Behind the Scenes of a Major Event
World Masters Games 2017 Observer Programme
Auckland will host the 2017 World Masters Games. It is the world’s largest multi-sport event by participation numbers. While an edition of the Olympic Games brings together approximately 11,000 athletes, 25,000 are expected in Auckland next year.
The Local Organising Committee will share their experiences in hosting the WMG2017 through an Observer Programme designed to give participants a complete overview of the Games including:
- Bidding process
- Sales and marketing
- Commercial partnerships
- Operational management of venues and ceremonies
This is a valuable learning opportunity for event managers and host city representatives, offering them space to interact with each other and expand their networks. Participants will meet and hear from key members of the WMG2017 team including Chief Executive Jennah Wooten, management and operational staff, and a selection of WMG 2017 Games Ambassadors.
The registration for participating closes on 3rd March 2017.
