The Sitour company, part of the group, invented the alpine winter and summer advertising business and has been a partner in the cable car and advertising industry for over 40 years. Sitour not only acts as designer and producer of panorama information boards, ski slope signage and ski slope management systems, but is a reliable adviser in all issues of safety. The advertising spaces on all information tools are also a very popular means of communication for the advertising industry, and are appealing with their high recognition rates and contact information.
These three key areas are complemented by numerous additional products, which complete the concept of a total tourism solution provider. The company markets a unique tourism content pool filled with panorama pictures, weather data, hotel and event information to Internet portals and mobile phone operators, thus opening additional sales channels for its customers. By admitting various on-line forms of advertising feratel refinances its ongoing expenses.
