Many of ISPO MUNICH’s lectures and seminars are held as part of the ISPO snow ice & rock summit, another very communicative element of many years. The best new products for the Outdoor market are honored with the ISPO AWARD. And with the EOCA exhibition as well as collaborations with many international organizations and publications, ISPO MUNICH is not only supporting ecology and sustainability, but committing itself to take great care of the future of the global Outdoor market.
