Olympic press briefing closes in Beijing
font size    

The first world press briefing for the 2008 Olympic Games Thursday closed in Beijing.

The two-day briefing, which focused on Games-time media operations such as accommodation and transportation, offered the Beijing Organizing Committee (BOCOG) an opportunity to give world media the updates on Games preparations as well as outlining the range of services available to them at Games time.

Over 200 editors and journalists representing world-class news agencies, newspapers, magazines and other media organizations held discussions with BOCOG departments on technical topics ranging from press accreditation, accommodation and transportation to the Main Press Center operations.

They also had a venue tour that led them through the Chinese capital and stopped at some of the major Olympic venues including the National Stadium, which is dubbed the "Bird's Nest", and the National Aquatic Center, nicknamed the "Water Cube".
