The ISPO Award starts its new edition. The application period started on 28 September and ends on 4 December 2020. This earlier application deadline had already proved its worth in the previous year.
With the ISPO Award, the internationally leading sports business network ISPO honours the highlight products of the sports industry every year in different segments: from health & fitness to outdoor and snow sports. The ISPO Award stands as a seal for innovation, quality and functionality.
The winners benefit from the award effect: the specialist retail orients itself towards the prize winners and prefers to consider them. Consumers use the award as a buying argument. The award-winning product thus becomes the highlight of the sports season.
The international and neutral jury of experts made up of media representatives, retailers, athletes, consumers and material experts reviews several hundred submissions according to certain criteria, such as design, function, sustainability and innovation
"It is the trendsetting, innovative products in particular that carry the sporting goods market forward – and they often find a special way to make sports more enjoyable. This is one aspect we pay special attention to", says Jacqueline Eskandar, responsible for the ISPO Award.
Companies can benefit from special early-bird rates when submitting their products by November 6, 2020.
Exhibitors at ISPO Munich and ISPO Beijing pay only an additional 125 Euro (instead of 325 Euro) per product submission with the early bird rate, and 200 Euro (instead of 450 Euro) with the regular rate.
The ISPO Awards are presented at ISPO Munich from January 31 through February 3, 2021. All “Products of the Year” and the “Gold Winner” from official ISPO Munich exhibitors will also be presented during ISPO Munich and ISPO Beijing (January 14 through 16, 2021).
The winners will also receive a comprehensive communications and benefits package. This offers the ISPO Award Label, hangtags and stickers for the product award as well as a number of additional marketing possibilities.
