It is not just the weather that makes Gurgl, the Diamond of the Alps, shine on this sunny day in July - the opening of Gurgl Carat also contributes to this unique scenery. Due to the pandemic, the official opening ceremony was a long time coming but now the congress and event center has been duly inaugurated. The ceremony, including the blessing of the building, was celebrated with many guests from the fields of tourism, business and politics. The Gurgl men's choir, together with Sölden’s brass band, provided the musical framework for the event.
“Gurgl Carat is currently Austria’s most modern congress center. The highlight is certainly the 100 m² screen with full HD projection. Thanks to the spectacular event technology, new formats such as hybrid events can also be implemented very easily. This gives us a big advantage compared to other long-established event centers. The biggest plus in Gurgl is the hotels’ high quality (21 four-star hotels in a village with only 400 residents) and the proximity of all accommodations to Gurgl Carat in the village center. Our guests can walk to most hotels in no more than five minutes, and the mountain gondola is just 200 meters away. Once they have arrived in Gurgl, they really do not need a car or bus anymore. They can fully concentrate on the topics and the event.”
Felix Kupfer, Managing Director of Gurgl Carat
