Glasgow has a well-deserved top class reputation as a host city for sporting events and we were keen to play our part in enhancing this. To this end we brought together over 60 sporting specialists, ranging from Venue Media Managers and Venue Photo Supervisors to News Editors and sports reporters. As ever, we sought to focus on local people first, then people from the UK, with a few coming from the European Union and one from North America.
We were also pleased to be able to have the Head of Media Operations of the Pan American Games Lima 2019 seconded to the team. She contributed hugely and gained hugely, and the two from the Americas will be reunited again in Lima. Another innovation was to create co-ordinators, mostly local recent graduates, to give them their first paid experience in a sporting event. This was another great success.
