SOLID was allowed to conduct an in-depth Feasibility Study for the Internationale Bodenseekonferenz (D/A/CH/FL) on the topic of the Summer EYOF Bodenseeregion, building on the previouse basic analysis. The result of the study was presented at the 41st Conference of IBK-Heads of Government.
Not many events could take place in 2020. There were exceptions. The E-BIKE FEST Wexl Trails 2020 could take place despite restrictions in a “small-version” at the legendary Wexl Trails. The latest models from renowned manufacturers (NOX, Greyp, Woom) were tested and EvilEye provided the right view. We are already looking forward to next year!
SOLID supported Stockholm Åre in their bid for the Olympic
and Paralympic Winter Games 2026. Being the world leader in sustainability and the
number three of the global democracy index, it appeared that Sweden might be a
great fit to partner with the recently reform driven IOC to innovate around the
SOLID was tasked to support the development and presentation of the mobility concept for the bid. A dream job considering the existing infrastructure and sustainable policies in place in Stockholm (global #2 in Arthur D. Little Urban Mobility Index 2018) and across the whole country.
Unfortunately there wasn’t a supporting majority within the IOC membership for the proposed bid. Despite all stated IOC reforms, there was rather interest in evolution than in revolution. With the vote from June 2019, the opportunity to stage the first truly sustainable Winter Games and benefit from an innovation power house like Sweden has been missed.
Congratulations to our competitors from Milan Cortina 2026!

The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Åre 2019 are successfully concluded. Despite challenging weather conditions the whole team and especially the volunteers did an amazing job in pulling off a great event in Swedens Jämtland region. SOLID supported the volunteer programme with IT and strategic advice. With impressive ski racing performances amongst women and men plus legends Lindsey Vonn and Aksel Lund Svindal retiring at the event, there was plenty of emotional moments for everyone. The Stockholm city FIS World Cup at Hammarbybacken right after Åre 2019 gave a great finish to an amazing two weeks of winter wonderland times in Sweden!
The Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships finished and have been the “best ever,” according to European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen. As part of the inaugural multi-sport European Championships viewership numbers were hugely successful for both broadcast and on-site in the Olympic stadium in Berlin. The incredible live atmosphere pushed the athletes to many personal bests and shiny medals which were awarded at the Berlin city center “European Mile” at Breitscheidplatz. SOLID provided a turnkey solution for the volunteer programme including a five person strong management team in the Olympic Park, the volunteer management tool and all the know-how behind it to recruit, train and manage 2500 volunteers who made this event possible and gave it their friendly faces. A big thank you to all volunteers who were part of this, especially our unique group of long-term volunteers – you are amazing!

How important the volunteers are, not only for the event but also for the around 1600 athletes, was reported by former top athletes.
Furthermore a varied program icluding musical entertainment and shows was presented. Of course the volunteer kick-off event could not end without the introduction of all heads of department and the presentation of the volunteer clothing that was shown for the first time.
Åre in beautiful central Sweden was host to the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals 2018 from March 14-18. A great test for the World Championships which will take place in Åre from 4-17 February 2019.
