side. Our offer is tailored to meet the needs of small and medium-size brands as well as manufacturers and owner-managed outdoor retail operations. By focussing on authentic outdoor topics, we ensure that everyone can concentrate on their core business. We make things as easy as possible for you as an exhibitor – from organisation, to financing, to set-up and implementation. Our experienced team guarantees that you benefit from pragmatic, transparent and efficient processes. OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen takes place at the end of the main retail sales season, but still within the timeframe for order dates. This is advantageous for retailers as they will have a clear overview of how the season has gone.


Outdoors in its purest form. OUTDOOR Friedrichshafen with its clear focus themes reflects the origins of all outdoor activities – experiencing the natural world. We support the market’s drivers with talks and workshops and new trends, inspiration and ideas.
