Salomon celebrates 75th anniversary and ecologically responsible sports with the inhabitants of Annecy

An afternoon full of activities and discoveries to celebrate responsible outdoor sports.

To celebrate his 75th birthday, Salomon invites people from Annecy to meet Wednesday 29 June at the Pâquier from 2 pm to 7 pm, to celebrate together the outdoor sports that have built its history. From its inception to today, the company has built on its Annecy roots to write a formidable human and sporting adventure. An adventure built on shared values ​​and this strong belief that a closer connection with nature makes us better.

“75 years ago Salomon was born in the heart of the mountains: Salomon’s story and his place in today’s outdoor industry is largely due to this ideal environment and the local communities,” explains Franco Fogliato, CEO of Salomon.

“Our teams are immersed in this environment, between nature, the mountains and the lake. As an outdoor enthusiast, I appreciate this environment that has been central to the creation of major product innovations and the evolution of sports practices that have structured our industry for 75 years. I take this opportunity to thank all these communities that have participated in the development of Salomon, with a special mention to Annecy Town Hall for its contributions and support over the years. †
