The first OutDoor by Ispo will take place from June 30, 2019 to July 3, 2019 in Munich. The fair will feature over 50 international exhibitors in nine halls with more than 96,000 sq. mt. of exhibition space in the Munich exhibition centre. In close cooperation with the industry, the Ispo team has tried to develop a modern, consumer-centred concept for the event. Their aim is to inspire as many people as possible worldwide, to break down inhibitions and to show the multitude of possibilities and varieties of "outdoor" that consumers have long been experiencing.
The focus of the fair continues to be classic outdoor activities such as climbing or hiking, however, it is also adding new segments such as mountain biking, trail running and water sports are being added. In addition, OutDoor by Ispo opens up sectors outside the outdoor industry such as environmental technologies or digital trade and technology solutions.
Another focus of the fair is on sustainability. The fair aims to reflect the pioneering role of the outdoor industry in terms of awareness of sustainability and social responsibility in the apparel sector. The trade fair has developed a holistic sustainability concept that is to be implemented as a fact-based sustainability guideline with concrete recommendations for emissions, water and waste management.
The new ticketing model at the fair is intended to motivate retailers to visit the trade fair: Retailers, wholesalers and distributors will receive their day ticket in the Early Bird tariff from 15 Euros until 20 May 2019. Other groups of trade visitors will start at a ticket price of 75 Euros.
