ROME, Italy (August 5th) – In continuation of United World Wrestling’s first Event Organization Workshop held in Panama City (21-24/01/2022) for the Americas, Italy hosted a similar workshop at the U17 Rome World Championships (22-25/07/2022). The workshop, which the UWW Sports Department conducted, was held to assist in educating the host cities for the upcoming World Championships, World Cups, and European and Asian Championships.
United World Wrestling’s objective is to acknowledge tools and get a deep comprehension of the UWW Event Organization. This objective will help increase the quality of our competition's delivery and continue to ensure wrestling’s growth.
During the workshop, discussion topics included: the benefits of organizing an event, planning, bidding process, and functional areas, among many others.
One differentiation from the workshop in Panama to the one held in Italy was the walk-through of the venue where the U17 World Championships were held.
Also, one of the objectives is to encourage discussion among host NFs and share their experiences, especially with those that will host future events.

In addition to the arena work through and workshop, the participants had the chance to speak with the different commissions that were working at the event. These activities helped make the workshop more useful for all participants.
Following the workshop's conclusion, participants completed a short survey, providing valuable feedback that’ll be utilized in the planning of UWW’s next Event Organization Workshop editions.
"I liked the positive energy of everyone who participated in the seminar. I also appreciated the group's interest and the instructor's willingness to help," one participant said.
Thanks to the participant's experience, the open dialogues generated during the sessions benefited everyone. They showed different points of view while opening diverse discussions that will help in the decision-making process and organization of upcoming events.
