For the health & fitness sector, ISPO has been able to attract renowned exhibitors such as Blackroll, Waterrower and Everlast. The main topics for many brands are regeneration and prevention, for which customers are increasingly demanding more solutions.
Blackroll, the brand that has become known for its fascia rolls, differentiates between active and passive regeneration: "In the area of passive regeneration, we are presenting a smart mattress at ISPO Munich that customers can adapt to their sleep needs and that can thus have a positive effect on regeneration," says Head of Retail Martin Loer. Blackroll has also submitted a product for the ISPO Award in which years of development have gone into it. Loer: "What that is exactly is not yet revealed. But I can already say that it is a game changer in the field of regeneration wearables and we are very excited about the customers' reactions."
Those who are interested not only in regeneration but also in the physiotherapeutic aspects of training can also visit the guest event at the ICM and in Hall B0 therapy Munich.
Also in Hall C1: the Padel Village. Anyone who wants to try out the trend sport of recent years for themselves has the opportunity to do so here. Simply drop by, pick up your racket and play. Padel brands for rackets and balls, including Cip, Endless, Drop Shot, but also court manufacturers have gathered here to offer a stage to the now established backstroke sport.
But when it comes to participation, ISPO Munich goes one better: on Mondays and Tuesdays, there will be Community Runs in the mornings with, among others, influencer Imke Salander and trail runner Marcel Höche, so that retailers, for example, can exchange ideas with the experts and test the products in a relaxed atmosphere. On Tuesday, the proven running symposium together with Runner's World is again on the agenda. With speakers from Adidas, On and Joe Nimble, among others, the event will once again feature top-quality speakers.
