ISPO AWARDS

With the ISPO Award, the internationally leading sports business network ISPO honors the outstanding products of the sports industry every year. Independent expert juries evaluate several hundred submissions according to precisely defined criteria, even from non-exhibitors at ISPO trade fairs. This top-class selection is a welcome orientation aid for both sports business professionals and consumers. This selection thus serves the specialist trade as a basis for decision-making when putting together the next range and the consumer increasingly as a purchasing argument. Both trust the neutral judgment of the jury.
