Team Alinghi Arrival In Geneva


Team Alinghi Arrival In Geneva

AUCKLAND - March 5, 2003 - Lots of information - at times contradictory - has been recently published on the subject of welcoming the members of Team Alinghi to Geneva. This document is designed to answer the numerous questions.

WHO IS IN CHARGE OF ORGANISING THE CELEBRATION ?
The celebration taking place to welcome the members of Team Alinghi is organised by Team Alinghi and their partners (UBS, Infonet, Audemars Piguet and Riri) with the support of the federal, regional and municipal authorities, as well as the l'Aéroport International de Genève Cointrin.

IS THERE MEDIA ACCESS AT THE AIRPORT ARRIVAL ?
On Saturday March 8, 2003 at 13:00, a charter plane transporting Team Alinghi and the America's Cup will land at the Geneva Cointrin airport. It will taxi up to Gate 19 where the Team will be welcomed by the federal and regional authorities, as well the Mayor of Geneva.

ALL MEDIA must present themselves at the press centre in the airport no later than 12:00 equipped with a valid press card or the media accreditation pass from the Auckland media centre. Photographers and cameramen who would like to be present on the tarmac will be escorted to the plane. Other media will be directed into an area designated for the press conference.

WILL THERE BE A PRESS CONFERENCE?
The press conference will take place directly following the welcome by the authorities.

A similtaneous French/English - English/French translation will be proposed and about thirty audio connections will be available. The interviewees will be MM Ernesto Bertarelli, Russell Coutts and Michel Bonnefous. Also available for a question and answer session will be Jochen Schuemann, Grant Simmer, Rolf Vrolijk, and Pierre Yves Jorand.
In order to assist us in welcoming you in the best possible way, thank you for confirming your presence by email at the address media@alinghi.com

WHERE SHOULD THE PUBLIC GO TO WELCOME THE MEMBERS OF TEAM ALINGHI ?
Because of the car show in Geneva, we recommend that the public do not come to the airport as it will not be possible to access the tarmac. We suggest that the public come directly to La Rotonde, in front of the Brunschwick monument from 19:00.

WHAT PRESENTATIONS ARE PROPOSED TO THE PUBLIC ?
From 19:00 a musical group will be performing on site and images will be projected on a giant screen. The public will be able to welcome Team Alinghi and the America's Cup and then a spectacular sound and light show will begin. The music will continue into the evening. Refreshments will be available.

HOW WILL THE PUBLIC BE INFORMED?
We are counting on the radios and daily papers to relay this information to the public and insist that those who wish to welcome the Team must go directly to the Rotonde from 19:00.
