All key players and technology leaders of the global ropeway and mountain technology industries presented world firsts and groundbreaking product innovations at Interalpin 2019 in Innsbruck. Interalpin was thus able to consolidate its position as the world’s leading trade fair for alpine technologies with around 29,000 trade visitors from 117 countries. Now the team at Congress Messe Innsbruck is starting with the preparations for next year’s 24th Interalpin. “As a unique industry platform, Interalpin brings together premium exhibitors – from key players to smart start-ups – and international decision-makers from ropeway operating companies worldwide,” says Christian Mayerhofer, Managing Director of Congress Messe Innsbruck (CMI). The decisive factor for the success of Interalpin and its status as the “leading international trade fair for alpine technologies” is above all the professional quality of the attendees, as confirmed in an independent survey conducted at last year’s event: Around two thirds of visitors were top decision-makers in the industry.
Targeted product diversity
At next year’s Interalpin, from April 14 to 16, project manager Stefan Kleinlercher is expecting about 650 exhibitors from over 50 countries. “They will be presenting their innovative products and services in the fields of uphill installations, snowmaking systems, snow grooming and winter services, access systems, digital solutions, mountain safety, summer attractions and much else besides.” The trend-setting role of Interalpin as the world’s number-one mountain trade show is to be consolidated at the newly established Interalpin Inspiration Days: “The great interest shown in the sessions in 2019 underscores the forward-looking thinking that is typical of the industry and encourages us to develop this format further,” Kleinlercher concludes.
