With the current developments of the coronavirus pandemic, the execution of ISPO Munich as a hybrid event – a combination of digital and on-premises events – cannot be reliably ensured.
For Klaus Dittrich, the Chairman and CEO of Messe München, the move to a completely digital event is a logical step: “Both the customers as well as we as host have high expectations for the internationality and quality of ISPO Munich. Under the current conditions, we cannot fulfill these expectations. With ISPO Munich Online, we are enabling all customers around the world to participate in the event. At the same time, we can create formats that integrate new target groups. I am sure that in February we will experience an event, which will offer digital industry discussions of the highest caliber.”
