Live from Ostrava, CZE 21/09/2011

Live from Ostrava, CZE

On 1 and 2 October 2011, WDSF Communications reports, respectively, on the World Youth Latin and the Grand Slam Latin staged in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Some may think that producing "Live from ..." coverage on a championship is as easy as being on location, writing a few news stories, pointing a camera at the action, getting videos and results online, and generating heavy traffic to website or YouTube channel.

It is somewhat more involved ... and it is actually quite expensive for WDSF to produce such coverage. But it is also the best way to give these events the prominence they deserve.

WDSF takes particular pride in the fact that it covers its Youth World Championships to exactly the same standards as those in Adult. In ten days from today, on 1 October, WDSF Communications will take its next blog on the 2011 World Youth Latin live from Ostrava CZE. Mark the dates! And reserve Sunday 2 October as well: another blog will cover the Grand Slam Latin held at the same venue.
