logo_Everest

EVEREST CLIMBING Sp. z o.o. is a producer of specialised sport equipment.

We are a young and cosmopolitan team operating since 2001. We develop and produce innovative equipment, which sets new trends in the field of sport, recreation and rehabilitation.

The EVEREST climbing wall is currently our flagship product. The second generation of this climbing wall was presented at FIBO Sporting Trade Fairs in Cologne in April 2016.

The innovativeness of the mobile climbing wall “EVEREST” is that it allows moving the climbing sport from high climbing halls to relatively small rooms. The compact device works like a vertical treadmill producing the effect of a never-ending climbing route.

EVEREST CLIMBING was the first producer worldwide to equipped a mobile climbing wall with an intelligent climbing holds location system. It makes the climbing holds constantly change their location in respect of each other. This leads to the ongoing formation of a new climbing route so that the climber constantly faces new challenges. This patented system is used exclusively by us and is the key feature distinguishing our product from all other devices of this type.

The climbing pace gets adjusted to the climber’s abilities and the climber is at all times close to the soft mattress the device is equipped with. There is no need to use any additional safety equipment.

The difficulty level can be adjusted, as the wall can change the inclination angle. The climbing wall is therefore appealing for kids and adults, for amateurs and climbing professionals, but can also be used in rehabilitation and sports rehabilitation.

Banks and taxes in the context of political changes (Discussion)

The new banking tax has been introduced on February 1st, 2016. As financial institutions now need to pay an annual duty of 0.44 pct from their assets, if their value exceeds PLN 4 bln. The act on the help for the people who repay mortgages denominated in foreign currencies is still a big question mark. It will also involve higher costs for financial institutions. How will these burdens influence the hotel sector?

Regional development (Discussion)

Cooperation

When you say TriCity you think the Neptune statue, the old town and the pier in Sopot. In Kraków it is Wawel, Kazimierz and perhaps growing demand from IT companies. In Warsaw – the Royal Castle, the Łazienki Park and the CBD. Therefore we will invite mayors, representatives of promotion bureaus and hotel owners from selected Polish cities to discuss how and where to best promote Polish cities amongst tourists and business people.

Hotel services automation (Presentation)

Personalization first

Will the shift towards automation in hotel services actually improve or lower the quality of hotel services? Will giving up on for example the reception service (and human services in general) thanks to individual check-in and check-out by the guests help to reduce costs in a long run? Will human-served facilities will only be profitable for high-end chains, while the budget hotels will only relay on self-service?

Senior and student housing. Is Poland ready for the new investment trends? (Discussion)

Making money on the youth and elderly

Today there are 7 mln pensioners and in 2050 the number will reach 10 mln. While the data encourages new sort of property investment, the Polish law is currently an efficient deterrent in doing so. The first few new projects for seniors are already in operation, how many more are there to be built? On the other side of the coin, a growing number of students seeks for high-quality accommodation. Will development companies be willing to satisfy their needs?

Beautiful and useful (Discussion)

The design-and-build approach in the planning and design of hotel developments

Hotel interiors have to be functional and well thought out, but also need to fit in with the latest trends in design. Experience shows, however, that just having a good idea is not enough. Many great visions have failed to see the light of day, as the difficulty of combining the original design, the capabilities of the contractor, the time and the costs have conspired against such projects. Which strategy do you need to follow to ensure the right quality and the completion of the project on time? What is the design-and-build approach and what advantages does it give to individual partners? How to monitor and supervise an entire new project to ensure that it is successful? Find out all the answers from global practitioners and experts in the management of hotel projects.
