The PyeongChang 2018 Organizing Committee hosted a workshop Thursday inviting participants of the Sochi 2014 Observer Program to discuss their experiences and share new knowledge.
More than 250 people attended the workshop, including employees of POCOG, officials of the Ministry and host/venue city governments, along with industry experts.
One of the key issues at the seven hour meeting was the topic of Engagement and Sustainability. Participants agreed that it is critical for all stakeholders to put forth an effort into developing strategic and cohesive plans to engage the public and to create lasting legacies that are uniquely about PyeongChang.
Other discussions were on venue management, Games operations, accommodation, transport, culture, marketing, technology and accessibility.
POCOG President Jin-sun Kim said on closing, “I hope that this workshop serves as an opportunity for everyone here to further advance communication and cooperation. We have one goal, and that is to deliver a successful Olympic and Paralympic Games in PyeongChang”.
