The leading figureheads, decision-makers and innovators of the ski industry are gathering in the legendary Austrian resort of Kitzbühel for the World Ski Awards 2019.

Taking place at the newly-refurbished A-ROSA Kitzbühel for the seventh consecutive year, the ceremony will bring together representatives from ski nations across Asia, Europe, Oceania and The Americas.

World Ski Awards is the leading programme in the global ski sector. Votes are cast by industry professionals and the public in a range of categories, ranging from best resorts and hotels to chalets and tour operators. The winners will be unveiled at a VIP ceremony on Saturday 23rd November 2019.

The gala reception will mark the highlight of a three-day alpine itinerary that will include exclusive networking events, dinners, sight-seeing, as well as private skiing on Kitzbühel’s legendary Hahnenkamm.

Sion Rapson, Managing Director, World Ski Awards, said: “It is with great excitement that we welcome the leaders of the global ski industry to Kitzbühel, the home of legends, for the seventh year in succession. World Ski Awards is the only global awards programme to celebrate the pinnacle of the ski tourism industry, and I look forward to joining our finalists for what promises to be an unrivalled weekend of exchanging ideas and acknowledging the achievements of the world’s finest ski brands.”
