Paddle Expo has agreed a partnership with Outdoor by Ispo to create a Paddlesport Village at the trade fair, starting from June 30 to July 3, 2019. Paddle Expo is a trade fair for kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddling in Nuremberg, and the two parties formed a partnership ten years ago. The organizers said that the village would be the platform to check out the latest paddle sports products and to meet with experts in this business. The cooperation is part of the extended outdoor trade fair concept presented in late June by Messe München, the organizers of Ispo. They struck an agreement with the European Outdoor Group to organize the Outdoor fair in Munich, starting from 2019, after 25 years in Friedrichshafen. The two parties said the event would focus on established outdoor sports such as mountaineering and climbing but it would further include sports that consumers consider as outdoor activities, such as yoga, wellbeing, trail running, mountain biking and urban outdoor activities. Paddle Expo will be held in October in Nuremberg as usual.
