The European Outdoor Summit 2019 will take place on 26 and 27 September in Interlaken.

The final speaker added to this year's line-up who will explore this year's Summit theme: The Outdoor Industry - Redefining Boundaries, is Malcolm Newbery of Malcolm Newbery Consulting, who presents his keynote: Redefining your Supply Chain for Today’s World.
Clothing is seasonal and fashionable. In today’s world, the fashion industry has changed its supply chains from rigid to reactive, from slow to ultra fast. Has the outdoor clothing sector a right to ignore these changes? Or must it come to terms with them, in spite of its inherent difficulties?

Malcolm will also present a breakout session: Omni-Channel Pricing, Sourcing & Stock Control, which follows on from his keynote.

Furthermore, the EOG announced the complete timetable of the EOS 2019 which can be found here.


A few weeks ago, the EOG announced Pippa Goodman from Foresight Factory, Marta Pellegrino, Sustainability Specialist from Oberalp, and Kai Landwehr, Head of Marketing at myclimate, are be won as new speakers for the EOS 2019 with its focus on "The Outdoor Industry - Redefining Boundaries".

Pippa Goodman's keynote on "The Changing Boundaries of Engagement" highlights the value consumers place on their own physical presence that is similar to time or money. Consumers are becoming more selective about the places, leisure activities or stores that they choose to engage with in person.

How Oberalp Wants to Reduce its Carbon Emissions

The presentation on "Partnering for a More Sustainable Business" will be hold by Marta Pellegrino and Kai Landwehr. They both show how Oberlap - parent company of Salewa, Dynafit, Pomoca and Wild Country - monitors and reduces its carbon emissions in collaboration with myclimate. Oberlap wants to set the course for ecological and economic success in the future with a three-stage solution.

In addition to many keynotes, presentations and workshops, the European Outdoor Summit also offers a networking evening with a BBQ atmosphere and much more. Tickets for the European Outdoor Summit in Switzerland are available here for 650 Euro.
