On the exhibitor side ISPO MUNICH also experienced new growth: 2,481 exhibitors from 52 countries (prior year: 2,344/51) presented their latest products. The net exhibit space increased by 430 square meters to 103,220 square meters total. This represents a new record for all relevant trade show statistics and once again validates its role as the leading international platform for the entire sports business.
The atmosphere was very positive during the four event days. About 74 percent of the visitors rated ISPO MUNICH 2013 as excellent to very good; another 24 percent rated the show as good. The positive results in 2012 for sports retail in particular created an upbeat outlook for the future. One of the primary reasons for this progress is that sports have gained enormous relevance in the health market. The 2nd ISPO Health Forum, held on February 5th at the International Congress Center Munich (ICM), also confirmed this development.
When asked about their prognosis for the next twelve months, 45 percent of the visitors stated that ISPO MUNICH will continue to gain importance; 50 percent indicated that the trade show will maintain its high level of importance.
The new service offers also received positive feedback: the online platform ISPO CONNECT, simplifying contacts and networking between exhibitors and visitors ahead of the show, received a very good to good rating from 89 percent of the polled. 93 percent rated the ISPO AWARD, the sports industry’s seal of quality, very good to good. And the new education platform ISPO Academy received a very good to good rating from 86 percent of visitors.
Klaus Dittrich is pleased with these results: “This allows us to face the future with confidence. Our goal is a strong, further development as a year round full-service provider for the sports industry, to network expertise from all over the world throughout the year, and actively endorse developments and trends in the sports business.”
