The IMGA visited Jeonbuk, Korea from June 27th to July 1st to inspect the preparation progress for the APMG 2023 by scheduling the meetings with the APMG 2023 Organizing Committee, greeting Kim Kwan-young, the new governor-elect of Jeonbuk (who is also the new Chairman of the Organizing Committee for APMG 2023), and by visiting the sports venues and exploring tourist destinations in the region.

During the visit, Jens shared: “In relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), it is great to see that the Asia Pacific Masters Games Organising Committee is striving to reach more SDG’s such as eco-friendly transportation and recycled uniforms”. I am looking forward to see the integration of SDG’s into all of IMGA’s Masters Games in the future.” With this in mind, the Organising Committee for APMG 2023 Jeonbuk is in full preparation to successfully host the Masters Games and will integrate SDGs from the Event Host Evaluation Guidelines from the IMGA.

Ceo Jens Holm visited multiple venues together with IMGA’s Sports Director, Samantha Hayward. She commented: “The sports venues look well and I am confident that the APMG 2023 venues will be more than suitable for international sports competitions where athletes can enjoy their favourite sports.”

The Jeonbuk 2023 Organising Committee has the ambition to offer the best quality services for the sports competitions with exciting social events and tourism experiences where athletes and their companions will make lasting memories joining the Games.
