Within the sports industry, suppliers and service providers at the production stage are the most important links along the value-added chain. Sourcing and Textrends suppliers who provide performance textiles will always have a home to come to at ISPO Munich in the form of the Manufacturing and Suppliers area. After all, innovations and trends start with the materials.
Highly successful companies and products owe a lot to equally outstanding suppliers and the materials they provide. At ISPO Munich, the Manufacturing and Suppliers segment in Halls C1 to C5 is the meeting point for the entire production industry. In hall C4 and C5 you will find the Textrends Forum with all award winners and in hall C4 we offer you interesting speeches at the Textrends Conference.
Whether they are looking for materials, fabrics, buttons, zips, or various services, product managers, designers, and firms know they can make their way here to find the right partner for them along with the very materials they need.
The Sourcing focus area reveals the multi-faceted world of international suppliers to companies, boasting raw materials, textiles, leather goods, finished clothing, and full lines of equipment and accessories – for every sport.
The area dedicated to sourcing will be of most interest to manufacturers and suppliers (OEM, ODM, raw materials), trading companies, buyers, retailers and wholesalers, sports brand sourcing managers, designers, sales and product managers, service providers, and agencies.
ISPO Textrends is the innovation platform for the clothing industry in the form of an international competition aimed at finding the top talent within the sector. There is also a corresponding focus area dedicated to ISPO Textrends at ISPO Munich.
In this section, the best new performance textiles, fabrics, insulating materials, components, and accessories are put on display, providing manufacturers, designers, and product managers with an interactive networking platform.
A competition is held to decide on who is involved in ISPO Textrends, with candidates submitting their most innovative product as their entry. The platform offers a full insight into premium base layers, second layers, outer layers, membranes and coatings, accessories, zippers and trims, soft equipment, and insulation.
