With less than 24 hours to go until The LISTEX (London International Snowsports Trade Exchange) Virtual Event, Après Ski Bands is once again proud to be a part of this monumental networking event in the ski industry’s calendar. We are one of over 70 mountain industry professionals registered to connect through online meetings – from the comfort of our own offices / homes! We’ll also have the opportunity to join forums to hear carefully selected experts discuss this year’s theme of challenges, as well as routes to recovery, within the industry as a whole.
What is LISTEX?
LISTEX has been running since 2012, creating connections between over 400 buyers and suppliers in the snowsports industry.
LISTEX helps individuals and organisations in the snowsports industry grow their network, knowledge and ultimately, their business through three key event features; Networking, Trade Exchange and Forum sessions.
LISTEX is all about meeting, connecting, discussing business and putting a name to a face. The MTN platform allows you to network with colleagues and industry professionals via one-on-one pre-scheduled video calls.
The Trade Exchange
UK and international buyers (tour operators & travel agents) meet with snowsports suppliers and media partners in the Trade Exchange via pre-scheduled, one-to-one meetings. Suppliers include; tourist boards, hotels, ski schools, accommodation providers, transfer companies, airlines, activity and events operators and those providing a snowsports service or product.
From industry leaders to independent specialists, there’s no better way to grow your network than by attending the Online Trade Exchange and pre-scheduling 30-minute meetings with leading buyers across the winter mountain industry. All meetings can be booked from Tuesday 13th to Friday 16th October, within the Mountain Trade Network (MTN).
Hear from inspirational keynote speakers, industry experts, marketing specialists and social media masters covering relevant topics and discussion affecting the industry, live on 13th & 14th October. Alternatively, you can watch the recordings at a convenient time.
