South Tyrol is all about the outdoors and is considered to be one of the most important focal points in Alpine technologies. The World Cup races on the Saslong are one of the places where these technologies are brought to bear with a perfectly groomed racing course. South Tyrolâ€™s location agency BLS (â€śBusiness Location SĂĽdtirolâ€ť) is taking advantage of this weekâ€™s events in Val Gardena/GrĂ¶den to present the companies and sectors it is promoting and developing.
Perfectly groomed slopes and modern lifts are a product of decades of expertise, a highly qualified workforce, research and development and, most importantly, proximity to the market. South Tyrols international market leaders include Leitner, Technoalpin and Saleva, which are manufacturing lifts, snowmaking technology and functional apparel, respectively. BLS has a dossier with all the relevant information on Alpine technology it is making available to the international media during the World Cup week in Val Gardena/GrĂ¶den.
Coupled with BLS is the trade show Prowinter-Alpitec taking place from April 9th â€“ 11th, and turning Bolzano/Bozen into the capital of winter sports and Alpine technologies. The dual trade-show is setting a benchmark for the entire world of mountain sports. The last edition taking place in 2010 attracted 9,300 visitors from 24 countries.
