Outdoor sports valley members

OUTDOOR SPORTS VALLEY - OSV

"Outdoor Sports Valley - OSV" designates both a region and industry cluster dedicated to outdoor sports. This region covers the entire Alps and ecompasses thousands of employees who work in the sports and recreation industries, the headquarters of most outdoor industry companies, and represents one of the planet’s most unique playgrounds.

The Outdoor Sports Valley concept, developed in Annecy in 2009, became an official association in 2010, and a certified industry cluster (Grappe d'Entreprises) in 2011 by the French state (DATAR). Annecy, exceptional geographic and strategic location, is the official capital of the Outdoor Sports Valley.
