Great premiere with a lot of very positive feedback
At ISPO MUNICH 2013, this new presentation platform had its premiere and generated plenty of interest among industry, designers, product managers and international b2b publications.
With more than 180 products selected from 45 international companies and more than 1,500 professional visitors in 4 days, ISPO Textrends Forum was the main place to discover the most innovative fabrics, fibers and accessories dedicated to sports and outdoor.
Participants in this new platform were enthusiastic about the results.
For example Alexandra Araujo from LMA in Portugal said: “For our company LMA, the ISPO Textrends Forum 2013 increased the value of our fabrics and knitwear, even though we are accustomed to do a lot of research before the presentation to the jury. To us, the concept of this forum - which is not merely a style forum but involves a technical jury, international and independent - is simply admirable.“
Similar positive reactions came from Akiko Ichimi of Amaterrace from Japan: “We haven’t spent money on advertisement before. So our company name was not well known. But this award created many possibilities to start business with new customers. ISPO Textrends can open doors to new customers. But only if you participate.”
