The Executive Committee held its autumn meeting during the annual Forum Nordicum, the meeting of all Nordic ski journalists and the International Ski Federation (FIS) as well as the International Biathlon Union (IBU). This year's meeting takes place is hosted by the Slovenian Ski Federation and takes place in Ankaran, a little village on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia.
The Executive Committee could not only hold its autumn meeting but also used the opportunity to speak with the assembled journalists and to discuss the future of long distance skiing with them, partners from the ski industry as well as with event organisers and members of the different international federations.
During the meeting, the coming season was discussed as well topics for the the next AGM (Annual General Meeting, in June next year, hosted by Marcialonga and taking place in Riva del Garda). The most important subject however was the 26min TV production which will be done by each FIS Marathon Cup this season and which will be diffused by EBU/ Eurovision to all its member stations as well as to many hundreds more. Another big step forward in terms of publicity and promotion for long distance skiing and Worldloppet!!!
More information on how these 26min films will be available for all fans and interested winter sport enthusiasts will be giving later this autumn, just before the season!!!
Worldloppet's Secretary General Angelo Corradini also gave a presentation with the most important facts and news about Worldloppet to the around 100 journalists gathered together to get all news about Nordic winter sports.
