BELGRADE (SRB): AIPS informs that the European Indoors were success also from media working conditions point of view. "We have worked to accommodate the needs of 650 accredited media, 250 written press, over 100 photographers, which is a lot more than usual, and which brings with it a new level of organizational needs. Thanks to the size of the venue, we have had the space to block seats and create the necessary photo positions," said EA Media consultant Stefan Thies. Kronen Zeitung journalist Olaf Brockmann (his last event for the paper but will continue as consultant for the IAAF) who has covered 22 European Athletics Indoor Championships, with reporting spanning over thirty years judged the media conditions in Belgrade as "very good."
RunBlogRun opines: With unobstructed views at seating, consistent wifi, reasonable charges for snacks, and an excellent official website, Media had great support. The European Indoor Championships were much better than some global venues that we have worked, and I have worked at nine Olympics, 20 World and 7 European champs, and Belgrade was one of the best. The reasonable hotel costs, meal costs and airfare also play into a strong venue.
