Trends and innovations are an essential part of the sports industry. With our award platforms, we identify and honour outstanding achievements and offer a glimpse into the future of the sporting goods industry: outstanding products, new start-ups and forward-looking material innovations!
For years, the ISPO Award has established itself internationally as a trend-setting award for exceptional products. Retailers value it as an orientation tool for future product selections; journalists appreciate it as an overview of product innovations; and consumers appreciate receiving a neutral recommendation by independent experts. Outstanding Outdoor awards product highlights that make the outdoor experience more enjoyable, more accessible, safer or simply that motivate to experience the outdoor world in all its diversity. ISPO Brandnew is the biggest platform for sporty startups worldwide. Since the year 2000, ISPO has searched and designated the most promising newcomers of the sports industry. Former award winners (among others GoPro, Naish Kites, Maloja, Nixon or ON) are shaping the market today. ISPO Textrends identifies and presents the material trends of the future. The award-winning fabrics, membranes, trims, yarns and insulations find their way into the collections of high quality sportswear and fashion brands. The regular trend reports are an appreciated orientation for designers and product managers.
