Major interest for Croatian World Games
Media news conference July 13th, 2005 / Zaton Holiday Village
As our first application deadline has expired, one thing has become evident - the Croatian World Games have drawn enormous interest and attention in Croatian communities worldwide. A couple hundred applications from over twenty countries are an excellent introduction to what has to become the first "Croatian Olympics" in history.
But this is only the beginning of the story! The real promotion has to start yet. We believe there are many individuals around that have heard about the Games but didn't quite understand that they're invited themselves. In addition, there are many of those that already have the wish to participate but don't know how to enroll.
Because of these and other reasons, the organizing committee has set July 13th, 2005 as the date for the the first media conference which will take place at the Zaton Holiday Village, the same place which will act as "Olympic village" during the Games. The conference will cover the first application period and its results, the new application deadline, application possibilities apart from the internet and other issues of importance connected with the Games. At the same time the news conference will serve as project presentation for the domestic public.
Apart from our hosts, invitations for the news conference have gone out to all Games patrons and co-patrons (Government of Rep. Croatia, City of Zadar, Zadar County, the Archbishopric of Zadar, the Croatian Heritage Foundation, Croatian Olympic Committee). A number of sport celebrities are also expected to make a presence at the conference.
Detailed information about the news conference you will find soon on our official website www.zadar2006.com .
