Following on from our successful delivery of the press operations for the European Hockey Championships in 2015 Pearce International was proud to continue its relationship with Great Britain Hockey and England Hockey and delivered the press operations at the Hockey Champions Trophy in London in June.
The HCT featured the six best teams in the world, both men’s (from Australia, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, India and Korea) and women’s (from Argentina, Australia, Great Britain, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the USA) at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre for two and half weeks of world class competition.
A full range of media facilities was provided for over 120 accredited media, including media tribune, media centre and I-Zone.
England Hockey contracted Jayne and Pearce International colleagues to plan and manage our Media Services operation at the Unibet EuroHockey Championships in 2015.
The professional service, expertise and added value to our event in this key area resulted in high levels of satisfaction ratings from members of the media. Additionally, we benefited from a real step change in the engagement of athletes with members of the media through the I-Zone concept which was also really well received by our National Associations and Federations. Jayne provided a great proactive service throughout and was a pleasure to work with.
My colleagues and I were very impressed with Jayne and Pearce International who were responsible for the press media centre at the women’s European Championship staged at the Lee Valley Stadium in the Olympic Park in August 2015.
Jayne was charged with making sure the British and European press received top class service and updates in regards to this prestigious event in the sporting calendar, all the more important as it was the first major tournament to be held at the Olympic Park legacy home of England Hockey.
The media centre was run immaculately, early teething problems overcome with the minimum of fuss and problems. Jayne particularly dealt with the needs of individuals from all the various organisations involved in covering such an event and went about her business in discreet and diplomatic fashion. She also brought together a team that responded to her completely. These are absolutely essential assets when dealing with all that a press corps demands. We were very grateful indeed to have received such service.
