The new winter campaign “Upgrade Your Winter” was presented, along with the diverse range of train travel offers in Switzerland. Winter sports are becoming increasingly popular among Brazilians, as the statistics show: in the winter season 2016/2017, the Federal Statistical Office counted 109,589 overnight hotel stays by Brazilians. In 2017/2018, this figure rose by 11.6% (to 122,296 ON).

The success of the event was due in particular to the effective cooperation among ST, STS, Rail Europe, SWISS/Edelweiss, the Swiss running shoe brand “On” and the toothbrush manufacturer Curaprox. The feedback from participants was also positive: “The event in Rio de Janeiro was great and one of the best-organised I’ve attended in the past 15 years. We’re now even more #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND,” said Ana Cucci, Manager of the Virtuoso network, expressing her thanks.
