VIP Sportstravel: Exclusive travel partner for TWG 2017
After fruitful cooperation at Cali in 2013, the International World Games Association (IWGA) has again chosen VIP Sportstravel as its exclusive travel partner for The World Games 2017. This multi-sport event will take place from 20 to 30 July next year in Wroclaw, Poland. Through this agreement, VIP Sportstravel will provide its expertise in travel and hospitality services for the benefit of federations, sponsors, media, athletes and individuals.
In 2017, The World Games celebrate an anniversary in Wroclaw/Poland: it will be the 10th edition of this fascinating multi-sport event. We expect more than 4,500 participants from over 100 nations, fighting for World Games gold in 27 sports and disciplines on the official programme.
Commenting on the agreement with VIP Sportstravel, IWGA President José Perurena stated: “We aim for nothing less than the best World Games ever. One of the stepping stones to help us reach this goal is close cooperation with experienced partners in each field.. We are convinced that VIP Sportstravel will continue the good work and collaboration with our participating IFs and other IWGA partners that we experienced at The World Games in Cali.”
As Rainer Wenning, Managing Director, explained: “VIP Sportstravel is very experienced in travel management, hospitality, and brand activation in sports marketing. We want to continue building on this expertise. Therefore, we are proud to be part of this project and to be chosen once again as the Exclusive Travel Agent for The World Games.”
VIP Sportstravel’s goal is to enable easier access to the event by offering tailor-made packages including international & national flights to Wroclaw, accommodation, local transportation, activities and catering. Any IF that wants to organize stays outside the official participation period, and any NOC and individual person (family, friend, fan…etc.) or group (companies, media, clubs, federations…etc.) can count on VIP Sportstravel’s expertise to provide them with the best solution and make their journey to Wroclaw an unforgettable experience.
