Messe Friedrichshafen and the European Outdoor Group (EOG) have agreed on the dates of the OutDoor show through 2016. The organizer of the fair and the European industry federation consider a date around mid-July – as in the previous years – to be the most appropriate period during the order season, as the date is sufficiently early in the calendar to give suppliers the chance to make their plans based on valid data from retail in order to secure a reliable forecast for the following year. The next four editions of OutDoor will be held in Friedrichshafen on July 11-14, 2013; July 10-13, 2014; July 9-12, 2015; and July 14-17, 2016.
