on April 25, 2003
The Canadian Chinese Table Tennis federation conducted its 2nd in a series of press conferences to announce the co-hosting with the Canadian Table Tennis Association of the 2002-2003 STIGA Canada Cup Finals to be held in North Vancouver on June 14-15, 2003 at Capilano College. The chosen venue location for the conference was Kwan Len University College Richmond Campus.
Attendees included representatives from all level of Governments, the President of the Canadian Table Tennis Association, major sponsors, well-known table tennis players, coaches and community leaders.
After the first announcement by the C.C.T.T.F. on its title sponsorship for the Canada Cup last fall, this press conference focus was primarily on the logistics of the tournament. The announcement of the venue (Capilano College in North Vancouver), ticket prices ($7 for one day pass and $10 for two days pass), and date of ticket sales (starting from May 19, ticket sale hotline: 604-279-9696 or purchasing on site on tournament day), was given in addition to transportation information as well as a series of events that will lead to the final two days of Competition.
One of the main highlights prior to the event will be the Official Launching celebration of the Canada Cup Finals event hosted by the C.C.T.T.F. themed around “Sports & Friendship”. The Vice President of Marketing announced that the C.C.T.T.F. expects to have several hundred guests from across Canada to attend this grand event which will be held on June 8, 2003; one week before the actual competition.
During the press conference, the Vice President of Marketing for C.C.T.T.F., Mr. Alexander Kostjuk, also introduced to the media some of the major partners and sponsors.
