Ljubljana - Willingen, town in Germany in federal state Hessen, hosted Forum Nordicum, which celebrates its 30th anniversary. Journalists that cover nordic part of winter sports stayed in this little remote town from monday till today.
Presentation of Ski Flying World Championships, which is going to be held in Planica for the sixth time, took place yesterday. We introduced plans for the upcoming event, that is considered the largest in Slovenia and the largest FIS event in the world in 2010.
Also this year, 5000 children will have the opportunity to watch the competitors. Besides that, we expect a large number of TV viewers from all over the world - more than 150.000.000 - and broadcasts of 10 TV programs.
In Planica works are momentarily underway on the landing area, which will be widened and the new skilift will be built soon. We hope that more than 400 journalists from 17 countries will help to spread Planica's story and for that reason, we will once again offer excellent working conditions.
Journalists will have more than 300 working places in two press centres at their disposal and we will also offer special accreditations for "small media" representatives and special accomodation prices for accreditated media representatives.
