Austria’s most international trade fair: “INTERALPIN is a driving force for alpine technologies“
In the 1970s, the trade fair for alpine technologies started life as a small product presentation as part of a ski slope congress. Over 40 years later, INTERALPIN is the undisputed world's leading trade fair in the industry and will welcome trade visitors from over 80 nations to its 21st event, from April 26 to 28, 2017. Tyrol’s status as a strong tourism region and the presence industry leaders in the surrounding area created a breeding ground for its development, report the organizers from Congress Messe Innsbruck (CMI). Summer tourism and urban transport are sectors with strong futures.
INTERALPIN Makes a Stateside Visit
As an associate member of NSAA, INTERALPIN is making its first visit to the USA to promote what it does.
Boasting more than 480 ski resorts and over 2,600 ski lifts, the USA is undoubtedly one of the world’s top countries for skiing. It is therefore no surprise that INTERALPIN, the leading international trade fair for Alpine technologies, is making its first visit in its role as a new associate member of the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), as Christian Mayerhofer, CEO of Congress Messe Innsbruck, explains: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to present Interalpin at the industry’s most important US event and to discuss the latest developments face to face with representatives of the biggest alpine skiing resorts in the country and the leading suppliers of Alpine technologies.”
Tailwinds for the INTERALPIN Golf Trophy 2016
The ropeway industry is perfectly able to cope with the challenge of strong winds, and the 70 participants in the 7th edition of the INTERALPIN Golf Trophy on the Olympia Golf Course Innsbruck-Igls were eager to rise to this challenge.
The golf enthusiasts from the ropeway and tourism industries came from Austria, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. The windy conditions did not do any harm to their golf swings; instead they enjoyed this competitive industry get-together with bright sunshine, culinary delights and the unique mountain scenery as a backdrop.
The tournament was held in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere with lots of opportunities to putt, chat and network. As Stefan Kleinlercher, project manager of INTERALPIN and initiator of the golf trophy put it: “The success story of INTERALPIN continues on the golf course. For the industry leaders the trophy is a lot of fun and an ideal networking opportunity.”
Interesting flight constellations consisting of representatives from the companies Doppelmayr, Technoalpin, Sitour or Chairkit played twice the 9 holes according to Stableford and competed for the popular industry trophy.
“Since the golf trophy has become a very entertaining yet informal event, we have decided to stage the tournament again next year”, states Director Christian Mayerhofer, CEO of Congress Messe Innsbruck as the organiser of the INTERALPIN trade show.
