From route setting to workforce shortages: VERTICAL PRO and partners to provide expertise

Programme 2023

Route Setting: Creative and Functional

What does it take to create lastingly attractive routes and boulders in artificial climbing facilities? This is the question that the DAV's panel discussion will seek to answer while shedding light on the central tasks and concerns of climbing and bouldering halls – from organization to equipment. The DAV program's other presentations will also revolve around sport and fun on the wall, with experts on hand to provide insights and inspiration for creative route setting and to address the role of social media, too. The panels will also explore the topic of inclusion and the requirements for target group-specific route setting for people with and without disabilities. The goal, of course, is affording climbing fun to all.

Adventure Parks, Climbing Gardens & More: IAPA Event Program

The shortage of skilled labor is affecting the outdoor sports and adventure industry, too. This November, speakers from the IAPA will talk about possible solutions to this challenge. Presentations on inspection and maintenance will also be on the program. From zip lines and safety harnesses to IT solutions, the prestigious IAPA Innovation Award, which will be presented at Vertical Pro this year, will highlight the industry's ingenuity.

Safety First: FISAT and DRK Mountain Rescue

Whether at work or in leisure time, safety and hazard prevention on and around ropes will be of paramount importance at Vertical Pro. The program of events will showcase the professional expertise of FISAT and others in the context of commercial applications and that of DRK Mountain Rescue Württemberg in matters related to rescuing at height or in rugged terrain. Together with co-exhibitor Tyromont, the mountain rescue service’s supplier of technical equipment, these high-altitude professionals will provide skillful demonstrations of operations and rescue scenarios at the container tower and obstacle course.
