FIBA Women’s World Championships

For FIBA’s 2018 Women’s Basketball World Cup competition, Event-Works (EW) provided a one-stop-shop solution to support the management and coordination of the “FIBA Family Delegation” event experience.

From registration to departures, the EW platform serviced the detailed and interconnected needs of the FIBA Family Delegation operations team.  The end-to-end support guided delegation members through single registration process that collected personal, travel, and accommodation details in one easy to follow experience.  Our dynamic webforms help create a step-by-step roadmap for registrants so they can easily understand what they need to do to secure their attendance and logistics at the event. 

While registrants were busy entering information, back-office operations teams were able to leverage the power of EW’s live reporting and change management features to seamless integrate their data with hotel and transportation providers.  Real time rooming lists and track changes features helped ensure all teams were on the same page even for those last-minute requests!

The movement of people in and around an event is only one dimension of event management.  In many events, the ticket management process is a critical piece to ensuring a positive experience for guests, and to fulfilling contractual obligations! EW has a solution for this too.  The EW Ticketing module supported FIBA’s goals and business process for managing the ticket registration, request, distribution, and reporting needs for their partner groups.


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.
