Preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Games Experience Programme

Co-creation, the incorporation of the New Norm principles and optimal integration of learnings from and for the Paralympics are the main features of the new Games Experience Programme, which will be implemented for the first time in the run-up to and during Tokyo 2020.

Previously known as the “Observer Programme” and as reported in the OGKM News in May, the revamped version will be more tailored to the needs and lifecycles of the various participating OCOG representatives. For the programme at Tokyo 2020, the Paris 2024 organisers will be the key target audience, given their role as the host of the next Summer Games edition.

OGKM’s Games Experience Programme (GEP) team will hold kick-off meetings with the Tokyo 2020 functions and their IKM Project team between 25 and 30 August 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, in order to discuss the logistics and format of the programme, roles and responsibilities and the content and schedule of the different activities, including the venue visits.
