More than 300 exhibitors will exhibit at OutDoor by ISPO at the Munich Order and Convention Center. So there are a lot of new products, innovations and trends to discover. But also, the OutDoor by ISPO program offers many highlights – here is an overview.
With numerous workshops, conferences and industry walks, OutDoor by ISPO offers food for thought, inspiration and space for exchange at the highest professional level. Now is the time to gain an overview and plan.
1. Attend the OutDoor by ISPO Conference
On Monday and Tuesday, there are numerous sessions focusing on the circular economy. How does a regenerative value chain become the engine for economic success? The ISPO team and NOW Partners are exploring this question and highlighting opportunities for the industry to simultaneously strengthen supply chains, customer relationships, and financing options. Speakers include, for example, Hunter Lovins. Besides being one of NOW Partners’ managing partners, she is the co-founder of the groundbreaking Rocky Mountain Institute and the author of pioneering Natural Capitalism and 16 other books. Or Dr. Martin Frick, director of the Global Office of the United Nations World Food Programme, who recently co-chaired the Global Food System Summit and before that held a key role in the COP, the UN’s top climate body. And – with a completely different background – Vinod Kumar, the CEO of Vodafone Business. The former leader of Tata Communications is an expert in technology trends, supply chain challenges and how to form very diverse leaders into high-performing teams.
