EOS Networking APP Returns for 2017, New Sponsors Secured & Further Speakers Announced


With just over a month until the fifth European Outdoor Summit (EOS) kicks off in Treviso, Italy, the European Outdoor Group (EOG) is pleased to announce the return of its popular delegate Networking APP, the support of new Summit sponsors and the addition of speakers to its exceptional line-up.

200 delegates have already registered for the EOS 2017, which takes place 4th – 5th October.  To join them book now at the website www.europeanoutdoorsummit.com/index.php/book/.  With places at the venue hotel, BHR Treviso, filling up fast, delegates are urged to book their EOS place and accommodation as soon as possible.


New to the line-up is Richard Kastelein, Founder of Blockchain News.  Blockchain has math. It has computer science. It has cryptography. It has economics. It has a political and social philosophy. It’s not easy to understand – it’s highly complex, but it’s important to understand because it’s going to affect all industries including the outdoor industry. How? From payment systems to supply chain and provenance…from privacy to loyalty programmes and more. Richard’s keynote presentation: The Blockchain Revolution – Decentralisation of Trust and Future Impact Scenarios, will take you on a journey to help you understand this new phenomenon.


Presenting two breakout sessions, Christoph Krauss is Managing Director for consumer and retail insights consultancy firm, Benchex GmbH.  Christoph’s first presentation; It´s one consumer journey – how brands and retailers improve collaboration, looks at how brands and retailers need to collaborate for seamless processes and a top notch shopper experience.  His second presentation; You need to be where your customers are – omni channel fulfilment, will look at how online plays a central role even with offline purchases and how offline retailers are starting to consider online as an opportunity rather than a threat.  He will give examples and present an outlook on omni channel marketing for offline retail organisations.

The EOG is very pleased to welcome back online business data exchange provider Btwentyfour, who has signed as Sponsor of the EOS 2017. The Btwentyfour Omnichannel platform has grown to become a well-established solution for the Retail Industry, with a local presence in Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Asia.

Following its successful launch last year, the Networking APP for Summit delegates will be back for 2017. The hi-tech solution to professional networking is once again being delivered in partnership with Myagi, who provide innovative online learning network for retail sales associates.

The EOS is a rare opportunity to connect with business associates across the European region. The Networking APP helps overcome the challenges of attending large events by improving networking opportunities, providing information on exhibitors, speakers and attendees, all from the palm of your hand. The native APP is compatible with iOS and Android platforms and will offer delegates:


  • Event agenda, sessions, speaker biographies
  • Attendee networking
  • Secure messaging
  • One-on-one meeting requests and scheduling


All delegates will personally receive an invite with a link to download the APP before the Summit.

About the EOG

The European Outdoor Group was founded in 2003 by 19 of the world’s largest outdoor companies, all of which recognised the need for a cohesive, cross border approach to representation of the outdoor sector.  In a world of increasing internationalisation, legislation, environment, the media and trade are all now multinational issues.  The combined strength of the EOG’s member companies (95 full members and 10 associate members), provides the group with an extremely powerful force to represent the European outdoor industry in a constructive and positive manner.


About the European Outdoor Summit

The European Outdoor Summit is an initiative of the European Outdoor Group, the association set up to represent the common interests of the European outdoor industry. The event is held annually and is a credible, relevant, informative resource that enables around 300 delegates to learn more about, reflect on and discuss the issues that they collectively face.  The EOG has the lead role in delivering the summit, agreeing on appropriate topics related to industry needs, focussing on current and future economic, technical and social trends, and developing a theme and content that matters to the trade across Europe.
