Chef de Missions from across the Pacific are in Samoa this week to meet with officials from the Games Organising Committee.
The three day summit begins on Wednesday and will include presentations from the Pacific Games Office on a range of topics, including the sports, medical and anti-doping programs, sponsorship and branding, accommodation and the athletes village, as well as services such as catering, transportation, security, freight, accreditation, ceremonies and visa requirements.
The Chairman of the Pacific Games Organising Committee, Loau Keneti Sio, hopes that the meeting will be a fruitful and successful one.
“Our Organising Committee is putting together a comprehensive program for the Chef de Missions gathering this week,” he said.
“With just 131 days to go, our hope is to inform and familiarize them with all the services that will be made available for them and their athletes at the games.
“The Chef de Mission seminar is one of the key events ahead of the main event in July and we are extremely excited to showcase Samoa’s progress thus far.”
Chef de Missions will also receive a full tour of the Games Village and the sports competition venues.
