Groundbreaking textile trends and innovations clearly and fully demonstrated – ISPO TEXTRENDS is ISPO’s new platform for designers, product managers, and the media to discover the latest fabrics, fibers, trims, and accessories for sports, and outdoor apparel. It’s a unique sourcing and networking platform for sports and outdoor professionals searching for true innovation.
The ISPO TEXTRENDS Forum presented innovations from the textile and component sector for the second time during ISPO MUNICH. Close to 2,450 interested visitors – representing an increase of 63 percent – came to this year’s forum.
In 2013 ISPO launched ISPO TEXTRENDS as a new platform where designers, product managers and members of the media can preview and experience the most important developments from the fabrics, fibers and accessories categories for all sports and outdoor textiles. The industry benefits from ISPO TEXTRENDS as an opportunity for research, networking and sourcing.
Jose Fernandez, from Global Merino stated: "The participation at the ISPO TEXTRENDS forum created additional exposure for our company at ISPO MUNICH 2014. We had numerous instances of potential, new customers arriving at our stand with notes from the TEXTREND areas. This allowed us to start discussions with brands we might otherwise not have seen.”
Anyone unable to visit ISPO MUNICH will now have another chance to take advantage of the knowhow offered by ISPO TEXTRENDS, as ISPO has launched a special digital research tool, the ISPO TEXTRENDS app.
It is the only mobile textile library comprising all fibers and components selected by an international jury, including images, product and company information, as well as contact details. The app allows targeted searches and direct product comparisons. Developed as an effective, unique working tool it makes material research easier for designers and products managers, and thus creates more time for product development and design. Once downloaded, the app offers all functions even without Internet connection. The ISPO TEXTRENDS App is available now for iPad iOS 7.x in the itunes store.
