Concept

For designers and product managers, the search for new and innovative materials seems to be just as time consuming and elaborate as the proverbial search for the needle in a haystack. Simplifying this task, reducing the expenditure of time and yet improving the results – this is the aim of the new presentation platform for performance textiles and components.

In its structure and concept, ISPO Textrends is very similar to award contests. The participants apply with their most innovative products, which is reviewed by an international jury of experts. The best entries are then chosen and will bene t from several sales and promotional services.

 

The conceptual foundation is based on three pillars:

STRUCTURE - 10 categories and 5 textile trends Fall/Winter 2020/21

FOCUS - Large concentration of the most innovative materials

SALES PROMOTION - 11 sales promotion tools provided by ISPO to actively highlight the innovations

 

This new presentation platform generates plenty of interest amongst industry, designers, product managers and international b2b publications.

“This innovative platform at ISPO Munich receives such a positive response and overwhelming acceptance and success as the ISPO Textrends. About 3,500 trade visitors (70% brands and designers) used the platform in hall C3 to screen new materials and information and prepare for meetings. Many of the visitors purchased the Trendbook as a tool for their work in the upcoming weeks and months. The Trendbook features all the selected materials, including impressive images and a lot of information”, says Markus Hefter, Exhibition Group Director of ISPO.

ISPO Textrends is and remains a melting pot for innovations and a guide for designers and product managers.
