The European Outdoor Group (EOG) is pleased to announce that adventurer, microadventurer and author Alastair Humphreys is to be the opening speaker for the European Outdoor Summit (EOS) 2016, and leading trade fair, OutDoor as the next big industry name to sign as a sponsor.


With just five days left to register at the discounted early-bird rate, now is the time to BOOK YOUR PLACE ahead of the Friday 22nd July deadline and secure an audience with some high profile names within the industry!


Signing as a Support Sponsor and a key addition to the EOS, OutDoor began as a niche trade fair for nature sports enthusiasts and specialist suppliers in 1994. It has since developed into a global platform for the entire outdoor and sports market and specialist retail trade and is an annual highlight for exhibitors, trade visitors and press; attracting 940 exhibitors from 341 countries, 21,464 trade visitors from 85 countries and 1,052 journalists from 29 countries.

Having carried out challenging expeditions all around the world, and named as one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the year for 2012, Alastair further strengthens the EOS speaker line-up and his talk on microadventures will add an energetic, inspirational and motivational dimension to the agenda.

A microadventure is an adventure that is short, simple, local, cheap – yet still fun, exciting, challenging, refreshing and rewarding.

As the world’s population becomes increasingly urbanised, busy, and stuck in front of a screen, microadventures offer a realistic escape to wilderness, simplicity and the great outdoors, without the need to ski to the South Pole or go live in a cabin in Patagonia.

The appeal of microadventures is that they make adventure accessible to people who may have very little outdoor experience.

This year’s EOS takes place from 29-30 September 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Barcelona, Spain.
