Interalpin, the world's leading platform for the industry, was held at Messe Innsbruck on 15 - 17 April 2015. With approximately 23,000 trade visitors from almost 80 countries, the attendance record was broken again. Besides the well-established regions including the US, France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria, emerging markets such as Kazakhstan, China, Argentina and Russia were very well represented. More than 60% of the visitors came from overseas, further testament to the international profile of Interalpin.
Interalpin also confirmed its position as the most popular platform for new developments. The offering of innovations and the overview afforded of the industry as a whole are the key to satisfaction for trade visitors. Interalpin received a correspondingly positive rating of 90%. This year, snowmaking, equipment for creating and maintaining pistes and all aspects of passenger transport attracted particular attention. Solutions for summer operations were also more numerous. Apart from the best price-performance ratio, visitors were especially interested in questions of quality, safety and environmental sustainability.
Sixty percent of the visitors came with specific investment plans. This also suggests that there will be a big increase in business enquiries after the trade fair.
The range of exhibits at Interalpin was extraordinary. No other comparable trade fair in the world is attended by so many key players. The approximately 650 exhibitors from almost 50 countries also included many young, innovative businesses presenting attractive solutions in a wide range of applications.
This combination is one of the reasons why Interalpin is the most popular forum, enabling visitors to learn all about the very latest innovations and make the best contacts.
"As an organizer of Interalpin and a partner to the trade, I am delighted to see so many delighted exhibitors and visitors in Innsbruck. We can also be very satisfied with the growing internationalism and total investment volume. Forty years of Interalpin stands for trust, shared success and much more. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all our exhibitors and partners. We are already looking forward to the next Interalpin, which will take place from 26 - 28 April 2017,” says Christian Mayerhofer, Managing Director of Congress und Messe Innsbruck GmbH.
