Guest Services

During the EYOF week we serve many different groups of people. EOC office, VIPs, tourists, media and event volunteers need to be served. There will be various tasks in this field including work in different offices (transport, EOC office, volunteer office, accommodation) and meetings as well as welcoming people at the airport.


NOC services

NOC services office is the place where the teams will get all the information, they need related to their competitions and program. Working in this office, you need to have good knowledge about everything what is going on in this festival.


Media & Marketing
