The city of Tarragona hosts two important events this week, within the framework of the celebration of the XVIII Mediterranean Games that will take place from 22 June to 1 July  2018.

The President of the International Committee of the Mediterranean Games (ICMG) Amar Addadi, together with the President of the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE), Alejandro Blanco, yesterday inaugurated the two-day Chefs de Mission Seminar for Tarragona 2018 at the Palacio de Congresos, seminar at which the team leaders will be briefed on all aspects of the operation and organization of the Games so as to best prepare the participation of their delegations in 2018. The agenda for the seminar includes security, accommodation, sports competitions, protocol, transport, and volunteers, as well as a venue tour.

During his speech President Blanco reaffirmed “the hundred per cent support of the Spanish NOC for Tarragona 2018,” by recalling that everything will be done so that “the Tarragona Games prove to be the best ever”.

The second event will be the ICMG General Assembly at the Exhibition Centre on Friday 13 October, which will elect a new Executive Committee and designate the venue for the 2019 Mediterranean Beach Games.

The two events bring together more than a hundred international representatives from the 25 National Olympic Committees from the 3 continents that border the Mediterranean Sea.

Alongside the Seminar and General Assembly, various ICMG commissions and committees, including the Technical Coordination and Medical and Anti-Doping Commissions, the Cooperation and Development and the Statutes and Regulations Committees, will meet in connection with the Tarragona 2018 Mediterranean Games.
