As a perfect example, last year’s “Ötztaler Evening” with over 100 visitors shows what a Covid-compliant event can look like under strict safety precautions. It was held in August 2020 and the Corona pandemic has been keeping the world in suspense for a good six months. Big events are still out of the question. The unrivaled “Ötztaler Cycle Marathon” with 4000 participants from all over the globe had to be canceled as well. It would have been the 40th anniversary edition of the legendary road cycling race. Instead, the organizers invented the “Ötztaler SocialCycle Marathon” and every cyclist had the opportunity to complete the 238 km “Ötztaler” race course on his favorite home route. They all cycled for a good cause - the proceeds from this charitable campaign went in full to “Netzwerk Tirol hilft”.
On the occasion of this anniversary, a press event at Gurgl Carat was also on last year's program - the “Ötztaler Evening”. Thanks to a sophisticated prevention and catering concept, the event could be held as a face-to-face program applying the highest safety standards. The participants were safely guided through the building using our tried and tested “Covid Route”. Despite mandatory face masks and a mandatory minimum distance, there was a homely atmosphere and promised everyone involved a safe and atmospheric evening.
