On this occasion, the Media Operations and the EBU, guest broadcaster of the WEG 2014, presented the work done by the broadcasters who will cover this global event.
In addition to presenting the sporting aspect of the event and its Logistics (Accommodation, Catering and Transport) and Services, a production plan of each site was distributed to attendees and discussed. Thomas Strobl and Gilles Cousin, both having cut their teeth at major international equestrian events, will hold the reins of this substantial project as producers.

Unilateral meetings enabled them to take into consideration any requests made by the main Television channels. France Télévisions and Equidia for France, ARD and ZDF for Germany, the BBC for Great Britain and SVT for Sweden all submitted their specific requirements. A questionnaire will be sent out in the coming weeks in order to refine the details of their requests. Then, on 1 February, the accreditation procedure for all Media will begin.
