Friedrichshafen Outdoor Trade Fair 2007

For those you didn't known it was taking place (and I plead guilty here) Podcast Bob's 3 podcast coverage gives a good flavour of the more interesting elements of what sounds like a huge occasion (11 halls and 4 days)
The 2006 show had 675 exhibitors from 39 countries, including the world's top 100 brands -so a bit of a big do. And a marked contrast to the vaguely negative feedback, mine included, coming after the last Outdoors Show - the UK's big outdoor extravganza.

Not a huge amount from the lightweight/backpacking representatives, but as you'd expect Bob covers what was there, plus some of the more interesting stands. These downloads, plus may others, from The Outdoors Channel (Podzines 15-17) BTW - they're all free and don't need any sort of subscription.

And for a particularly extensive review of the new products due out over the next 12 months or so, I'd recommend sitting down with a coffee and taking the time to work through the series of articles posted by Lighthiker (aka Blogger with a press pass - lol)

He's spent a lot of time and effort working the show, and pulling his research together afterwards, to extract the good stuff.

Puts my effort to actually finish a simple thing like writing up a trip report to shame. I'm suitably chastened, but in my defence I blame all these blogs and forums to keep up with.

What have we unleashed?
