“The fair brought in hundreds of people and many were interested in the Paralympic Movement and the function of the IPC” Ms. Kellermann said.
Taking place from 16-18 April at the German Sport and Olympia Museum in Cologne, Germany, IPC’s Information and Records Co-ordinator Nora Kellermann was on hand in a special booth at the event. Along with general information on the Paralympic Movement, various publications were made available for the public.
“The fair brought in hundreds of people and many were interested in the Paralympic Movement and the function of the IPC,” Ms. Kellermann said. “Many pieces of information about the IPC were distributed to the public.”
Held in co-operation with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the event saw many visitors come to the IPC’s booth, with high interest in disability sport, the history of the IPC and its current work, as well as how the Paralympic Games are organized. More specifically, information on the IPC Documentation Centre was given with inquiries into the acquiring and management of collections and their content.
About 200 collectors and dealers participated at the 15th World Olympic Collector’s Fair 2010, bringing Games memorabilia from all over the world.
