FIS Nordic World Ski Championship

Val di Fiemme, known across the world as a winter paradise of nordic skiing, hosted for the third time the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships from February, 20th until March 3rd. This biennial event is one of the top international ski competitions in the world.

In a world event such as Fiemme 2013 Nordic Ski World Championships, success cannot be taken for granted . Nevertheless, this sport world event thanks to organisers as the FIS, Trentino system’s actors and the numerous volunteers, was highly praised and appreciated. 

Also the weather agreed with the occasion: good snow and sunny days. The following data provide evidence of the success the event reached. 

In Fiemme 2013 participated: 

  • 701 athletes (in Oslo 2011's edition they were 580);
  • 55 nations (Oslo, 49); 
  • About 400.000 spectators (not counting those attending the last huge competition taking place in Lago di Tesero’s Cross County Stadium);
  • 8.137 accredited journalists, among which more than 1.100 international ones dealing with press, TV and radio;
  • 40.000 visitors that booked their stay in Val di Fiemme through the APTs (local tourist offices); 10.000 through Val di Fassa’s one; 8.000 through Valle di Fiemme’s nearby tourist agencies, 12.000 booking directly by themselves.

Furthermore, Fiemme 2013’s official website had an average of 371.000 daily visitors, with peaks of 500.000 as in the first day of the Nordic World Ski Championships.

The high digital and technological factors made the event a groundbreaking one, thanks to useful apps which guaranteed the best Fiemme 2013's tourist experience and to all services and information Trentino system deployed.

The international happening was also supported by social networks such as Facebook (with 122.000 contacts per day), Twitter (with an average of 1.600.000 contacts per day, with peaks of 2M visitors) and Youtube, where the video of Fiemme 2013’s official hymn was the most clicked among the 64 videos produced by the organization.

Obviously, a key role for the success of the event was played by Trentino sustainable infrastructures and by Val di Fiemme’s high level and environment-friendly sport structures, whose wood was certificated by PEFC.

The Trentino edition of the Nordic World Ski Championships was also characterised by the accessibility of its venues, which allowed, especially thanks to the app “Trentino accessibile”, disabled people to fully participate in such international event. 

The excellent results achieved during this 12-day event has thus been possible thanks to the joint efforts of organisers, volunteers and Trentino systems and they show once again the Province's skills in organising big events, deploying innovation and technology and mixing them with tourism and environment.

It should be highlighted that the set of services and infrastructures supplied for Fiemme 2013 will remain active and will be also implemented in the next big event Trentino is going to host in December 2013: the 26th Winter Universiade.
