Preparations for Interalpin show 2013 going well

7. January 2013

Interalpin is one of the world's largest and most important trade fairs for cable car technology, alpine equipment and winter snow. International exhibitors are set to showcase the latest products and materials for cable car operator, winter services and the rescue services in the alpine area.

Months before Interalpin opens on 10 April 2013 at the Innsbruck Exhibition Centre in Austria, the world’s leading trade fair for alpine technologies has already reported an excellent number of exhibitor registrations. With many new companies enrolled, the international profile of the event looks set to be raised once more.

New attractions in the show’s outdoor areas for the year-round use of ski regions are already planned. As for urban mobility, ropeways and cable drawn railways between cities and towns are becoming increasingly important in the show’s preparations.

The show sees the return of longstanding exhibitors Doppelmayr, Leitner and Bartholet, who are all groundbreaking innovators in their specialist field of cable car technology. Doppelmayr is building a cable car structure with three cabins, each capable of holding ten people, between the capital city, La Paz, and El Alto in Bolivia. Construction work on a cable linear shuttle in Venedig has also been underway since early 2010. In 2012 the company also completed work on a cable car crossing the Thames in London.

Leitner Poma of America is building the new Roosevelt Island tramway over the East River in Manhattan. Leitner is also building the “Skylink- Minimetro” at the Frankfurt airport. It will serve as the connection between the futuristic complex “The Squaire” and a nine-story parking structure.

In 2010 the company Bartholet completed a modern aerial tram connecting a shopping centre in the town centre with a local recreation area in Labem (Czech Republic). These projects as well as the new cable railway in Viseu in Portugal continue to underline the growing importance of cable car technology in urban areas.

Interalpin 2013 will take place for the first time at the totally refurbished Innsbruck Exhibition Centre offering a greatly improved infrastructure in a number of areas such as clearly structured halls, easier delivery, new entry areas, accessibility and air-conditioning.

The Austrian Uphill-Convention will take place on 10 April at the Innsbruck Exhibition Centre, the O.I.T.A.F. Seminar on 11 April at the Innsbruck Congress Centre.

The Interalpin 2013 will be held on 10-12 April and hopes to increase the numbers of both exhibitors and visitors this year, thus growing its position as the worldwide leading trade fair for the ropeway industry.
