“IWA OutdoorClassics 2022 is going ahead!” says Rebecca Renn, Event Manager IWA OutdoorClassics, addressing exhibitors and visitors in an interview with WM-Intern. The leading international exhibition for hunting and shooting sports, outdoor equipment and equipment for civilian and official security requirements will take place at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 3 to 6 March 2022. As usual, about 1,000 exhibitors will be showing their products and new product developments. Confidence continues unabated. Strong support from the entire sector
With just under four weeks to go before the event, preparations for IWA OutdoorClassics 2022 are in full swing. In the latest interview with industry magazine WM-Intern, Rebecca Renn, Event Manager IWA OutdoorClassics, once again appeals directly to exhibitors and visitors: “IWA OutdoorClassics 2022 is going ahead!” Eyes are turning to Nuremberg with a sense of anticipation, and participants are looking forward more and more to gathering again on European soil: “Unlike the SHOT Show in the US, IWA has a different target group, with a more international public,” says Bernhard Knöbel, CEO of Carl Walther GmbH. “These are the people we want to see again after an absence of two years. It’s time to gather again and be creative, interact and feel fully motivated. And that’s why we are looking forward so much to IWA 2022.” Eyck Pflaumer, Managing Partner UMAREX GmbH & Co. KG, also has positive things to say about the forthcoming IWA following the SHOT Show: “The SHOT Show illustrated the fact that nothing can beat personal contact with customers and business partners. IWA will now give us the opportunity to exhibit our products to an international public and establish or cultivate business relationships, all in an attractive, state-of-the-art setting.” About 1,000 exhibitors have registered so far.

Discover the “Game Lounge”
Relax during the day, or sit together in the evening in the Exhibition Centre Park: Starting this year, these are further options that can be easily combined with a visit to IWA OutdoorClassics. An idyllic, rustic and convivial setting at the venue offers the perfect opportunity to spend an unforgettable day or evening here between Thursday and Sunday. A range of catering stands mainly serving wild game dishes, comfortable seating by the fire, outdoor lounge areas and pagoda tents invite both exhibitors and visitors to relax for a while. Spaces are limited, so registration is required to access the Lounge. For the highlight event on the Friday evening, “Wild host” Jonas Baumgärtner and Michelin star chef Valentin Rottner, in their twin functions as hunter and cook, will offer an exclusive insight into the world of wild game preparation. The catering area in the Lounge will be subject to “VR” requirements (vaccinated/recovered, or “2G” in German) .

Focus on dialogue and personal interaction
Exhibitions during the pandemic are subject to special hygiene and protection requirements. Renn believes, however, that this will have only minimal impact on the success of the event: “The important thing is to meet again and interact in person – while observing the rules on hygiene this year. That is something we will have to deal with, and it will not affect the results the exhibitors achieve at the event.” Summing up, she comments, confidently: “You won’t regret attending!”
