CWT Meetings & Events awarded World Figure Skating Championships 2018

CWT Meetings and Events, Carlson Wagonlit Travel’s meetings and events division, has been selected by the International Skating Union (ISU) and the Italian Ice Sports Federation (FISG) to run the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2018, which takes place at Milan’s Mediolanum Forum di Assago on 21-25 March.

CWT’s M&E Sport, the events specialist dedicated to sporting events, will coordinate the complex logistics of the five-day event, including PR and marketing. M&E’s involvement extends to overseeing the construction of the skating rink at Piazza Gae Aulenti, and the presentation of a Gala Dinner at the breathtaking Palazzo del Ghiaccio.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity to combine sporting passion with the values of Made in Italy," said Stefano Abram, GM of the Organizing Committee, “I am pleased to work with an experienced, reliable partner like CWT M&E. Hosting a World Cup in Italy is a dream come true for those who live sport and its values.”

“Working to successfully deliver an International event at the heart of one of the most dedicated sporting communities is a once-in-a-life time opportunity,” said Raffaele Calia, head of Sales and Marketing at CWT Meetings & Events and M&E Sport.

The ISU World Figure Skating Championships is yet another addition to CWT M&E’s fast-growing roster of events in the world of sports. CWT M&E already partners with UEFA, Dorna, and the Italian National Olympic Committee, for whom it just organized ticketing, logistics, and hospitality at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea.
