The National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of Oceania are planning an Oceania Village as a part of the Olympic celebrations in Tokyo.
The purpose of the Village is to educate local and international visitors to the Games about Oceania, as well as promote sustainable sport tourism and focus on environmental issues facing the region, using sport as a case study to focus discussion.
The project has the endorsement of ONOC and includes the national tourism and business development entities in the region, along with other major sponsors.
The harbour-side site at Takeshiba Ferry Terminal is being supplied, in large part, by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Part of the activation will include showcasing sports in four waves – either three to four days for each sport, or a combination, as to be determined by the participants. Ideally four sports could promote themselves through demonstrations and interactive participation by visitors to the Oceania Village.
Footfall for the site is estimated to range from 10,000 to 50,000 people per day. Social media is expected to be a key component of the project to expand the reach.
There will be a small cost to cover the infrastructure support, which can raised through the federations or sponsorship.
If you are interested in showcasing your sport at this unique venue in Tokyo during the Olympic Games, please get in touch with our committee.
