Prior to the local tournaments, we met with the management, marketeers, local store managers and our team at the head office of MediaMarkt Belgium. We discussed the schedule and ran through the event. The communication lines were clear. We demonstrated the tournament on the spot by organizing a FIFA tournament for MediaMarkt.
We chose to have the events be supervised by the same event managers at all times. Luckily, a number of our event managers have French roots. This way, we could serve both the Flemish and the Walloon part in their native language. Coming from their hotel rooms, our event mangers were always present well in time for each of the qualifying rounds. We took our time for the build-up and awarded gift vouchers and prizes to the winners of the local qualifying rounds.
