Now live: The event and media program of OutDoor by ISPO 2024

Trend talks, athlete interviews, awards, and product tests – the program of the largest outdoor trade fair OutDoor by ISPO offers a variety of highlights and is the central meeting point for the international outdoor community. From 03.06.-05.06.2024, the trade fairgrounds in Munich-Riem, alongside renowned brands such as VAUDE, Mammut, Deuter and LEKI, will feature interactive theme areas to try out, discover, network, and relax. With guided tours on the topics of innovation and sustainability, visitors can gain a comprehensive overview before discovering their personal highlights.


The Future of Outdoor: Trend Forecast in Sports/Outdoor by WGSN (Worth Global Style Network) provides a glimpse into the future. Jon Takao, WGSN Director of Sports & Outdoor, discusses the 100-year-old outdoor athlete of the future, his attitudes, and priorities, as well as the polarizing topics of eco-responsibility and consumption that are currently at the forefront of our discussions. Top athlete and writer Kimi Schreiber will also address this topic from an athlete’s perspective in her keynote „Sustainability in Trail Running – from the perspective of a professional runner”, discussing how the growing popularity of the sport and competitions can be lived out sustainably.

On the Green Stage, Michaela Kaniber, Bavarian Minister of State for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Tourism, will be part of the panel discussion on the contentious topic of how leisure tourism aligns with nature conservation. Adding to the excitement is a panel discussion featuring mountaineer Stefan Glowacz, professional climber and human rights activist Nasim Eshqi, trail runner Kimi Schreiber, and fitness coach Chase Tucker. The latter also invites attendees to take a deep breath in his Breathing Session and reveals how personal performance can be improved while hiking, climbing, and skiing, as well as off the mountains – without needing to exert more effort. Joey Kelly’s adventurous stories on the Orange Stage will keep attendees on the edge of their seats.

The European Outdoor Group (EOG) focuses its presentations entirely to the topic of sustainability. Bowie Miles explains the complexity and intricacies of ecological assessments, Giulio Piccin from Aku presents the „Impacto” study on the carbon footprint of outdoor footwear, and Elliot Bland from the Microfiber Consortium discusses the environmental impact of fiber fragmentation in textiles. On Tuesday morning, all visitors to OutDoor by ISPO are invited to the EOG Breakfast.


Several awards will be presented at OutDoor by ISPO this year. The established ISPO Award for pioneering products with outstanding innovation and design achievements in the sports industry will be presented to over 30 products from the bike/commuting, camping/vanlife, lifestyle/athleisure, mountaineering/hiking, running/trail running and watersports sectors at OutDoor by ISPO. The big award ceremony will take place on Monday evening from 5 pm.

Alongside exceptional products and services, an inspiring adventurer will also be honoured. The 21st Century Adventurer Award of the EOFT (European Outdoor Film Tour) will be presented for the fourth time and will be awarded Tuesday afternoon. It honours athletes who embrace new physical and mental challenges, experiencing unforgettable moments in the process. This year’s nominees include climber and human rights activist Nasim Esqhi, alpinist Simone Moro and sailor and climate activist Boris Herrmann. Last year, the award was won by Jonas Deichmann (endurance athlete and cycling adventurer). The world-famous EOFT Film Tour and the EOFT Ocean Tour will also be making a stop at OutDoor by ISPO in Munich this year, showing cinematic outdoor highlights – from Monday to Wednesday, authentically under the open sky in the OutDoor Cinema at the trade fair.
