World Congress to be streamed live

The 34th FIVB World Congress will begin in Cagliari, Italy on Friday
Cagliari, Italy, October 29, 2014 – The FIVB is pleased to announce that live streaming of the 34th World Congress  will be available on the FIVB website from Thursday with a one-day workshop for national federations opening proceedings in Cagliari, Italy.

The biennial meeting will welcome 200 national federations to the Sardinian city and the live stream means that members of the volleyball family from around the world will have the opportunity to learn about the organisation’s activities over the last two years.

This year’s Congress is expected to focus on the dynamic modernisation of global volleyball over the past two years and how that success can be built upon for the continued betterment of the sport. 

Whilst the last two years have set the pace for technological evolution, the FIVB is continuing to make strides into new areas to constantly improve the sport.

The 2014 edition will not be an electoral one, with attention also focused on reports from all of the FIVB’s properties as well as ratifying decisions made by the Board of Administration and Executive Committee.

The Congress will be preceded by a one-day workshop for national federations in categories 1 and 2 with the theme “From vision to action”. The aim is to create an open dialogue between all member federations through collaboration. 

The previous workshop at the 2012 Congress included 159 participants from 146 countries and the goal for the 2014 edition is to better that number.

Key items on the proposed agenda include:
• Global development report overview from last two years.
• National Federation Strategic Report – opportunities and challenges.
• Development of competitions.
• Digital and social media 
• Managing innovation and change
• Working with government in schools
• Commercial aspirations and investment for the future
