CWT M&E Italy are proud and honored to announce that Cortina 2021 Foundation chose us to be a partner in hosting this new prestigious international event. FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2021 is without a doubt the most important sporting event taking place in Italy over the next three years, and we will ensure it is a great success. After all, it is not just about the sport, it is also the experiences, passion, and raw emotions – it is in our DNA.
Going back to June 2016, the FIS – Fédération Internationale de Ski Congress were in Cancun, Mexico. Where they chose Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, to be the hosts of the Ski World Championships 2021. Bringing the iconic winter sport back to the much-loved Dolomites, which is no stranger to the championships having hosted back 1932 and 1956 as a part of the World Olympic Games. It is a great opportunity for us at CWT Meetings & Events to display our “know how” and expertise in various sporting events, after the 2018 ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Milan.
The championships predicts a large number of attendees and athletes from more than 70 countries over 14 days, requiring a large amount of support and smooth execution. As a result, we have organized the accommodation needs of participants, thanks to a collective agreement with the Cortina Hotels Association. In addition, our specialized sports team, CWT M&E Sports, will take care of the end-to-end organization of the event. As part of the development to drive improved infrastructure to support the event, there will be the addition of sustainable development and the use of renewable energy. As for the ISU World Figure Skating Championship, we are building a platform each stakeholder can engage through to create extensive value.
On the #RoadToCortina2021, I look forward to making CWT M&E the major team players over the next year and a half, supporting and fully executing an exciting and show-stopping event. One that will leave attendees and athletes with great memories for years to come. I am sure it will be a great experience!
