FREE BUS IN THE PARK

During the period of lockdown caused by the COVID19 emergency, the provincial Public Transport Agency looked for innovative solutions to meet the new organisational and resident/worker needs. One mode of transport that worked perfectly was the one called °call the bus°, a Demand Responsive Transport service.The end of the lockdown and the slow resumption of travel made it possible to rethink this mode of transport not only for work but also for tourism.This new initiative has been strongly encouraged by the mayors of the Valli del SOL Municipalities, the Development Agency GAL Genovese, the Beigua Geopark and financed through the European project Alpine Space Smart Villages.

Regional and local fairs’ digitalization

Due to the covid-19 emergency it was necessary to face the need to carry out some events of territorial promotion through the digital mode, thus a new RSG was born consisting of two LAGs, Gal Genovese Development Agency and LAG Verde Mare, a company of digital services and two Expo Committees: Expo Alta Val Trebbia and Expo Fontanabuona Tigullio.This is an innovative solution that has ensured the creation of a digital platform for the promotion of artisan and tourist activities as part of these two local events, including EXPO FONTANABUONA TIGULLIO also recognized as a regional fair.GAL Genovese Development Agency is the organizer of this regional fair which takes place in Val Fontanabuona, a mountain area in eastern Liguria, and which attracts thousands of visitors every year. The fair receives each year a public funding by Liguria Region and Genoa Chamber of Commerce. Due to the pandemic the event seemed cancelled, but fortunately an innovative solution was found: a digital platform where users could found local products and services they need according to the e-commerce mode.

Bed & Sports Willisau

Bed & Sports in Willisau is a new accommodation offer (inaugurated in January 2018), which is embedded in the existing accommodation offers in the Willisau region. The offer supports and demonstrates the importance of sports tourism and its value for the city and the entire region. Willisau has always been a hot spot for athletes from all over Switzerland; since 1972, the city operates a sports center of national importance. Thus, in Willisau, there are an indoor swimming pool, a swinging cellar, a hall for strength, gymnastics and wrestling, various athletics facilities, a 400-meter circular track, three soccer fields, a 4-field beach facility, a cable car and several gyms at disposal. So far, however, Willisau has mostly been lacking overnight offers with 4- and multi-bed rooms, as well as theory rooms for sports camps. Adjacent to the sports facilities, the athletes accommodation “Bed & Sports” with 106 beds, theory rooms and a fitness center has now been realized together with the city of Willisau. This project allows the continuous tourist promotion of the region, since these beds are also available to sport tourists (biking, hiking, etc.). With the expansion of overnight accommodation in the affordable price segment, the sports facilities can be used even better, which has a positive effect on operating costs.Every year, over 20,000 athletes benefit of these accommodation options at the Willisau sports center. This offer is also used for cantonal youth & sports camps.The shared booking platform for the offers of Bed & Sports via the city of Willisau is ideal for athletes, clubs and tourists.
