The growth in consumer demand for customised sports equipment and apparel is a key industry trend which presents exciting commercial opportunities for manufacturers, suppliers and retailers alike. To capitalise on this fast-growing demand, Roland DG is exhibiting at ISPO Munich, the leading global trade fair for the sporting goods industry, with in excess of 2,700 exhibitors and 80,000 expected visitors.

Digital print production is facilitating the move from mass production to mass personalisation across a wide range of products within the sporting goods market, creating a truly engaging customer experience and generating added value for brands and retailers.
