The fast-growing company will deliver a suite of fully integrated and customisable applications to deliver services in accreditation, access control, sport entries and qualifications, and the baton relay.
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games are a major event which will see around 4,500 athletes from 72 nations and territories compete in 19 sports and 8 para-sports across 14 competition venues from 28 July until 8 August 2022.

We can’t wait to supply our innovative games-tested tools and event management expertise to deliver this world-class event.”
Birmingham 2022 will use Wiz-Team’s all-in-one event management solution Event-Works to support the activation and management of over 80,000 accredited individuals across a Games ecosystem spanning more than 25 venues. Event-Works will also serve the organising committee to coordinate the entry and inscription of the 4,500 athletes competing next summer.
