The 17/18 season has barely started but the key partner for the press lunch at Ski Launch 2018 has already been confirmed as the Bern region of Switzerland. Thank you and we look forward to working with you. 

 

The 2018 event will be one week later than previous years to avoid the clash with children returning to school. This is a decision we have made in conjunction with Inghams, Where to Ski & Snowboard and France Montagnes so all these events will tie in as usual.

 

There will also be some important changes to the way the press lunch runs to ensure it is enjoyable and useful for all concerned.

Ski Launch 2015 

On the 8th September 2015 the ski industry gathered in London (at the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington) to collectively launch the 2015/16 ski season to the UK's ski press.

 

Organised by Paddy PR, Ski Launch 2015 started with breakfast, sponsored by ski specialist insurance providers MPI Brokers. This then led into the morning's 'industry only' session, moderated by James Cove of PlanetSki, where Frank McCusker of The Ski Club of Great Britain talked about customer loyalty and the new .ski high level domain was officially launched.

 

Following coffee (sponsored by .ski) Lucy Huxley of Travel Weekly outlined her thoughts on working with travel agents and the need for a unified ski industry body that could help grow the market in a similar way to the cruise industry. The following panel debate expanded on this and it quickly became clear that the debate was going to run into, and beyond, lunch.

 

As delegates were busily registering their .ski domains we were joined by the great and good from the UK ski press for an aperitif. This led into a specially prepared three-course lunch, sponsored by Pierre et Vacances. Ski industry delegates changed tables after each course so that they could speak to as many of the attending journalists as possible.

 

As the lunch started to wind down over coffee, the debate over an industry body, the .ski domains, working with travel agents and more seemed to pick up and was still going at 5pm.

 

As an event organiser it was very gratifying to see that there were still several ski operators and journalists talking, networking and generally enjoying life long after the event should have concluded.

 

Watch this space for details of Ski Launch 2016 next September. It will be bigger and better!
