Monday August 7, 2017 - Email this article to a friend

Dates have been announced for the 2nd European Mountain Travel Summit. But what's the event all about? NEW

Over the three days 250 senior executives from the international
 mountain travel industry meet for networking, business and brainstorming.  

Delegates share experiences, insights and knowledge through a series of general sessions, speaker presentations, panel discussions and an Alpine ski networking day.   

The B2B snowsports information and marketing event takes place in the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana January 9th -11th, 2018.    

PlanetSKI was at the inaugural event last year and we hope to return next January.  

There will be three general sessions at the 2018 gathering.  
  • Destination tourism marketing and distribution.
  • Staying competitive in the global market of Alpine tourism.
  • Innovation and technology in relationship to driving new business, improving efficiencies and staying ahead of the curve.

"We were thrilled with last year's inaugural EMTS and received a great response from the industry, as it filled a need in the market," said Bob Sullivan, President, Northstar Travel Group that runs the event.

"Our goal is to bring together senior leaders to
 discuss critical issues and challenges within the mountain travel industry, bring about solutions, and in turn, make 
the industry more successful."

"We are excited to have EMTS back in Crans-Montana for a second year," said Bruno Huggler, Director, Crans-Montana Tourisme
& Congress.

"As a premier mountain resort in the Swiss Alps, Crans-Montana is a natural fit for our destination and we cannot wait to once again share our amazing views, activities, cultural experiences, and gastronomy with all of the attendees."

And last year we took to the slopes of Crans-Montana after the event as we were on a road and rail trip in Switzerland at the time:

And we fully intend to be back again next year for EMTS 2018.  

Working hard and then playing hard - it's our rule of thumb here at Planetski ;-)
