Lausanne, April 21, 2013: The London International Horse Show, Olympia (GBR) has been unveiled as the “Best Press Office” for the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Western European League 2014/2015, following voting by global media.
The Olympia press office, led by Jo Peck, who has worked in the equestrian events industry for 12 years and in the wider events industry for 20 years, first represented her team when they won this coveted award in 2013. This same team was celebrated by media at the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final in Las Vegas (USA) last weekend.
“In 2014 we invested in a better working environment for the media at Olympia and our team was very focused on making the media experience as easy and user-friendly as possible”, said Jo Peck.
“This work has paid great dividends and this award is testament to all our efforts. Olympia is the Christmas highlight of the prestigious Longines series, attracting large numbers of visitors and the media centre is always a hive of industry, generating significant international coverage for the event.”
“The media teams working to raise awareness of our sport and the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping do a tremendous job, making sure that media have all the latest information and tools necessary to put our athletes and sponsors into the limelight,” said FEI Director of Press Relations, Grania Willis.
“The Best Press Office award is hard-fought, and the media who voted for Olympia were really enthusiastic, highlighting their positive experiences of working at the event. To win this award once is fantastic, but to win it twice is seriously impressive and very well deserved.”
The Stuttgart Masters was the first to win the Best Press Office Award when it was introduced in 2011. Jumping Verona then took the award in 2012, with London Olympia winning the media accolade in 2013 and Gothenburg talking the honours in 2014. —- Photo: Dirk Caremans/FEI
