As scheduled, the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) for the 7th Asian Winter Games Astana-Almaty 2011 became fully operational on 10 January. The IBC, based in the Almaty Towers complex in the city’s business district, has already welcomed the staff of IGBS – who are making the final preparations ahead of the forthcoming Games – and will shortly see the arrival of its first Rights Holders.
