The bidding committee presented their slogan: ‘Welcome home!’ It refers to the hospitality that has made Central Switzerland internationally famous and to the fact that winter sports have a long tradition in the region.

With a budget of 33.5 million and an expected added value of approximately 70 million, the bid is an investment in the national promotion of sport, the local trade as well as in the tourism of the region Central Switzerland.
