1,383 exhibitors, international share 79 percent
Over 41,000 trade visitors from all over the world
Everything to do with hunting, shooting sport, outdoor and security equipment
After four intensive trade fair days from 6th to 9th March 2015, NürnbergMesse, the organizer of IWA OutdoorClassics, the world’s most important trade fair for “Target Sports”, “Nature Activities” and “Protecting People”, gave a positive assessment of the event: even after more than four decades IWA OutdoorClassics continues to become more attractive and appealing each year.
The opening of IWA OutdoorClassics 2015 by the Bavarian Minister of the Interior and the Mayor of the City of Nuremberg along with the Finnish mountaineer and entrepreneur, Veikka Gustafsson, was still very much in progress on Friday morning, here the total of 1,383 exhibitors (2014: 1,336) in the nine exhibition halls were already delighted with the very keen, positive response from the trade visitors. By the time the doors had closed on this year’s event on Monday afternoon, more than 41,000 trade visitors, around two thirds of them from 123 countries all over the world (2014: 39,244 trade visitors, 117 countries), had informed themselves about new products, innovations and trends.*
Every year in early March the trade world comes together at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre for the sector’s most important international showcase for hunting and shooting sports, outdoor equipment along with civilian and official agency/authority security equipment, which now offers a multi-thematic range of products and services covering all aspects of classic outdoor activities. In this connection, new and renowned companies have thus further expanded the list of exhibitors at this year’s fair; for example outdoor experts Haglöfs, X-Bionic, Helsport or Dachstein as well as two of the largest angling equipment manufacturers in the world: D.A.M. Neue Deutsche Angelgeräte Manufaktur from Germany and Fladen Fishing from Sweden.
After Germany the leading exhibitor nations were the USA, Italy, Great Britain, Turkey, China and France, the Czech Republic, Spain and Austria. IWA OutdoorClassics is organized by NürnbergMesse, while the honorary sponsors of the event are the Verband Deutscher Büchsenmacher und Waffenfachhändler (German Gunsmiths and Traders Association, VDB) and the Verband der Hersteller von Jagd-, Sportwaffen und Munition (Hunting, Sports Guns and Ammunition Manufacturers Association – JSM).
