Media activities for Incheon Asian Games

07 Apr 2014
Incheon, Korea: With some 7,000 media expected to attend the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea, this September, media services, logistics and activities are high on the list of priorities for the organising committee in the host city this week. On Wednesday, April 9, the OCA Media Committee will convene at the IAGOC HQ in Meet-you-all Tower under the Chairman, Charles Lo, President of the Macau NOC and member of the OCA Executive Board.

Items on the agenda include an update on the OCA’s official newsletter, Sporting Asia, which was launched in 2009, the OCA website (
www.ocasia.org), media attendance at the two OCA multi-sport events in 2013 and social media guidelines for the Incheon Asian Games.

The following day, on Thursday, April 10, IAGOC will host the World Press Briefing at Songdo Convensia for some 200 domestic and international media.

The morning briefing will be followed by a venue tour, including the Main Press Centre, Media Village and Asiad Main Stadium, which will stage the opening ceremony on September 19, the athletics competition and the closing ceremony on October 4.

The World Press Briefing for the 17th Asian Games follows the World Broadcasters Meeting for rights-holding broadcasters which was held in January at the Sheraton Incheon Hotel in Songdo and attended by some 180 representatives of the Incheon Host Broadcasting Management and the 17 rights-holding broadcasters as well as SK Telecom, the official telecommunications sponsor, and Hanjin, the official logistics supplier. 


The 2014 Incheon Asian Games online accreditation process for the Korean and international media began in February and runs until May 20.

The Media Accreditation Guide and other detailed information and instructions concerning the online media accreditation process can be found at
Media covering the 2014 Asian Games must be affiliated with organisations that are authorised by their respective National Olympic Committees.  Therefore, media in Asia need to contact their NOCs for the information and procedures for the media accreditation process specific to their own countries.  The IDs and passwords that are needed to log into the online accreditation system will be provided by the NOCs. 

All media accreditation applicants must submit their applications through the online accreditation system.
As for the international news and photo agencies and media groups that are not under the jurisdiction of a particular NOC, and the media organisations from countries that are not part of the OCA, they need to contact the Media Support Team of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Organising Committee (IAGOC) at
mediad@incheon2014ag.org for the media accreditation procedure.
