Why did we visit?

We were excited to visit ISPO Munich to broaden our network to find clients and potential business collaboration partners. ISPO seems to be an exciting place to learn about the latest technologies in the sports and fashion sector. Also, we were eager to learn about the latest trends and big ideas affecting the fashion industry.

What did we find?


We found that ISPO had many opportunities to have open discussions with experts and learn about new technologies. This was accessible through the Sustainability Hub and ISPO Textrends Hub.


The substantial benefit of attending such a fair was that we were able to make new contacts with a variety of companies from around the world. Below we have given more details of the companies we met the fair.
