City Delegation Visits International Press Center at Gwangju Universiade

On June 30, the members of Taipei’s delegation, led by Deputy Mayor Chou Li-fang, stopped by the Main Press Center (MPC) and the International Broadcast Center (IBC) during their visit to the Summer Universiade taking place at the city of Gwangju in Korea.
Chou noted that the visit to the two facilities offers delegation members an opportunity to learn more about how business is conducted for international sports events in the areas of media service and event broadcasting. It also helps the city government to understand more about space usage and how standard operation procedures are implemented.
The 2015 Summer Universiade will kick off in Gwangju on July 3.
The Main Media Center (MMC), comprising both the IBC and MPC, is the channel for bringing the games to a global audience. The center is roughly a 20-minute travel by car from the main venue at the World Cup Stadium, serving 1,500 media workers from South Korea and around the world.
The deputy mayor and Deputy Secretary-general Hsueh Chun-ming were also invited by the organization committee of the Gwangju Universiade to attend the opening event of the MMC, cutting the ribbons with FISU committee member Marc Vandenplas, Gwangju Universiade Organization Committee co-presidents Kim Hwang-sik and Yoon Jang-hyeon, and other dignitaries.
