STMI, the European buying group spearheaded by Groupe Go Sport and Hervis Sports, plans to give a further push to its pan-European buying synergies and partnerships with key brands. As a new step, it is seeking to bundle some of the members' private label programs in areas such as outdoor, starting with the spring/summer 2017 collections. An Italian buying group, Sport Point Group, has just joined STMI alongside the founding members, Forum Sport in Spain, SportXX in Switzerland and 21sportsgroup in Germany. More on STMI in SGI Europe.
