Sports exhibition a ISPO 2018 Munich

Postby abel » Thu Jan 04, 2018 9:24 am

I was looking at the Munich ISPO 2018 exhibitors list for Kitesurfing equipment, but I couldn't find one :( .
I'm wondering if Kitesurfing companies participate in that show?
If not, where and when are the international shows for kitesurfing equipment?

Sometimes kite companies exhibited there...I went once when mainly North was exhibitor.

Few go to the Boot in Duesseldorf, but mainly shops who sell their left overs.

I think biggest kite exhibitions are now on the beach...in Germany during the World Cup and the German tour stop in St Peter-Ording.

Biggest international fair I know is the surf expo in Orlando in September. Not sure if it is for open public, but rather for shops and industry.

Thanks Toby.
I searched the web for kitesurfing expos and hardly could find any with more than three kitesurfing companies (their participation is mainly for other areas of the company)
Is this an indication of the amount of kiters out there??? or given that it is a relative new market, the digital media replaces the "old" expos?

Best expos are on the beach...

I think for a company it is more valuable to do a importers and shop meeting on the beach where you can test yourself.

Same with testivals for buyers.

But look at the date...all 2018 gear has been released up to 6 months ago...what should they exhibit? Old gear by now...and too early for 2019 gear.

Therefore Surf expo in Orlando is better, since September the new gear just comes to the market. Plus Surf expo is very well visited by almost all shops from the US and Canada...and I assume Central and South America as well.
