This decision came post a comprehensive technical inspection carried out by prominent members from EWF and the Turkish weightlifting federation. EWF’s delegation, headed by President Kt Antonio CONFLITTI and Treasurer Dr. Astrit HASANI, was notably impressed with the sprawling and state-of-the-art infrastructure of the Sport Hall. Their Turkiye counterparts, led by Federation President Talat UNLU and the celebrated Olympian turned-Vice President Yasin ARSLAN, along with two other federation staff, facilitated the visit ensuring a thorough review of all facilities.

It isn’t just the sports venue that’s getting all the attention. The hospitality sector in Antalya is also gearing up to host the influx of participants, officials, and fans. The primary hotel chosen for accommodating attendees is the luxurious Megasaray Westbeach Antalya. Strategically designed, its underground level will serve as the training hall, while the first floor is set to house the accreditation point, a dedicated ballroom for the congress — which will later be transformed for the closing gala dinner — and a meeting room for Executive Board, Committees, and Commission meetings

One of the more generous gestures from the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is their commitment to house all International Technical Officials (ITOs) in single rooms. 

With state-of-the-art facilities, comfortable accommodations, and an unparalleled passion for the sport, Antalya is undoubtedly setting the stage for a memorable 2024 EWF European Championships.

“It is with great admiration that I reflect upon our recent visit to Antalya. The Antalya Sports Hall exemplifies world-class infrastructure, ensuring that the 2024 EWF European Championships will be held to the highest standards. The meticulous preparations showcased by the Megasaray Westbeach Antalya for accommodation further demonstrate the commitment to excellence that we strive for. As the EWF President, I express profound confidence that the upcoming Championships will be a beacon of excellence, reflecting the dedication and professionalism of everyone involved. I extend my gratitude to all stakeholders for their unwavering commitment to quality and precision.”
