Gauteng To launch international Media Centre

Shout-Africa News – Johannesburg- Gauteng is the heartbeat of the FIFA 2010 World Cup with three match stadium’s, the international broadcast centre and the home to FIFA family. Friday 11th June 2010 saw the start of the World biggest kick-off in our province followed by a number of high profiled matches and events to kick-start the festivities. To that effect the Gauteng Gateway 2010 project team, through the Provincial Executive Council, will hold a media briefing session to reflect on the province’s impressions at Gauteng 2010 Media Centre (Craft Design Centre) Nelson Mandela Square Sandton Central (opposite FIFA H/Q) on Thursday, 17th June, 2010.

Also at the briefing, the province will officially launch its 2010 international media centre which is to serve as the nerve centre and source of relevant information about Gauteng and the planned activities. This is to ensure all media (local and international) have a home, nerve centre and a space that has a finger on the pulse 24/7 to allow a free flow of information during the world cup.
