You know your premium quality product has achieved international recognition, when you are part of an international delegation on presidential level. In 2016, Viktor Meier, Co-Founder of Glice® synthetic ice rinks, had been invited to the Sino-Swiss state visit in China to represent the young Swiss startup.
Viktor Meier had been asked to join the Swiss business delegation made up of leaders of major Swiss companies to represent the innovative synthetic ice rink product overseas.
Can you imagine an ice rink in the African desert, amid lush rainforest in the tropics or in an Indian metropolis like Kolkata? Admittedly, the idea challenges one’s imagination; after all, ice skating had been limited to the winter season and mostly the Northern hemisphere for the longest time. Until now. Within merely 5 years, Glice® synthetic ice rinks have become a total game changer that revolutionized the very idea of ice sports and redrew the boundaries of who can ice skate, when and where. The tremendous success of Glice® synthetic ice rinks has always been driven by a big vision: not only does ice skating become an Eco-friendly sport and pastime by taking water and energy out of the icy equation, but it also becomes accessible to people all around the world; people, who had never seen a pair of skates before. No matter the season, region or climate zone, Glice® synthetic ice makes skating dreams an ice-solid reality.
When Co-Founder and CEO Viktor Meier talks about Glice® synthetic ice, you see genuine joy radiating from his face. It is the contagious smile of a man who believes in his product and the positive impact it has on people’s lives. Even Google was persuaded by the charismatic down-to-earth Glice® vibe and the innovative technology, so that the internet giant chose to portray the quirky Swiss startup in a video.
