LOCATION: Berlin, Germany.
The summit is directed at senior executives and decision makers; however, due to the success of the summit last year in Annecy, where we hosted over 300 outdoor industry leaders, and with the inclusion of other senior level directors, such as CSR, sustainability and marketing, we plan to continue to promote content to diversify attendees to the event.
This year the EOS will take place on the 28th –29th September in Berlin. The agenda is being developed under the heading: ‘The New Era - Business and Beyond’ – it will be a two day programme of presentations, networking and social events exploring the latest (and future) developments in the specific context of the outdoor industry that stimulate debate and discussion in a non-competitive environment, with the ultimate aim to improve business practices and promote sustainable growth and innovation.
In addition, the EOS will form part of the ‘Week of Sports’ a group of conferences which starts on Tuesday 26th September with the Sport Handels Kongress by SAZsport, followed by the BSI Assembly on Wednesday 27th September and culminating on Thursday and Friday with the European Outdoor Summit (EOS)
LOCATION: Berlin, Germany.
VENUE: The venue for this year’s summit is Festaal Kreuzberg, an eclectic events and concert venue which is located in the Treptow-Köpenick district, the largest and greenest neighbourhood of Berlin. Situated on the banks of the river Spree, it is surrounded by history being just across the river from the East Side Gallery Memorial, the permanent open-air gallery on the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall. With good train, bus and underground connections, this venue is under 20 minutes from Berlin’s centre.
GETTING THERE: Airports: Berlin has two airports, Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) and Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF). However, Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) is the city's main international airport, which opened in 2020. Trains: Berlin has several train stations, with the two main ones being Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Berlin Central Station) and Berlin Ostbahnhof (Berlin East Station). The city is well-connected by rail to other cities in Germany and Europe. Buses: Berlin has a central bus station called Berlin ZOB, which serves as a hub for many national and international bus lines.
"The summit really was excellent, without a doubt it's been the best industry event that I've been to in my 19 years. The presentations, panel discussions and speakers were so engaging and I really appreciated that nothing was sugar coated for the audience."
"Sharing the thoughts together with colleagues about the future of Outdoor has been extremely inspiring. At the same time networking and seeing each other face to face has been TOP."
