The days of the ski bum are on the wane. This season you’re more likely to find your chalet host, transfer driver or chef huddled in the corner of a coffee shop, furiously tapping on their MacBook than hitting up the park or chugging pints at apres. Modern day Morzine is a hub for creative industries and adventure entrepreneurs because, in a nutshell, we all love the mountains and this is where we want to stay.
Adventure Academy is a new London based event, scheduled to take place 1 week before the London Ski Show on Saturday 22nd October 2016. It’s aimed at entrepreneurs looking to create their own action or lifestyle sports business but don’t know how to get started. Key industry speakers will inspire, inform and encourage entrepreneurs, offering practical advice on how to get started.
Founders Doug and Mikey told us
“Action Academy is open to people from all walks of life; whether you’re on your 12th season and grew up skiing from 2 years old – or you’ve had a successful career in the city and only just started to discover the world of adventure sports – it’s a shared desire to create a great brand, product or service in our industry that binds us together; and we have companies featuring on the day who herald from both directions – so there is something to help fuel everyone!”
