About us

We are the lvh.apa trade association for crafts and service providers. For more than 75 years we have been accompanying companies in their daily business and offering services to strengthen entrepreneurs in their activities. In total there are about 8,000 member companies whose interests we also represent to the political arena.

We are present throughout South Tyrol with 9 district offices. The lvh.apa has a very good network and is organized in different groups:

  • 115 local groups in the municipalities of South Tyrol
  • 12 district organisations
  • 60 professional associations
For more than 10 years lvh.apa has had a department for innovation & new markets.
The department provides consultation, support and information to craftsmen and craftswomen on the topics of innovation, internationalization and digitalization. Since October 2017 this department is located in the NOI Techpark, South Tyrol's innovation district. Here we network member companies with local research facilities, institutions and start-ups.

In addition, we have been a Digital Innovation Hub of Confartigianato Imprese since 2017 and are thus well networked on a national level. Thanks to the close cooperation with our partners, we are able to constantly create new offerings, promote the spirit of innovation in companies and advance the marketing of new products and services.
