The ISPO Award is one of the most sought after in the sports business. Applications from exhibitors and brands for the next ISPO Award are now possible. The well-known seal of quality serves as a guide and basis for purchasing decisions for the media, dealers, and especially consumers in a diverse market. A new concept is to make the ISPO Award even more valuable. The most important change is that the prize will be awarded four times a year in future.
From now on, the award winners will not only be the focus of attention at OutDoor by ISPO and ISPO Munich, whose B2B trade show will take place from January 23 to 26, 2022, in Munich, they will also enjoy international coverage throughout the year thanks to a far-reaching, editorial review report on ISPO.com. Available in three languages, the article will best describe the product with text, images and video. ISPO will send the article to the target group, include it in editorial specials and curate it.
Exhibitors and brands applying for an award can also choose the article’s publication date. Of course, exhibiting the award-winning products and services at ISPO Munich or OutDoor by ISPO is also part of this package.
Another change is that innovative products and services can now be submitted all year round as there will be four judging rounds per year. Furthermore, the various winner levels have been canceled and the category selection has been dropped, giving brands much more flexibility.

ISPO Munich 2022 offers much more than the award: it gives people the possibility to finally meet up in person, after a long break due to the coronavirus, to make personal contact and to have inspiring discussions with colleagues and friends from the sports industry.
And this requires the right platform, as Jan Lorch, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) & Sustainability & CSR Manager Chef at VAUDE, confirms: “VAUDE plans to take part in ISPO Munich 2022 as it’s essential for us to exchange with people in physical form and not only limit ourselves to a digital format as was the case during the pandemic. We are convinced that ISPO is still the right platform for this with a high appeal within and beyond the sports industry.”
