The partnership will be launched at ISPO Munich on January 28–31, 2018. Tobias Gröber, Executive Director Business Unit Consumer Goods Messe München and Director ISPO Group says: “With FOURSOURCE we’ve gained an important cooperation partner to extend the ISPO digital services to the sourcing world and accelerate the supply chain in performance textiles”. FOURSOURCE matches manufacturers and buyers and creates closeness through an innovative digital approach. This enables ISPO customers in the sourcing areas to be visible and accessible for buyers all-year long. For the launch of the partnership, all exhibitors of ISPO Munich benefit from a free FOURSOURCE account.
FOURSOURCE, headquartered in Berlin, was founded by experienced technology innovators and industry experts. The management team around CEO Godecke Wessel and CSO Jonas Wand contributes know-how from various fashion and e-commerce companies. Their aim is to make apparel sourcing less costly, safer and to provide solutions that enable all market players to substantially speed-up their cycle time. The founders say: “ISPO is the perfect partner for FOURSOURCE. With its credibility and global network in the sports industry, we will be able to reach new markets and further develop our solution for the industry.” Today, buyers with a combined retail volume of more than 30 billion USD and brands such as S.Oliver, MANGO, Schöffel, Galeria Kaufhof, Odlo or Lasse Kjus and manufacturers in more than 40 countries are successfully using the sourcing platform. FOURSOURCE will be presented in two locations: hall A4.202 at the ISPO Digitize Area and in the sourcing hall C1.800.
