IWA OutdoorClassics invites the industry to Nuremberg in 2024: The trade fair is celebrating its 50th anniversary. An achievement that reflects the fact that international manufacturers and retailers from the hunting and shooting sports industry have been strengthening their business and relationships at IWA OutdoorClassics for 50 years. “Especially in our industry, a personal connection between international manufacturers and specialist retailers from all over the world is extremely important,” emphasizes Rebecca Renn, Event Director of IWA OutdoorClassics. “We are delighted that they have been calling Nuremberg their home for over five decades now – founded by the industry, grown with the industry,” Renn explains. To mark the anniversary, the IWA OutdoorClassics supporting program will also be expanded. The aim is to bridge the gap between tradition and modernity. The anniversary will be celebrated with the industry at an IWA Future Party. Both exhibitors and visitors can already purchase party tickets.
The 50th anniversary is also having an impact on demand from exhibitors. At this stage, around 1,000 exhibitors have already registered. The most important industry leaders will once again be joined by numerous newcomers and first-time exhibitors. Demand is particularly high in the area of hunting and sporting guns, ammunition and optics and the associated accessories. The relevant halls are fully booked except for a handful of spaces. Retailers and visitors can look forward to the flourishing thermal imaging segment, which is concentrated in Hall 4A. The airsoft segment, which will be located in Hall 2 next year, is also growing. Here, too, there will be another highlight for visitors in addition to the AIRSOFT Shooting Range. IWA OutdoorClassics is thus asserting its role as the leading international trade fair for hunting and shooting sports. “Our mission is to present the numerous opportunities and synergies that our interlinked segments offer,” says Renn. “IWA OutdoorClassics is the platform where innovation, collaboration and inspiration come together to redefine hunting, shooting and the outdoor experience,” Renn concludes.
