iEDM Appointed as The Official Overlay Delivery Partner for the 16th FINA World Championships (25m) 2022.

The 16th FINA World Championships (25m) will be held in Melbourne later this year at the state-of-the-art Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC). Running from the 13th-18th of December, it will be the first time Melbourne has hosted the event and we are proud to be announced as the Official Overlay Delivery Partner.

The FINA World Championships (25m) will showcase over 1,000 athletes from around 180 countries. It stands to be a bumper event for aquatic sport in general with prize money to be equally distributed to men and women from 1st to 8th place across individual athlete categories and relay teams. There will also be an impressive US$25,000 paid to the swimmers who set new World Records during the Championships.

Our Melbourne team are excited to be delivering a world-class overlay for another great international event with MSAC just a short stroll from the iEDM offices in South Melbourne. iEDM will be responsible for the Design, Site Management and WHS Management for the temporary overlay required at the venue, which includes a challenging temporary 2,000 seat grandstand.

Our relationship with Swimming Australia was built on the successful design and delivery of the temporary overlay for the 2014 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships on the Gold Coast. Below are some images of our overlays.

That success has led to yet another great event partnership for the 16th Fina World Championships (25m).

“It was a rewarding reflection of the success of the Pan Pacs project, that Swimming Australia reached out to us for assistance and advice when they were awarded the rights to Melbourne 2022” Globally, the FINA swimming events are really well orchestrated fan experiences and our Melbourne team is really excited to be able to contribute to this opportunity. It is a great way for us to start the decade of major international events coming into Australia” – Liam Howe, Managing Director of iEDM
