November 19, 2018 - China

ISPO Beijing, the leading multi-segment B2B sports exhibition in Asia, is set to celebrate its 15th anniversary from January 16 to 19, 2019. It will take place in a new location at the China International Exhibition Centre (CIEC) in Beijing. Visitors can see product innovations from the winter sports, outdoor and health & fitness segments in three halls.

Many presentations and events will also take place during the four days of the trade fair. A ski resort tour, which will give visitors the opportunity to get to know the Chinese winter sports region, will round off the trade fair, according to an ISPO press release.

“For the past 15 years, ISPO Beijing has been the annual highlight for the Asia-Pacific sporting goods industry. We are looking forward to celebrating this anniversary with the industry and can’t wait to discover the product innovations and trends of the future,” Elena Jasper, ISPO Beijing project director said.

In addition to Chinese and international brands and manufacturers, such as Burton, Fjällräven and Kailas, young companies will showcase their products in the Start-up area. The best sports products for 2019/2020 can be found in the ISPO Award area while the textile innovations of the future will be displayed in the ISPO Textrends area. The E-Commerce Matchmaking-Programme will also be continued. This successful concept enables exhibitors and visitors to come together with China’s major ecommerce and department store providers and retail chains.

ISPO Academy is the platform for knowledge transfer. It will take place during ISPO Beijing and, together with the Asia Pacific Snow Conference, the China Sports Fashion Trend Forum and the Sports Industry Forum, will present a wide range of topics. Visitors to the event will also find ISPO Digitize, whose focus is on digital solutions for the sporting goods industry. Participants will take a guided tour to various winter sports destinations, including Fulong, Wanlong and Secret Garden, which are among some of the resorts that will host the Olympic Games in 2022.
