We are the voice of the European outdoor sector:

Our vision is to do global, profitable business in a way that gives back more than we take - from nature and people.

We are here to support our members’ collective vision for the outdoor sector.

We undertake market leading research, organise and support trade shows and industry events, sustainability and social responsibility initiatives, work to support conservation and encourage and enable European citizens to get active outdoors and, last but not least, we represent our sector to the European Commission, NGO’s and other stakeholders.
