Lausanne, Switzerland, April 7, 2016 – FIVB World Congress hosts Argentina Volleyball Federation president Juan Antonio Gutierrez and Turicentro President Carlos Gianni emphasized how successful the FIVB World Congress 2016 will be when it takes place at the Hilton Hotel in Buenos Aires from October 4 to 6 later this year.

Mr Gutierrez, presenting to the FIVB Board of Administration, emphasized Argentina’s pedigree in hosting key FIVB events including the FIVB World Congress in 2002 and the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship in the same year.

“This is a great opportunity for us and thank you for the trust you have shown in us,” Mr Gutierrez told the Board of Administration. “This is very important for our country and we look forward to welcoming the world of volleyball. I would like to pass on my sincere gratitude to the FIVB President, the Board and the FIVB team for their support.”

Mr Gianni, who was also joined by Turicentro Director Martina Gianni, referred to Turicentro’s history of organizing key events such as the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2002 and the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires in 2013, where it has become the leading company in Argentina for business trips, inbound tourism, incentive groups, conventions and sport tourism. Since its creation in 1978, Turicentro specializes in offering the most complete range of tourism and event organization services.

The FIVB World Congress 2016 will be an elective Congress, marking four years since Dr. Ary S. Graça F° was elected in Anaheim, USA.
