Excitement for Deutsches Haus at Museum of London Docklands as Games approachJune 26, 2012 Blogs, Special events
Museum of London Docklands will be closed between 9 July and 16 September to host Deutsches Haus, the official base for the German National Olympic Committee. Activity will include Deutsches Haus, a private hospitality base, and Fanfest, a public celebration of German sport and culture. German-Sport Marketing tell us about the final preparations. “With the Olympic Games being less than five weeks away, preparations for the transformation of the Museum of London Docklands into Deutsche Haus, and the associated Fan Fest, are entering the final stage.
German Sport-Marketing, who is organising the house for the German Olympic Sports Confederation, together with Messe Düsseldorf, kicked-off the final weeks with the last meeting of the steering committee, before everyone will meet in London.
The redecoration of the Museum is already underway, as lavatories are rebuilt, internal partitions are built in and the technical infrastructure is updated. The larger part of this temporary modification will be done after the Museum closes to the public on 9 July.
When the Deutsches Haus opens on 26 July, 220 people will be working in and around it to make sure that the expected 1000 guest per day enjoy a truly Olympic atmosphere.
The Deutsches Haus will provide guests with its own TV programme and a daily newsletter, which is written by five contributors on-site and quests have already started to register for accreditation.
Fourteen partners from German economy exclusively support Deutsches Haus and Deutsches Haus Paralympics. The fourteen convened with German Sports-Marketing just last week to discuss their activities on site and their status of preparations.”
