ANOC World Beach Games Qatar 2019 / ANOC General Assembly

Doha, Qatar
Octoberr 2019
In October 2019, Event Works (EW) served as the single-system solution behind ANOCs Inaugural World Beach Games and General Assembly; supporting the planning, operations, and delivery of two events by two different teams, AT THE SAME TIME.

Unforeseen logistical challenges (including a host-site move less then 6-months ahead of the Games) put this project on a warp-speed timeline.  In just three weeks, Wiz-Team SA, in partnership with a handful of industry experts, delivered a full application set-up to support both an international multi-sport event and a high-level global conference. 

Our team provided ANOC and their LOC a custom EW solution complete with ten fully-integrated application modules, fit to welcome and coordinate the accommodations, meals, air travel, accreditation, and entries of over 1,200 athletes from 97 nations; in addition to the registration, accreditation, and outfitting of over 4,000 workforce, volunteers, and officials.

As competition kicked-off and medals were awarded, the Annual ANOC General Assembly began welcoming their dignitaries and guests from 204 nations, the IOC, International Federations, Organizing Committees and other key stakeholders.  In addition to event registration, accommodations, and transportation scheduling, the EW solution also provided General Assembly organizers with EW modules designed to manage session registrations, attendee agendas, and seating plans (EW SitPlan App).

Senior Director - Wiz-Team Italia

Stefano joined Wiz-Team in March of 2022 as the Senior Director of Wiz-Team Italia. He is charged with the oversight, management, and growth of Wiz-Team’s fourth location and second development arm in Torino, Italy.

Previously, Stefano served as a Senior Director at Deltatre where he spent 17 years supporting organisational growth and leading the delivery of their technical solutions for some of the most exciting and challenging sport events in the world including the FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro, the Olympic Games, the National Football League, and many more.

When not overseeing complex and challenging technical projects, Stefano is an avid sports enthusiast both as a fan and as a participant.  He also has a knack for music quizzes.



As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
