LISTICLE | 01/27/2022

"Celebrating the Outdoors". From June 12 to 14, 2022, the sports world will finally meet again at OutDoor by ISPO at MOC Munich. ISPO Senior Associate Hans Overduin explains why you as a retailer should not miss OutDoor by ISPO.


The World of Sports under One Roof at The MOC

As an innovative platform for the sports industry, OutDoor by ISPO offers the unique opportunity to see hundreds of brands in one place. Get inspired by countless established as well as newcomer brands, products, services! In addition, the Messeordercenter München offers retailers the opportunity to meet with representatives of numerous sports brands in the rented showrooms of the MOC in addition to the trade show exhibitors. So there really is no better way to discover, compare, assess innovations and prepare business decisions while still on site.


Finally Personal Exchange with the Industry Again

Sometimes we may forget, but the heart of our industry is personal contact. Whether it's with customers in the store or with brand representatives in the assortment. We've all learned by now what we can achieve together digitally - and that's quite a lot. But it has also become clear that something is missing if we can't meet in person. At OutDoor by ISPO, it's finally time again to meet in person with friends and contacts from the industry!


Recognizing Trends

The world of sports is constantly on the move. As a retailer, it is essential to help shape trends rather than run after them. This makes it all the more important to take a look through the trade show halls, which will give you a good idea of the direction in which the world of sports will be heading in the coming years.


Inspiration and Know-How

Seeing new things, hearing exciting stories and sharing experiences with other retailers inspires and releases new energy for the seasons ahead. And let's face it, how many industry colleagues do we usually meet in a typical work week?


Discover the Hottest Newcomers

The ISPO Award is the perfect way to keep an eye out for new, exciting products, innovations and brands. At OutDoor by ISPO, the most ingenious start-ups in the industry present themselves. And as a retailer, you'll be among the first to hear their stories and ideas, leaving local competitors behind.


Strengthen the Team Spirit

Working together in one company is great, but traveling together is even better. With new impressions and perspectives, brainstorming over a nice dinner or on the way to or from the trade show is guaranteed to be even more fruitful. A different environment usually produces different ideas. You can hardly invest better in your own team.


Much More than a Product Fair

Being a retailer today means more than just offering products. That's why OutDoor by ISPO has put together an extensive program with lectures, workshops, guided tours and more. Here you can talk to market experts not only from the sports industry, but also from other sectors. The selection is large, so plan some time to participate in one or the other event.


Financial Benefits for Dealers

In addition to discounted trade show tickets for retailers, exclusive parking spaces will also be made available for retailers in the vicinity of MOC. Furthermore, this year there will again be discounted hotel contingents in MOC vicinity including visa service for retailers who want to spend several days at OutDoor by ISPO.


Leading the Way for the Decisions of the Future

Some decisions simply need a little time. At OutDoor by ISPO, however, initial contacts, new impressions, and conversations can plant seeds that later turn into well thought-out decisions. With the "Connect by ISPO" invitation tool, you as a retailer can fully exploit the potential of international sales networks. Not only can you send free tickets via the tool, but you can also arrange appointments and talks with sports retailers and buyers directly. Even if no action is taken immediately, a visit to OutDoor by ISPO sets things in motion - first in the mind, later in the business.


Relax and Celebrate with Like-Minded People

After the official trade fair hours, there are numerous stands and places to relax with a refreshing drink. Just the right time to reflect on the day at the fair or to talk to like-minded people and share experiences. In other words, simply to enjoy this fantastic industry!
