Go to Market call at ISPO Munich Online
Tuesday 2nd February 11:00-12:00
In order to engage more colleagues in the important subjects being explored by our Go to Market project (led by Head of Retail Peter Ottervanger), we have decided to open up the scheduled call during ISPO Munich Online to a wider audience.
To remind you, the goal of the Go to Market project is to create a industry platform to discuss the go to market cycle and, subsequently, product delivery flows. Identifying 'pain points' in the value chain between retail and brands is an integral part of the workstream, with the aim of finding collective solutions for a more sustainable approach for everyone.
Through this work, we want to stimulate cooperation in the industry between retailers and brands (and visa versa). During the call, Peter will update those who attend on the progress of the project so far, and participants will share experiences and ideas, and discuss ideas for improving the go to market cycle for the benefit of all in the sector.
Use the link and password below to join the call, and please share the details with relevant colleagues.

Consumer participation in outdoor activities
Monday 1st February 11:00-12:00
Pippa Goodman from Foresight Factory
In 2020, a detailed European consumer segmentation study of outdoor participation was undertaken on behalf of the European Outdoor Group (EOG) and the It’s Great Out There Coalition, by consumer trends specialist the Foresight Factory.
The Foresight Factory will present key insights, focusing on:
- Frequency of participation in the main outdoor activity segments - walking and running, water, snow, cycling, urban and mountain activities. This will include demographics and behaviours as well as lapsed users and new users, interested in trying activities for the first time.
- Four target segments with growth opportunities and market potential - all open to being encouraged to do more outdoor activities.
The power of connection - building and utilising a brand community
Thursday 4th February 11:00-12:00
Josie Fabian from brandwave
The world is changing and as a result we are more connected now than ever before. On paper, ‘being connected’ sounds great, but as brands digitise they risk losing community and the power it holds. In this talk, we will share top tips from some of the world's leading brands. We will be covering how they are keeping connected with their community and will be giving you access to their strategies for success. This presentation will provide insight on how to build a community both physically and digitally, and harness its power to enhance the bottom line.

Using Higg MSI to Understand Scope 3 Raw Material Emissions
Wednesday 3rd February 2021 14.00hrs – 15.30hrs: [Climate Action Programme]
Many organisations across the value chain are currently getting their heads around measuring the carbon footprint of the raw materials they buy. Based on W.L. Gore’s carbon journey so far, this workshop aims to discuss how the Higg MSI can be used to calculate an organisation’s raw material carbon footprint (Scope 3/ Purchased Goods). Looking ahead, we’ll also be discussing potential future ways of getting credit for individual supply chain reductions in carbon emissions.
