FoG 2016 - Rio



Ideally located at Arpoador Rock, at the corner of Rio’s iconic Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, the Friends of the Games Lounge was designed to support solution providers, broadcasters, OB companies, decision-makers, media and other professionals involved in the first Games ever held in South America. Here, they were able to share knowledge, discuss best practices, and have a stimulating dialogue on how the technology for sports events has changed and what can be expected in future.
