OutDoor by ISPO Retail specific agenda content

The EOG and the team at ISPO are in the process of creating a very unique OutDoor by ISPO. One of the key features of this event is a dedicated conference that aims to bring everyone together to discuss some of the key topics in our industry.

We have dedicated a significant amount of time and resources to plan and develop content with retailers and for retailers. We can only move the industry forward if we all move together, and that means our retail partners must be an integral part of the conversation.

We have worked with many of partners to gather speakers, presenters, topics, and material to cover topics unique to outdoor retail, and as such, we are asking retailers to show up and actively participate. We want this event to not just present the problems or issues but to allow us, collectively, as the outdoor industry to discuss, explore and proactively find solutions to important questions.

How are some retailers (both online and brick & mortar) emerging from the pandemic stronger and ready for what is next?
How has the consumer changed, and what trends can retailers expect in a post-COVID world?
What does CSR look like in a retail setting and how can retailers get involved?
