AlpenCongress Berchtesgaden - 6 & 7 October

This year's your winter. your sport. Summit in Berchtesgaden takes place under the motto "SPORT meets WINTER - together. Consistent. Into the future.” instead. On October 6th and 7th, industry representatives and many well-known athletes will discuss the current economic challenges and the resulting tasks.
The point “affordable winter sports” plays a central role. Where are the limits of the economy? And what solutions are there to counteract this? These questions will be answered by Reinhard Klier (Deputy Chairman of the Association of Austrian Cable Cars), Valentin König (Chairman of Cable Cars Switzerland), Dr. Helmut Sartori (President of the Association of Cable Car Entrepreneurs in South Tyrol), Matthias Stauch (Chairman of the Association of German Cable Cars) and Peter Wagner (Chief Business Officer Alturos Destinations) will answer in an exciting panel discussion on Friday morning.

The aim of the initiative is clear and that is your winter. your sport. Summit from Thursday, October 6th to Friday, October 7th, 2022 in Berchtesgaden is exactly the right platform for this. It is aimed at all those who don't just want to talk, but want to act - for a sustainable future of winter sports.

At the Summit 2019 in Oberstdorf, the initiators, consisting of DSV, DSLV and Snowboard Germany, already set a strong ecological signal and jointly signed the UN declaration Sports for Climate Action Framework .

Under the motto “SPORT MEETS WINTER – Together. Consistent. Into the future.” At this year's summit we will discuss topics such as sustainability, energy, digitization and the current global economic challenges, their effects on the entire industry and the resulting common tasks. Together with representatives from science, sports, business, politics and the media, we not only want to talk, but also act and initiate very concrete solutions.

The congress will again take place under the scientific direction of Prof. Dr. Ralf Roth from the Institute for Outdoor Sports and Environmental Research at the German Sport University Cologne, who gave his keynote speech “What kind of future do we want? Challenges and Solution Approaches” provides important impulses from science at the beginning.

With over 300 guests , this is your winter. your sport. Summit is now a must for the start of winter. Prominent athletes such as Felix Neureuther, Viktoria Rebensburg, Hilde Gerg, Martina Ertl, Fritz Dopfer and Ramona Hofmeister will be guests and discuss the future of winter sports with experts.
