A New IT Company Launches Into the World of International Sport
Meteksan Events is a subsidiary of the huge Meteksan Group, a leading international IT company whose business spans Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Following the company’s huge success in managing the IT solutions for the 2005 Summer Universiade held in Izmir in Turkey and seeing the potential for improvement to the IT services currently provided within the world of international sport, Meteksan Events was created.
Meteksan Events’ new headquarters are in the International House of Sport in Lausanne where they already work for the International Archery Federation (FITA). Their work for FITA provides a good example of how Meteksan Events' innovative solutions can greatly benefit sports organisations and event organisers, managing, as they do, FITA’s web portal and the IT infrastructure and management of IT services for all the federation’s world class events. Meteksan Events have this week been providing all the IT solutions for the Archery World Cup Final held in a stunning setting in Dubai where the archery targets were placed on a floating platform over a lake surrounding Fort Island, Dubai.
Meteksan Events have also built a key strategic partnership with MSL, the world’s leading Games Results Systems company. The Madrid based MSL, has over 20 years experience in the international sports world, including the provision of results systems to every summer Olympic Games since 1992.
Meteksan Events is also an official partner of the IF Forum being held this week in Lausanne. Koray Eti, Director of Meteksan Events, Lausanne said “It was undoubtedly the right decision for us to open Meteksan Events’ headquarters in the Olympic capital, the home of the IOC and of so many International Federations”.
“We believe that technology in this world has not yet been exploited to its full potential and we are convinced that, together with MSL, we can bring a new, creative and fresh approach which will enable us to provide the IFs and all major event owners with better technology and fully integrated solutions for their events”.
