We are the voice of the European outdoor sector, an industry group of brands, retailers, technology providers, and national associations.
Recognising the need for a cohesive, cross-border approach to representation of the outdoor sector, the European Outdoor Group was founded in 2003 by 19 of the world’s largest outdoor companies.
The association grew steadily to include retailers, national associations, and technology providers. At any one time, the EOG manages or supports projects that are of great importance to the sector, in areas such as market research, CSR and sustainability, events and shows, outdoor retail, engaging with politicians and legislators, promotion of outdoor activities to the general public, and more. Now totalling over 100 members, the combined strength of our members delivers an extremely powerful force to represent the European outdoor industry in a constructive and positive manner.
