During a fair in Moscow, SACR also organised a press conference for organisers in which Russian media were interested, she continued.

“The European championships is considered an important event with big potential to draw visitors from whole Europe and also overseas,” Kučerová said.

It is expected that 166 competitors from 33 countries will attend the figure skating championships and the organisers expect exceptional interest of visitors and media from the whole world. SACR wants to use the event to promote Slovakia and inspire visitors to return. It plans to broadcast the video with the invitation to spend a holiday in Slovakia also during the championship, on the big screen located above the ice rink of the Winter Stadium of Ondrej Nepela. It will also raise an information tent and will distribute a promotional flyer.

In addition to this, Eurosport started broadcasting the ad on January 11.
