Every year ISPO honors extraordinary sports products with the ISPO AWARD. The ISPO AWARD has established itself as seal of quality for the sporting goods industry. Retailers value it as an orientation tool for future product selections; journalists appreciate it as an overview of outstanding product innovations; and consumers appreciate receiving a neutral recommendation by independent experts.

Application information

The awardees for ISPO AWARD 2017 are announced.

The new application period will start by mid of October 2017.

Detailled information on categories, requirements, dates, benefits and costs can be found below the following panels:

All companies producing and/or distributing sporting goods may enter the ISPO AWARD Products competition, regardless of being an ISPO MUNICH or ISPO BEIJING exhibitor or not. Companies can apply with one or more products.

What you have to do as an applicant...

1. PRODUCT SELECTION: Select the product highlights for your application. You can also apply with several products. A separate application is required for each product.

3. PROVIDE A VIDEO: Send us a video that explains very clear your product to the jury. It is just a information tool for the jury, so the content is essential and not the making and professionalism of the video.

8. AWARD CEREMONY: The award ceremony for GOLD WINNERs and PRODUCTs OF THE YEAR and takes place during ISPO MUNICH 2017. All awardees, applicants and ISPO visitors are welcome.

9. PR: Several PR and promotion campaigns will support the winners and their projects before, during and after the ISPO AWARD ceremony and ISPO MUNICH 2017.




Every year, ISPO honors the most exceptional sporting goods with the ISPO AWARD. A jury consisting of independent sports business professionals evaluates several hundred entries – also from non-exhibitors – following clearly defined criteria. This premium selection presents a welcome orientation for both sports business professionals as well as end-consumers. It serves as a reference for retailers when choosing their upcoming product range; to end-consumers, it is seen as an important purchase argument. Both trust the jury's neutral decision.

The jury and the ISPO AWARD team are looking forward to another set of numerous interesting applications.
