Special help is being made available to a larger number of sports retailers from several countries wishing to go to Ispo Munich, the international trade show scheduled to take place on Feb. 3–6, 2019. The program, called “Altogether to Munich,” is intended to support sports retailers from Austria, Italy, Poland, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. in their planning for the world's largest sporting goods fair, similarly to what has been done for French retailers in recent years. The package covers everything from registration and hotel bookings to arranging appointments and trade fair tours in their own language. In addition to providing support with travel formalities, the program aims to facilitate contacts for brands and distributors and includes a retail tour of the Bavarian capital. It also provides a further networking platform through its evening program, along with a country-specific online platform for easy appointment making and networking in the run-up to the trade fair. More than two-thirds of the visitors who attend Ispo Munich every year are related to retail.
