Postponed until 2021 - Dates to be announced


This decision has been made as a result of consultation with Outdoor Sports Valley (OSV), the EOS partners for 2020 and the EOG board. Due to the impact that COVID-19 is having on our industry, as well as the different stages of development of the virus in different European countries, combined with the general uncertainty, the EOG believe that the best decision is to postpone the event to ensure its value for all involved.


Arne Strate, General Secretary, EOG said: “The EOS is a key event for senior executives and future leaders in our industry, delivering inspirational speakers as well as invaluable opportunities to network with colleagues. We want to ensure that we deliver the best event possible, to benefit the industry and provide insights into key topics. Unfortunately, this Autumn is not the right time and our members, delegates and sponsors need to concentrate on their businesses and families for the time being. We acknowledge that. We will continue to work on all aspects of the event so that we can meet up again in 2021 to debate, share knowledge and experiences and to work together to continue to re-build and re-shape our industry as well as spend valuable time networking with each other.”


We would like to take the opportunity to thank our partners, sponsors, delegates and all the members for their continued support, and I look forward to welcoming you all in Annecy in 2021.”


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.


It 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.
