Whenever the organizers of WM 2019 get together, you can feel their joyful anticipation and motivation. Even after a successful event back in 2013, our team led by Bernhard Fliß of ISB e.V. as the official host is very clear in its vision and its responsible use of a comprehensive „check list“ from a few years ago to create an even better event this time where participants and guests from near and far shall feel right at home.
Their optimism behind ordering the identical size of stands as in the summer of 2013 for a capacity of more than 14,000 spectators is based on very good numbers at this stage already. Project manager Carsten Eckert at the team meeting in Berlin this past week expressed his joy and gratitude for the trust of the international Icelandic-horse community: „It’s really amazing how many fans are looking forward to coming back to the World Championships in Berlin-Karlshorst. We are still more than one-and-a-half years away from the event and we’re already closing in on the mark of 2,000 pre-sold tickets. That means tremendous motivation to offer all early birds and all further WM guests a first-class program when they get here. And we will fulfill that promise!"
