The Camp de Base, sustainability, and the OutDoor Show

For the last three years, Wood Stock Creation has designed and built the "Camp de Base" common booth space for OSV at the major European international trade shows. The goal from the start was to optimize resources by creating a sustainable, innovative, and creatively designed space using recycled or reused materials. As part of this noteworthy approach to reuse materials as well as to satisfy the needs of exhibiting brands, the company invested in 100% recyclable floor mats and made with recycled materials. More attractive, less cumbersome, and more environmentally friendly when compared to the floor slats used at past shows, this new addition to the booth space fits right in line with the three-year-old approach implemented by Wood Stock Creation and Outdoor Sports Valley.

Put OSV undergraduate students to work on an in-company project

Students from both the "Performance Sports Textile & Footwear" and the "International Sales Specialists in Sports" Bachelor's programs, at the Université SMB's IUT Annecy Technical Institute, take courses specifically designed to meet the needs of the outdoor sports industry. In order to ensure that students gain as much in-company experience as possible before they graduate, IUT and OSV require them to formally work on a project for a company in the outdoor industry. For a company, involving the students in a new or ongoing project is a way to accelerate a study or concept, or to develop a new idea, as well as to grow and professionalize both education programs. If you have a product development and/or a business development project for which you would like a dedicated team (2 to 3 people) for 120 hours from November 2016 to February 2017, please feel free to let us know by sending an email to ann(at)outdoorsportsvalley.org. Using students for a project will cost 500 €, which will contribute to financing non-classroom related activities (company visits, travel to ISPO, etc.).
