Since the winter season 2012/13, LEITNER ropeways has been a sponsor of the famous Hahnenkamm Races. The event is now called “Hahnenkamm Races transported by LEITNER ropeways”. The expansion of the partnership with Kitzbühel in conjunction with the sponsoring of the Hahnenkamm Races offers an incredible platform for LEITNER ropeways. The event, running since 1931, attracts around 100,000 spectators to the downhill and slalom slopes.
LEITNER ropeways has been a Premium Partner of the Ski World Cup in Alta Badia since 2014. The international specialist in ropeway systems is the sponsor of the VIP area. The cooperation is based on a successful business relationship dating back many years between the Alta Badia ski resort and LEITNER ropeways. In the exclusive LEITNER ropeways VIP Lounge, two top chefs from South Tyrol will create unusual gastronomic specialties under the motto
"Fair Cooking – fair & local". The initiative is supported by the World Fair Trade Organization, WFTO. While the name LEITNER ropeways stands for high-tech ropeway systems and top quality, the WFTO aims for greater fairness in world trade. Both are united in the fact that they have a regional base and global networks.
The cooperation between LEITNER ropeways and Swarovski® brings a sparkling highlight to the ropeway market. For the modern 3S gondola lift ‘Matterhorn Glacier Ride’ in Zermatt (CH), four of the 25 cabins were embellished with Swarovski® crystal beads in an exterior design created specifically for the new ropeway. Swarovski ‘Crystal Rocks’ were chosen for this application. For the first time in the history of LEITNER ropeways, thousands of Swarovski® crystal beads adorn the cabins and also decorate the lettering on the comfortable seats. As part of the Ingredient Branding Programme, we can now work with our customers to design their cabins with Swarovski® crystals.
LEITNER ropeways is Premium Partner of the TirolBerg during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2017 in St. Moritz and 2019 in Åre. PRINOTH and DEMACLENKO are Top Partners of the TirolBerg. The TirolBerg is part of the Alpine World Ski Championships since 15 years. It is the ideal meeting place for entrepreneurs, politicians as well as representatives of sports, tourismus and media.
LEITNER ropeways is an exclusive partner of United Smart Cities (USC), a joint OiER and UNECE initiative with the primary objective of furthering the process of sustainable urban development in cities. USC supports growing cities, especially in transition and developing countries, on their way to new technologies and efficient resource use. Among other things, this is achieved through joint measures by cities, the private sector and public sector, to solve traffic problems in cities and make passenger transport efficient. One of these measures is construction of urban ropeways. Thanks to precision technologies like the innovative LEITNER DirectDrive system, LEITNER ropeways offers its customers individual solutions with maximum quality, comfort and innovation. The increasing complexity and the need for sustainable solutions in urban spaces makes the partnership with USC extremely important.
