OSV membership for EuroSIMA members is free under certain conditions*.

Active members

Annual dues are based upon revenues in France of the company applying for membership, and provide access to all OSV services.

Less than 500 000 euros in annual revenues : 200 euros

500 000 to 1 million euros in annual revenues: 250 euros

1 to 5 million euros in annual revenues: 350 euros

5 to 10 million euros in annual revenues: 700 euros

10 to 20 million euros in annual revenues: 1250 euros

For companies who join after September, dues will be prorated by quarter. For example, joining in December means a ¼ reduction in annual dues, and joining in June means a ¾ reduction in annual dues; the minimum membership fee remains 200 €, whatever the date when joining.

Affiliate members

Annual dues are 250 Euros and provide access to the OSV business and member network. Otherwise, to obtain access to all OSV services, annual dues are the same as active member dues (based on annual revenues according to the above scale).

Sponsoring members

Annual dues are 1000 Euros minimum and provide access to the OSV business and member network.

*Member companies will now pay their primary membership dues to one of the two associations, based on their core business in either urban/water sports or mountain sports. Free membership extension to the sister association will then be granted based on each member’s situation. Companies granted membership extensions will be required to name an in-house contact person to represent the company within the sister association and to keep up to date on all projects.
