European Outdoor Summit – delegate registration now open and new headline sponsor


Online delegate registration for the 2018 European Outdoor Summit (EOS) is now open.  EOS will take place from 19-20 September at the Clarion Hotel & Congress Malmӧ Live, in Malmӧ Sweden.  Bookings can be made with an early bird discount rate until Friday 27 July, at www.europeanoutdoorsummit.com


The European Outdoor Group (EOG) is also pleased to unveil IWA OutdoorClassics as its first headline sponsor for EOS. IWA OutdoorClassics is the world-leading specialist trade fair for shooting sports, hunting, outdoor activities equipment and security applications, and takes place from 8-11 March 2019 at the Nuremberg exhibition centre.


Rebecca Schönfelder, Exhibition Director for IWA OutdoorClassics, said: “As one of the main sponsors of the European Outdoor Summit, we look forward to supporting the interests of the European outdoor sector for the first time in 2018.  Manufacturers and retailers in this sector have also long been part of IWA OutdoorClassics, which has been the leading international trade fair for more than 40 years now and takes place annually in Nuremberg, Germany.  As an organizer of this trade fair, we firmly believe that even in the digital age nothing can replace the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with people face to face, so we can reach new goals together.”


Commenting on the sponsorship, Mark Held, General Secretary for the EOG, said: “Since the European Outdoor Summit began in 2013 it has gone from strength to strength, with brands and organisations recognising the valuable insight it brings from both within and outside of the industry.  We have had immense continued support from the industry over the years, and are now excited to bring on board the summit’s first ever headline sponsor, IWA OutdoorClassics. Their support, together with that of our other new and long-time partners, is extremely valuable and will help us to once again deliver a fantastic event!”


Offering excellent value for money, the EOS early bird delegate place costs just 5550 SEK + VAT (approx. €550), increasing to 6550 SEK + VAT (approx. €650) from Saturday 28 July.  In addition to a full programme of speakers, the delegate rate also includes a networking evening, which will take place on Wednesday 19 September, with further details to be announced in due course.


Delegates can book accommodation at the Clarion Hotel, which is attached to the Malmӧ Live congress centre. The Clarion offers over 400 guest rooms with stunning views over the city, making it the perfect accommodation for EOS delegates.  Rooms at the venue can be booked directly via a link from the EOS website; bed & breakfast individual rooms cost from 1600 SEK (approx. €155) and bed & breakfast double rooms cost from 1,800 SEK (approx. €175).
