ISPO Debut

After a successful appearance at the Outdoor Retailer Show, e.dye® Waterless Color System™ management team traveled to ISPO Munich. Exhibitors from 2,800 companies involved in outdoor, health and fitness industries attracted more than 84,000 visitors from 120 countries over the four-day event.

The 2018 event marked e.dye’s debut at the world’s largest sports trade show. Meetings with prospective brand partners filled the show schedule. Detailed presentations described the benefits of e-dye’s innovative solution dye process. In a marketplace very concerned about environmental sustainability issues, e-dye’s ability to significantly reduce water pollution attracted attention.
