Ispo Beijing, with 490 exhibitors will open its doors between February 24 and 27, 2016 at the China National Convention Center in Shanghai and will run concurrently with Alpitec China.

A press release from the organiser stated that the event will showcase latest innovations from the fields of outdoor, action sports, skiing, sports fashion, fabrics and fibres across 40,000 square metres of space.

Complementing these new products and features will be an events program, selected highlights of which include the Ispo Award, Ispo Textrends, and the Asia Pacific Snow Conference.

According to the organiser, Beijing's successful bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics has given the sports industry a boost, which in turn has also boosted Ispo Beijing.

A large number of major exhibitors are set to make their debut at the event in 2016, including Dynafit, Ice Peak, Kneissl, Kovea, Mueller Sports, 2XU, Ride, and 361 Degrees.

50 per cent of the brands at the event will be either European, American, or from the Asia-Pacific region, who include AlpinePro, Fjällräven, Odlo, Vaude, Pacsafe, Lowa, Thule, Black Diamond, Kolping, etc.

China will account for the other 50 per cent of the brands, among which are sports goods brands Kailas, Toread, Titallon, Mobi Garden, Scaler, Fire-Maple, Kingcamp, etc.

“This year will see even bigger international pavilions at the event, showcasing Austria, the Czech Republic, Korea, and Taiwan,” the organiser added.

Furthermore, there will be twice as much space dedicated to skiing this year, with exhibitors such as Halti, Nordica, Northland, Rossignol and Völkl representing this area of sport.

“This is reflective of the growing interest of the Chinese population in winter sports, as at present, seven million Chinese people ski or snowboard, with the number of ski tourists increasing each year,” they stated.

Due to its collaboration with Alpitec China, Ispo Beijing will present an entire value added chain under one roof, from infrastructure to product.

“In addition to new products from exhibitors, visitors to the trade fair can look forward to an extensive events and conference program, bringing them up-to-date with the latest trends,” the organiser noted.

The Asia Pacific Snow Conference will discuss two central themes, with one looking at the Chinese ski industry and opportunities offered by the 2022 Winter Olympics, and the other, tackling problems and prospects for ski resorts. (AR)
