The AlpNet – Network currently unites European tourism partners from France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
With the founding of AlpNet, eight of the leading tourist organisations in the Alps have decided to confront the global challenges together, and in so doing to strengthen alpine tourism in all its facets. In the short term, the focus will be on four areas which are equally important for all destinations: the future of winter sports; new alpine summer attractions; sustainability and added value; and new markets for holidays in the Alps.
The yearly highlight is the annual event "theALPS", in 2015 taking place the 7th and 8th September in Moena, Val di Fassa, Trentino. The focus of this year's theALPS is on Alpine Biking Tourism.
The key elements in this innovative event, namely theALPS Symposium, theALPS Award and theALPS Trading Room, gives those participating a multi-purpose platform for making new sales contacts, strengthening corporate networks, exchanging information and adopting new ideas. It's all about further developing and boosting sustainable Alpine tourism.
The current leading Alpine tourist regions are: BE!Tourism, Graubünden, Luzern Tourism, Rhône-Alpes, South Tirol, Tirol, Trentino and Valais.
