Main Press Centre (MPC)
A temporary main press centre is planned at Holmenkollen, by the top of Midtstubakken, next door to the international broadcasting centre. It is also planned to have a media cafeteria here.
The MPC will be within walking distance of the various arenas: Holmenkollbakken, the cross country stadium and Midtstubakken.
The MPC will offer working space for accredited media, press services and information during the World Championships. The press conferences after the various competitions will also take place here.
A sub-centre for photographers is planned at the cross country arena, as well as smaller premises for the press at the bottom of Midstubakken.
