200 sportspeople from 20 countries came to Oulu for the European Disc Golf Championships
The event arranged in summer 2016 in Oulu gathered 200 sportspeople from 20 countries as well as wide audience of disc golf fans.
‘’Cooperation with Oulu Convention Bureau and BusinessOulu was very easy. We agreed from the very beginning that we would like to inform as many people as possible about the Disc Golf Championships. We also got to use BusinessOulu unit’s wide network of connections while marketing the event, which was very beneficial for us. Cooperation with cities is often perceived as uneasy but the Oulu City Greenery Department proved to be very flexible. Meri-Toppila disc golf course was ready prepared just in time and according to the established requirements. Also our last minute additional suggestions were well taken care of. We have cooperated with the Oulu City Sports Services for 15 years. We know each other well so it was easy to start working on another project together. However, this was our first experience of such intensive cooperation and it turned out to be a great one. We have managed to organise a professional, high-quality event for sportspeople and disc golf fans. If possible, we will gladly work together again in the future,’’ says the tournament director Erno Väyrynen.
