CWT Meeting & Events has been selected as the partner for the Alpine World Ski Championships 2021 in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, during which ski champions from 70 countries will be competing over 14 days.
The Cortina 2021 Foundation, run by CEO Valerio Giacobbi, picked CWT M&E for its proven expertise in the area, CWT says. The event agency already partners with Italian sports associations including the Italian Federation of Ice Sports, for whom it ran the 2018 World Figure Skating Championships in Milan, and the National Italian Olympic Committee, for whom it ran the 2018 Olympics Games in Pyeongchang. Internationally, CWT M&E has worked with CIO, UEFA and Dorna Sports.
Together with the Cortina Hotel Association, chaired by Roberta Alverà, the Cortina 2021 Foundation and CWT M&E have also signed an agreement covering the accommodation needs of participants. CWT M&E Sport, CWT’s specialist sports management outfit, will coordinate and manage the organizational aspects during the event.
