European Outdoor Summit

The European Outdoor Summit is a key industry event which brings together more than 300 senior executives within the outdoor industry, from across Europe and beyond, for a two day programme of presentations, networking and social events.

Initiated by the European Outdoor Group in 2013, the EOS is a key event in the outdoor trade calendar.  Supported by the sector's largest organisations, the Summit offers the outdoor industry a unique opportunity to come together and focus on key topics that stimulate debate and discussion, with the ultimate aim to improve business practices and promote growth and innovation within the outdoor industry.

As a pan-European organisation the EOG is uniquely placed to organise the Summit and represent the common interests of the European outdoor industry.

The European Outdoor Summit offers a unique opportunity for attendees to listen to an exciting mix of inspirational and educational speakers, and participate in engaging seminars and networking sessions. The Summit focuses on relevant themes, with a European-wide emphasis on topics related to industry needs and key strategic issues facing the sector.

With the ultimate aim of improving business practices and stimulating growth and innovation within the outdoor industry, we welcome you to join us as we discuss how we adapt to rapidly changing times, and how our sector can remain at the forefront of innovative developments

European Outdoor Summit 2021

After having to postpone the event for 2020 due to ongoing Covid travel restrictions we are looking forward to welcoming delegates back in 2021. The 2021 event will take place on the 7th-8th October. The venue location will be in Annecy, in the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, close to the international airports of Lyon and Geneva. A region that has become one of the most important outdoor clusters in Europe. International industry giants such as Salomon, Millet, Mavic, Scott Sports, Eider, Lafuma, Odlo, Arva,  Oakley... and so many others have their headquarters in Annecy, thus making this a perfect opportunity to combine and extend your trip to the summit with other meetings.

We would like to invite brands, manufactuers, retailers, suppliers, distributors, media and service providers to join us for the 8th EOS in Annecy, France, for two days of learning, networking and shaping the future of the European outdoor industry.

Besides extraordinary speakers, on-trend and current topics and educational seminars, the Summit is the ideal platform for networking and provides a unique opportunity to interact with opinion leaders from the outdoor industry.
