Sara Wänseth, General Secretary of SOG, said: “At this year’s EOS in Treviso, we promised to co-organise the best European Outdoor Summit, and we are very much looking forward to the challenge. We are proud and enthusiastic for the opportunity to, once again, welcome the outdoor industry to Scandinavia (the first EOS took place in Stockholm back in 2013). We aim to offer inspiring speakers, opportunities to network and urban outdoor activities!”

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 (79 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.
