For the athletes who have qualified for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, the first highlight is already upon them: The official dressing of Team Germany.

Over 600 participants and team members are expected at Messe Düsseldorf to try on their outfits at various stations before heading to the Summer Games in France in less than four weeks.

The athletes prepare themselves mentally, get dressed in the right equipment and the anticipation among the participants is literally in the air.

However, the day is not over for the athletes once they are dressed. Interviews and other PR activities are on the programme for them, during which the media will be able to interact with the nominated athletes for the last time in their home countries.

The final nomination meeting of the DOSB will also take place on 5 July as part of the dressing ceremony, which will conclude with a press conference. So it remains exciting!

We at APA had the honour of creating the right setting for the athletes and the press at the trade fair in Düsseldorf.
