From January 16th to 19th, Alpitec China showcases the complete range of mountain and winter technologies in Beijing’s brand new China International Exhibition Center (CIEC New Venue). The annual Asia Pacific Snow Conference and the second edition of APSC Technical Workshop complete the exhibition offering by giving detailed technical insights. As always, Alpitec China is taking place together with ISPO Beijing, the leading multi-segment sports exhibition in Asia.
Beijing, 16 January 2019 – The eleventh edition of Alpitec China offers its international trade visitors both something new and something well-tried and proven: New is the venue, the prestigious new China International Exhibition Center CIEC - but proven is the character of the international trade show as a meeting place for the winter sports industry. "With Alpitec China, we have been accompanying China's rapid development in winter sports since 2009, and for the 11th edition we bring again all the international key players in mountain and winter technologies to Beijing," emphasizes Thomas Mur, Director of the Fiera Bolzano Exhibition Center. "Together with our partner ISPO Beijing, we have built up a unique format here in recent years: In addition to an overview of the most innovative products in the winter sports industry, our information program offers valuable technical know-how and important background information for winter sports industry professionals".
Alpitec China and ISPO Beijing: winter sports market at 360 degrees
In Hall E3 of the new China International Exhibition Center, ski resort managers and decision makers will be able to find everything they are looking for: from ropeway systems, snowmakers, snow grooming machines, snow mobiles, ski rental and safety equipment, ticketing and admission systems to ski resort planning and real estate investment consulting. This year's exhibitors come from 12 different countries, among them the most important key players in the international winter technologies market. The exhibition offering of Alpitec China is completed by ISPO Beijing, focusing especially on winter sports equipment, fashion and accessories, which results in a 360 degrees overview for the Asian winter sports sector.
Industry insights: Asia Pacific Snow Conference and APSC Technical Workshop
In addition to the actual trade fair where winter sports professionals can see, touch and thus understand and value the market’s latest innovations, Alpitec China’s information program is getting more and more important as it provides both inspiration and networking opportunities.
The Asia Pacific Snow Conference is an absolute highlight for operators of ski resorts and the entire winter sports industry. On 17 January 2019, international speakers will take a close look at the most recent developments in international winter sports: The latest data from the "White Book 2018", the only data collection that analyses the ski industry in China, is eagerly awaited. Afterwards, the focus will be on the most important international ski resorts. Several case studies of indoor and outdoor ski resorts as well as of "crossover communities", combinations of winter sports with other sports, provide the necessary practical relevance.
Since technical and safety aspects are gaining in importance as Chinese winter sports destinations are acting more and more professionally, Alpitec China launched the APSC Technical Workshop for the first time last year. The second edition of the APSC Technical Workshop on 18 January 2019 builds on this success: The morning will be devoted to various aspects of safety, with expert presentations on slope monitoring and staff training, lift evacuation, lighting systems for night skiing and safety planning for ski events. In the afternoon, the presentations on snow depth measurement systems, sustainable slope preparation and the selection of the appropriate snow groomer for China will shed light on various factors of slope preparation.
Participation in the Asia Pacific Snow Conference and the APSC technical workshop is free of charge.
