Changed Weekday Schedule For ISPO MUNICH 2015
Next year’s extremely busy calendar of events at Messe München’s exhibition center makes it necessary to change the weekday schedule for ISPO MUNICH 2015. Therefore, the weekday schedule for the international leading trade show for the sporting goods industry will be changed one time only to Thursday, February 5 to Sunday, February 8, 2015.
Regrettably, the densely booked calendar at the Munich exhibition center for next year made it impossible to retain the usual sequence of weekdays due to organization issues. The modified weekday schedule for ISPO MUNICH 2015 allows Messe München GmbH to offer its exhibitors the expected smooth and secure set-up of their exhibit booths. Tobias Gröber, Head of Business Unit Consumer Goods Exhibitions at Messe München, explains: “Our primary focus is on our customers’ requirements. Upon consideration of all aspects including date, duration and weekday sequence we decided on the best possible compromise. By providing our customers with advance information we hope to offer them the opportunity to prepare accordingly.” Lastly, the unusual step to modify the weekday schedule is also based on the experience of other leading exhibitions that have successfully handled scheduling issues like these for years.
However, ISPO MUNICH 2014 is not limited to just generating attention for the topic of “health” but also wants to enlighten and educate: for the duration of the exhibition the all-day side event program offers information on the selection from the “Health and Fitness” segment. A variety of professional lectures, forums, panel discussions and presentations by industry experts will share expertise on the key topics “sports shoe and gaming console” and “workplace health management”. Meet & greets with athletes as well as industry get-togethers invite participants to network and gain new contacts.
The effects of the changed weekday sequence will come under detailed evaluation after ISPO MUNICH 2015, and will be further analyzed in close cooperation with the sports industry. The goal is to ensure he best possible event schedule for the future.
