The organizers of Next Summer, the new formula for the Summer Sports Purchasing and Bike Exhibition trade shows, have announced that Outdoor Sports Valley (OSV) will be an “active partner” of the events. As reported by, OSV and the regional council of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, in southeast-central France, will be offering exhibitors financial aid covering up to 40 percent of the cost of a stand. The next edition of Next Summer is scheduled to take place on Sept. 14-15 at the Semnoz, a mountain of France’s Haute-Savoie, under a 4,000-square-meter tent, specially built for the occasion. This installation is to allow visitors to test equipment for outdoor sports under real conditions.
