European Outdoor Summit 2016 Activities Announced

Wall climbing, paddle boarding and running on offer for delegates looking to get active outdoors


The European Outdoor Group (EOG) is pleased to announce a superb line-up of activities on offer to all delegates who have registered for this year’s European Outdoor Summit (EOS), which takes place 29th-30th September in Barcelona. 

With ‘building outdoor participation’ as one of the key pillars for this year’s Summit, the activities on offer have been selected to tie in with the theme and offer delegates the opportunity to trial Barcelona’s outdoor scene. 

Available for delegates to carry out in their free time around the main summit programme, EOS activities include a good mix of options to appeal to all. Activities on offer this year are: 

  • Paddle boarding: Take the opportunity to get out into the Mediterranean with this fun and easy activity which is accessible from Barcelona city centre via public transport in around 10 minutes. Free of charge to delegates, there will be two, two-hour paddle boarding sessions held, one on Wednesday 28th at 3pm and the other on Friday 30th at 4pm. SPACES ARE LIMITED with each session having a capacity of 25 people. Full details on booking a paddle boarding session and location will be sent out closer to the time. 

  • Climbat Climbing Centre: Europe’s largest climbing wall and only a 20 minute walk from the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Climbat, offers 800m² of scalable surfaces and is a must-try activity while in Barcelona. Climbat is offered as a self-service activity for delegates to do at their leisure and organisers have negotiated a special discounted rate of just €3 per delegate, reduced from €12 per person. Climbing shoes rental will be extra. 

  • Self-service runs: These can be done at any time and start from the Crowne Plaza Hotel; handy pocket-sized maps with directions are available in the hotel reception. With three routes of varying length on offer: Blue = 9.6km, Green = 6.8km and Red = 3.2km, the self-service runs are suitable for all abilities and allow delegates to take in the sights of the city. There is also a BARCELONA CORRE APP listed on the map, which provides further details on type of terrain, green areas, fountains and difficulty levels. 

Full details on how to take part in the EOS activities will be sent out in due course.

About the EOG

The European Outdoor Group was founded in 2003 by 19 of the world’s largest outdoor companies, all of which recognised the need for a cohesive, cross border approach to representation of the outdoor sector. In a world of increasing internationalisation, legislation, environment, the media and trade are all now multinational issues. The combined strength of the EOG’s member brands (86 full members and 10 associate members), provides the group with an extremely powerful force to represent the European outdoor industry in a constructive and positive manner.

About the European Outdoor Summit

The European Outdoor Summit is an initiative of the European Outdoor Group, the association set up to represent the common interests of the European outdoor industry. The event is held annually and is a credible, relevant, informative resource that enables around 300 delegates to learn more about, reflect on and discuss the issues that they collectively face. The EOG has the lead role in delivering the summit, agreeing appropriate topics related to industry needs, focussing on current and future economic, technical and social trends, and developing a theme and content that matters to the trade across Europe.
