MEET THE EXPERTS
For years, the Asia Pacific Snow Conference has been accompanying each edition of Alpitec China, enriching the trade show with contents and insights on the most up-to-date issues of the currently booming Chinese winter industry. The topics are presented every year by well renowned speakers from in- and outside of China, who offer a different perspective on the overall situation of the sector and provide their professionally targeted audience with useful inputs.
At the APSC 2017 Mr. Wu (Wu Bin), Chief Strategy Officer of the Ski Resorts Division (Vanke Group) and Vice Chairman of the Vanke Songhua Lake Resort, was the first to take the stage and present his long awaited new Whitebook of 2016, confirming the positive trend in the development of the Chinese ski industry, and forecasting a further growth in what already is the largest winter sports market worldwide. Following Mr. Wu, a number of well renowned national and international speakers presented case studies of successful ski resort management worldwide, among which China, Italy, Japan, France and Korea. Another key topic of the APSC 2017 were the challenges Chinese mid and small ski resorts are currently facing in the ever changing environment of the coming years leading up to the 2022 Winter Olympics - the final panel discussion featuring industry experts from China did subsequently focus on possible insights and valuable conclusions that could be drawn from what has been heard and seen at the APSC 2017.
