What is LISTEX?

LISTEX is comprised of two major B2B snowsports trade events: the Summer Exchange and Winter Exchange.

The Summer Exchange is a one-day event taking place on 2 May, with the Winter Exchange taking place over two days on 26 & 27 September.

Both events encompass three main elements: Networking, the Trade Exchange and Forum sessions.

During our trade events at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, UK and European buyers (tour operators & travel agents) meet with snowsports Suppliers in the Trade Exchange via pre-scheduled meetings. The industry engages during insightful Forum sessions and networking is maximised throughout breakfasts, lunches, breaks and social events. Have a look at previous attendees of both events.

“Very instructive meetings, and in between, a great opportunity for networking.”

Catherine Breiller, Resort Promotion Manager, Tignes
