The OutDoor has been the leading trade fair for a unique movement since the very beginning. It began as a niche trade fair two decades ago but has since developed into a global platform for a mega market.

24 years’ OutDoor – From a niche to a leading global fair

What started in 1994 as a small niche segment for nature sports enthusiasts and specialist suppliers has in the meantime become a global mega-trend. The whole theme “Outdoor“ has in the past 20 years made lasting changes in the specialist retail trade, and even more so in the sports industry. The growth driver and indicator was and still is the OutDoor in Friedrichshafen; the leading trade fair is the global summit meeting for the entire outdoor industry. Anything that arouses the interest of the trade public here has the best chances of flourishing and surviving on the worldwide outdoor market.

The facts and emotions behind the OutDoor

The OutDoor’s success is a singular mix of hard facts and unique emotions. The outdoor community’s spirit is fundamentally positive. And the figures demonstrate that growth is possible in many areas despite the generally uncertain economic situation.

The 24rd OutDoor impressed with 965 exhibitors from 40 countries, 21,412 trade visitors from 90 countries and 1,019 journalists from 31 countries. Significant growth came from beyond Europe. And outdoor water sports have returned. So it’s no wonder that, at the end of the last trade fair, 90% of the visitors were sure that they’d also be attending the OutDoor in 2018.
