Due to current circumstances we decided to run SASTEX as a virtual event on June 23 2020 and make it free for all our Premium Members to help support Mountain Businesses through the COVID-19 crisis.

SASTEX Online Webinars June 23 2020
June 23 11:00 BST – State of the Mountain Market June 2020
Our most recent research reveals changes in current consumer behaviour with regard to the summer mountain market, with numerous insights into the market right now, key findings, analysis and recommended action points for all organisations working in mountain summer sports.
The research will answer several key questions;
- How is the market changing?
- How is consumer behaviour changing, and how do we respond
- What market segments are emerging, and how does their behaviour differ?
- How much is changing consumers interests and habits likely to impact on our industry in the near future
June 23 15:00 BST – Opportunities for the Summer Mountain Market Post Pandemic
The pandemic has brought many operators of summer mountain sports to a standstill. In such a bleak time, one positive to emerge is research that reveals a significant increase in consumer interest in areas such as health and wellness, fitness and the environment along with increased participation in activities including cycling, running, hiking and more.
How as an industry can we harness this shift in focus and increased participation in order to draw more people into taking summer mountain activity holidays in the future? Will consumer behaviour largely return to a pre-pandemic state without considered action?
Our panel will provide their views on the way ahead for the summer mountain sports industry
“SASTEX was a fantastic forum that helped facilitate fantastic new connections and potential business partnerships as well as learn more about the state of play across the industry. Combined with an engaging guest speaker in Squash Falconer and fascinating panel discussions, I can’t recommend the event enough.” Ben Lee, Bikecation
