“Never miss the Budapest Open again”, advises Teresa Widlok

"Never miss the Budapest Open again", advises Teresa WidlokTeresa Widlok participated for the second time in the Budapest Open and would like to see more German Teams there the next time.

When again will you be able to help out at such a big project? – Teresa Widlok talks about managing the participant affairs at WUDC.

We all know it out of our own tournament experience: waiting to get the desired slots, the first information about the schedule, and the innate hope that the OrgComm does not forget about all the requests you had.

The sub-department ‘participant affairs’ will ensure that all participants feel well informed and taken care of so that they can travel to Berlin with no worries beforehand. Christian Landrock talked to Teresa Widlok, one of the divisional heads in charge of registration issues. Teresa has been debating for the ...
