Delivery of the DAGBS Doha 2006 final report


On 25 January 2007 at the DAGOC office in Doha, Francis Tellier, CEO of DAGBS accompanied by Tony Gavin and Peter Angell, officially handed over the DAGBS Doha 2006 Final Report to Yousef Mohamed Al Othman, Deputy Director General Operations, Ahmad Abdullah Al-Khulaifi Deputy Director General Corporate Support and Patrick Furlong, Director Broadcast and Media Services.

“Appointing DAGBS as the Host Broadcaster of the 15th Asian Games Doha 2006 has been one of the best decisions DAGOC ever made” said Yousef Mohamed Al Othman. He further thanked Francis Tellier and the DAGBS team “for the excellent job achieved by the 50/50 joint venture between HBS and TWI and for the very successful delivery of the broadcast operations”.

Francis Tellier thanked DAGOC for the trust they have put in DAGBS and also underlined the permanent mutually cooperative attitude both parties had all the way through the project.

He then concluded by quoting the final report: "Although the amount of information and know-how included in this report is huge, the human expertise cannot be included. The 15th Asian Games Doha 2006 were an immensely demanding and enjoyable undertaking for the DAGBS team. We will never thank DAGOC enough for giving us this opportunity. The challenge for the followers is now tremendous; it goes without saying that DAGBS would be happy and honoured to provide further support…"
