Organizers of the OutDoor show, scheduled for July 14-17 in Friedrichshafen, say that the currently thriving industry means more interest in their event. So far, more than 660 companies from 38 countries have registered, with that total number 6 percent higher than last year's figure. Many big players will be returning for the 18th edition of the show, and some, such as Pearl Izumi and Adidas Eyewear, will make their first appearance at Lake Constance. The climbing area in particular has seen significant demand. Information is available at www.outdoor-show.com.
