The Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) in the U.K. is to host next year’s European Outdoor Summit (EOS) on Oct. 14-15 2015. This news was made official on the last day of this year’s summit which was held at Lake Tegernsee, Germany, yesterday and today. The European Outdoor Group (EOG) has commissioned the OIA to organize and host the third edition of this event and the city they chose was Sheffield in Yorkshire.
We put forward a comprehensive bid to host the EOS and I’m really pleased and proud that we have been awarded the opportunity to organize the 2015 event in the U.K.”
Andrew Denton, CEO, Outdoor Industries Association
Sheffield is considered an excellent choice thanks to its infrastructure and its initiatives to position itself as the country’s “Outdoor Capital”, thanks to its location close to the Peak District National Park. For more information on the British federation, visit its website.
