What is the LISTEX Forum?

Immerse yourself over two-days of discussion, debate, inspiration and innovation with leading snowsports industry experts in our Forum sessions.

LISTEX Forum sessions take place alongside the Trade Exchange and provide an interest for those not taking part in meetings. Hear from our inspirational keynote speakers, snowsports industry experts, digital marketing specialists and social media masters covering relevant topics and discussion affecting our industry. A number of Forum sessions will be held outside of the Trade Exchange to allow everyone to attend.
