FIVB – Volleyball Men’s World Championship

Italy & Bulgaria
September-October 2018
Accreditation and access control, Event-Works (EW) helps operations teams in both Italy and Bulgaria manage zones consistently and efficiently for FIVB first ever multi-country World Championships.

For FIVB’s Men’s World Championships, more than 3’500 accreditations where allocated to attendees, athletes, and officials.  The user-friendly EW Accommodation module helped equip management teams from a variety of operational locations create, assign, and manage access rights across their designated lists.  For some groups, like media, EW Webforms were enabled to run an on-site registration and approval processes to streamline applicaiton, access, and entry procedures.  The result, quicker decision making, quicker troubleshooting, and a consistent experience for attendees across the entire event.

Enabling on-site management teams to monitor and manage the flow of people in and around designated areas gives them the ability to adapt and respond to changes much quicker than anyone with Wiz-Team SA.  They know best where people can and cannot go. Giving them the training and tools needed to execute their best plans ensures that their event experience is delivered at its best.

As an added bonus, coupling EW Accreditation module with powerful access control reporting gave event organizers the opportunity to accurately track venue usage, making invoicing simple for post-event reconciliation.  As an added bonus, the popular EW Access Control Gate App functions in both online and offline modes.

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.
