04 Feb 2017
PyeongChang, Korea, February 2, 2017: The Chef de Mission Seminar for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games is well underway at the Alpensia Convention Centre. The PyeongChang Organising Committee (POCOG) welcomed 132 National Olympic Committee delegates on Wednesday and is using the three-day session to present on Games-time operation and services.

The information shared will also be outlined in the Chef de Mission Dossier and there will be a number of side meetings as needed with their NOC relations representatives to ensure they return home equipped with all the necessary information to continue planning their trip to PyeongChang in just over a year’s time.

POCOG President Lee Hee-beom said: “I trust the Chef de Mission Seminar will be an opportunity for you to get all the important information and updates in your preparations for the PyeongChang 2018 Games. 

“As athletes are at the heart of the Games, it is also essential for us to listen and learn from your expertise and experiences to move forward in our final planning for operational readiness. We will do our best to deliver a most memorable and athlete-centered Games for all NOC delegations and the entire Olympic Family.”

Japanese Olympic Committee Executive Board member Toshimasa Furukawa said: “We were able to confirm the readiness of PyeongChang 2018 through the presentations by the Organising Committee and the venue tour. 

“As the host country for the Sapporo Asian Winter Games this month - and with PyeongChang 2018 and Beijing 2022 waiting in line - we would like to set the winter sports world alight, create excitement and spread and promote the Olympic movement together.” The PyeongChang Winter Olympics will run from February 9-25, 2018.
