Look back at the 2018 event: OutDoor is Europe’s leading trade fair for the outdoor sector. For the last time before the venue moved to Munich, the global outdoor industry focused its attention on Friedrichshafen in southern Germany from the 17th to 20th of June, 2018. For 25 years, the OutDoor trade show has introduced the latest innovations in product and marketing to retailers and media from Europe and around the world. Due to its comprehensive overview of the market and strong attendance by important decision makers, the OutDoor has repeatedly confirmed its role as a leading international trade fair for the outdoor industry. The 25th edition of the trade show showcased 950+ exhibitors from 40 nations.

The 25th OutDoor covered everything from apparel and footwear to backpacks, sleeping bags, tents and camping and climbing equipment. Service providers for all retail and trade areas were also present.

Sea Bags

Hall A3; Booth 217A
Sea Bags are born as sails and transformed into nautically inspired totes and accessories that bring our customers great happiness. You see, we believe that sails soak up sun, salt, smiles and adventure. Of course, we clean our sails before we make them into bags, our materials retain the essence of what they once were, where they've been and what they've done. It's this previous life that makes each bag unique. At Sea Bags, "recycled" and "sustainable" are not afterthoughts. They are the cornerstones of our brand. Our products are upcycled from used sails. We use ecofriendly inks and develop innovative solutions for reducing scrap.

Sterling Rope

Hall B2; Booth 224
We have been making the highest quality, most innovative static and dynamic rope and cord for decades. We were the first to offer a 48-carrier static sheath construction for greater durability and better handling. We came out with the first 100% Polyester static rope called the HTP, and were the first to offer 100% Technora heat and abrasion resistant ropes to the fire industry; helping FDNY create the first escape kit. Even our accessory cords were constructed differently; utilizing our innovative sewn tacks and eyes. Our ropes and cords are seen on the most technical rescues, in the tallest trees, on remote missions as well as hazardous job sites and are there to get people home safely, day after day.
