"I was an active athlete for many innovative brands, ISPO BRANDNEW finalist and regular ISPO exhibitor with my own sport. Therefore I owe a lot to ISPO and ISPO BRANDNEW. Applying my experiences as a jury member is a great feeling. Because of my scientific work I am very interested in new trends and innovations and I am really looking forward to get to know new ideas and start-ups."
René Wegner has worked since his youth in the sports industry, for example for the brands Salomon and K2, so he’s familiar with many different sports. He drives himself enthusiastically snowboard for Joint Snowboards and Neff Headwear. During his studies, he invented the trend sport Headis and made it 2010 as a finalist into the ISPO BRANDNEW Village. The success was reflected in Germany-wide tournament series, TV appearances and reached to the development of a national sport. For his current thesis on the development of trend sports he’s especially interested in how new markets can be developed through innovation. So there is the reference to ISPO BRANDNEW.
