Live from Sarajevo Venue, accommodation, program and media coverage

The venue

V13

Hotel Holiday Sarajevo - The Olympic Hotel, is the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics Rush - RE-WINDED live from Sarajevo official venue partner and will host the venue in it's Neretva saloon, located at the ground floor, left of the main lobby and bar.

The colorful post modernistic hotel, originally opened as Holiday Inn Sarajevo, is built for the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics, and still has the Olympic logo engraved in the concrete pillars at the entrance. It is designed by the celebrated Bosnian architect Ivan Straus, who also designed the new terminal at Sarajevo International Airport for the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics.

V1

vACCBiH has on purpose chosen Hotel Holiday Sarajevo for the venue, as it has it all: The spirit of the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics, reference to the Sarajevo International Airport, the necessary infrastructure, great restaurant and cozy atmosphere, and a 30 years experienced staff, who have been a great support for the event.

Control center

The events control center is located in the 100 sq meters quadratic Neretva saloon, at the ground floor, left of the main lobby and bar, windows facing out to the Hotel Holiday Sarajevo entrance and parking and a bathroom just across the entrance in the pillar.

Vtables

It is a excellent choice, as it is for visitors easy to reach, it can fit up to 50 guests at once, still having comfort, and the quadratic form fits excellent the requested table layout.

Table layout

The table layout is having roots in the Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics as well, as it is illustrating the official Sarajevo '84 Winter Olympics logo.

It is very functional, as each of the 4 u-forms are if needed creating individual control centers for a airport and making direct handoffs easier, using printed flight strips

But if necessary, at each table, there can sit even up to 3 ATCos next to each other and one ATCo across, most relevant the CTR ATCo, so all CTR ATCos can handoff both to the airports and to each other directly.

Pilots positions

Beside it, we will have a pilots positions row, and a practical row with minibar, wardrobe and TV-screens showing live broadcast from Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, event arrivals and departures list, radar image and 3D image from the virtual Sarajevo Airport.

Chat corners

And in two of the corners, we will have chat corners, with a little round table and Aerosvijet aviation magazines to read.

The hostel is located in the very city center of Sarajevo, in a charming building, built in the Austro-Hungarian period, where young architects and designers refurbished the space and shaped a hostel that tells you a story of the event that initiated the First World War and forever marked Sarajevo on the map of the world – the assassination of the Austro-Hungarian archduke and Royal Prince Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie. It has cheap prices including breakfast, bedsheets and WIFI, so is really worth visiting and the staff is amazing.
