Table tennis, ice hockey and other smaller sports will be a focus of BaSpo, a new German balls sports exhibition for the trade and the general public due to be held for the first time in the Westfalenhallen in Dortmund in 2018. Providing a greater stage for sports that are relatively under-represented at Ispo, BaSpo is hoping to attract 300 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors over the three days from next June 29 to July 1. In addition to being a trade fair, BaSpo will allows clubs and visitors to try out different sports activities and new products, and to meet sporting stars. Among exhibitors committed to the new fair, the organizers mention Derbystar and Teamsport Philipp, a sports retailer that will be working with Adidas.
