Andorra's commitment to hosting great international events reaches its pinnacle in the Skiing World Cup. Andorra Telecom, as technology partner, is among the list of institutions and companies that dedicate their time and effort to a competition whose global media impact puts Andorra squarely on the map of great ski destinations.
For the second time, Grandvalira had the honour of hosting an event in the Alpine Skiing World Cup 2016 after the great organisational success it attained in its first experience in 2012. In the last edition, two events were disputed in Andorra: the Women's Super Giant and Women's Alpine Combined.
The right way of pulling off an event of this type, one that's broadcast around the world, requires a top-notch technological infrastructure. The task of Andorra Telecom focuses on just that, the connectivity of the thousands of people taking part or attending the competition. To give an example, along with the 10,000 spectators who watched the two events on the slopes, there were another additional 1,400 and 1,200 who followed the opening ceremony and the distribution of race bibs, respectively, not to mention 900 VIPs. All in all 1,697 were accredited, 192 of whom were journalists from various countries. The event was broadcast live on 15 channels and rebroadcast on 35 more.
