FINA Communications Department

With just four months to go before the 18th FINA World Championships [1] from July 12-28, the Gwangju 2019 Organising Committee, together with FINA held a workshop last week for all the partners and official sponsors.

This workshop was key for all the stakeholders involved as it provided a great opportunity to share the plans and the progress made with regards to the services that will be provided during the Championships. The main purpose of the workshop was to help ensure the successful delivery of the upcoming event.

Discussions focused on the equipment, accommodation, catering and communication services, among others. All the official sponsors were present, including Samsung, Nikon, Yakult, Arena, Myrtha Pools and Omega.

Dr. Cho Young-teck, Secretary General, said: “To create strong relationships with our partners not only provides us with a truly sustainable and efficient working model but gives us great confidence in continuing our work. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors as well as our long-term partner FINA for their great and invaluable support. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration and successful event!”

In addition, Gwangju 2019 has recently established concrete partnerships with national firms including KT Corp, one of the leading telecommunications companies in the world, and Gwangju Bank, the region’s leading bank which will manage operational funds and provide a variety of financial services at the athletes’ village and competition venues.
