Baltic Travel Group (BTG) delivers the complete destination management service for a world event at ‘short’ notice
When the 2021 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship had to be moved to Riga, Latvia, due to the complicated political situation at the time in the original host city, it left just 100 days before the start date to get every aspect of the tournament in place. Up stepped the euromic Baltic States, BTG team, to take on the challenge of arranging all the teams’ accommodations and catering for the organisers, and for getting in place all needed for the officials, delegations, sponsors and more.
It was a challenge worth taking on and the results from BTG worthy of the very best DMCs. BTG helped the organisers deliver a fantastic event in very challenging circumstances and in a short time frame to over 1000 people at the tournament.
