World Sailing Annual Conference & General Assembly – 1,000 Delegates

World Sailing
Barcelona, Spain
November 2016

In 2016, World Sailing Annual Conference and General Assembly welcomed over 1,000 delegates to Barcelona Spain; Event Works (EW) not only managed registration, accreditation and access control, but facilitated eVoting for elections!

The EW Registration module empowers event operations teams to build lists of potential attendees and invite them to register, all in one place.  With a simple click, identified individuals receive auto-generated invitations fit with personalized and secure links to their registration profiles.


On-the-ground support by Wiz-Team SA boosted the size of World Sailing’s operations to better manage and support the accreditation process.  Like many of our larger events, access control is key to a safe and coordinated event.  The EW Access Control Gate App ensured only approved or eligible individuals gained entry to a variety of secured events (i.e. VIP dinners, voting sessions, etc.).

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.
