ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade
launches licensing program
With the 18th ISF Gymnasiade (School Summer Games) – Jinjiang 2020 approaching, the licensing program has been seeing the Executive Committee’s efforts on marketing development. So far, the Committee has signed and is going to sign cooperation agreements with 15 sponsors, 9 authorized manufacturers included.
According to the Committee, the 15 sponsors are from different industries such as clothing manufacturing, insurance, transport, logistics, English training, and foods, and with products in licensing categories, including apparel, tea, drinking water, and water purification equipment. Besides, among the 18 individual events, basketball, athletics, aerobics, and diving have met with their title sponsors.
The Committee, in collaboration with its franchising owner Jinjiang National Sports City Co. Ltd (aka Jinjiang Ticheng Company), will work to promote the design and production as well as the marketing of licensed products together with 9 authorized manufacturers, including major local food manufacturers such as Lilv Group, Fupaiyuan Co. Ltd, Labixiaoxin Co. Ltd, Quanlitang Co. Ltd, Lvcaoxiang Group, Haolishi Group, Aixiangqin Co. Ltd, Jiade Group and Haolinju Co. Ltd.
“A great number of qualified enterprises have won out to participate in the development and production of licensed products. And by doing so, not just the Committee but also the qualified enterprises can benefit from the cooperation. While the enterprises are going to design and produce the high-quality licensed products for the Gymnasiade, the Committee will also build a platform for enterprises to showcase their products with featured elements to the public at home and abroad.” Chen Zihua, General Manager of Jinjiang Ticheng Company, further pointed out that licensed products of ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade are major carriers to convey Chinese culture and the stories of Jinjiang to the participating countries. Therefore, the Gymnasiade-themed products will feature elements relating to Jinjiang and include some local characteristics such as the city landscape, traditional culture, and the city’s major industries.
It is worth mentioning that Lilv Group, as one of the authorized manufacturers of ISF Gymnasiade licensed products, has launched its licensing collections of ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade at the 104th China Food and Drinks Fair (CFDF).
“We’ve put the elements of ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade into the design of the packing for licensed products like nori and rice cracker, and highlighted those elements while setting up the booth at the fair.” Wu Hongyan, CEO of Lilv Group, said that they hope to introduce their brand and ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade to more people through their attendance at CFDF.
Another authorized manufacturer, Haolishi (Fujian) Food Technology Co., Ltd, also showcased the design elements of Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade at the fair, which will be followed by a release of their collection of licensed products.
With the Games approaching, the Executive Committee of ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade is currently soliciting sponsors and authorized manufacturers of licensed products from all over the country. Meanwhile, they will open up for the investment agencies outside Jinjiang.
71 volunteers recruited by ISF
Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade
After strict and professional selection, the result of volunteer recruitment of the ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade was released a few days ago. 71 excellent candidates were recruited and officially became the ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade volunteers.
According to Wang Sisi, Director of the Publicity Department of CYL Jinjiang Municipal Committee, as recruiting student volunteers in 22 universities and schools, the Organizing Committee for the ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade also announced social recruitment and targeted recruitment in all professionals within Jinjiang. More than 600 applicants were received, among which over 90 civilian and talented volunteers were shortlisted for the interview. The interview was to assess the candidates’ appearance and attire, personality, language skills, professional expertise, as well as capacity to cope with emergencies.
All the 71 recruits are natives of Quanzhou and Jinjiang. “All these volunteers can communicate in two or more languages. They will be mainly responsible for the work of reception and interpretation,” Wang said that compared with student volunteers, social volunteers are older and with more working experience and might be better prepared to deal with emergencies. “Besides, they are more flexible in time. Some positions may require shift work, which may be a challenge for student volunteers who should probably commute to and from school every day, while social volunteers have no such concern.”
In the next stage, CYL Jinjiang Municipal Committee will provide general training for those volunteers. Capital University of Physical Education and Sports has completed the recording of the online training course. The offline training will be carried out in different levels and categories by instructors, group leaders and experienced peers.
Lin Mingming, a novice mother:
To serve the ISF Jinjiang
2020 Gymnasiade wholeheartedly
Lin Mingming from Chendai, Jinjiang is one of the 71 volunteers recruited by the ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade.
She is 28 years old and works as an administration staff. As a graduate of English major with the certification of Test for English Major Band 8, she is excellent at writing and speaking in English. Besides, years of working experience make her rigorous, conscientious, and responsible, with all the qualities required to become a volunteer. Lin has actively volunteered, both as a student and in her job, in various service activities such as nursing the elderly, the campaign of bringing culture to the countryside, and cleaning up the city.
Early in 2018, Lin had participated in a one-week closed training program for foreign affairs staff organized by the Executive Committee for ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade. She had mastered sports terminology and learned how to communicate in English in scenarios like shopping, dining, and using medical care. She also taught herself knowledge on team reception, etiquette in cross-cultural communication, and foreign affairs protocols.
Being a mother of a one-year-old baby, Lin’s often challenged with work-life balance. When being asked how to balance her family life and the work as a full-time volunteer serving at the games for at least eight days, she said that she's got all supports from work and family, which leaves her no worry, and allows her to work wholeheartedly in everything she does.
“This is my first time to participate in such a large-scale sports event. I will study hard and take professional training to learn how to manage a heavy workload. Hopefully, I can not only improve myself through this event but present the image of our local volunteers to the participants from all over the world,” said the novice mother.
Huang Yanqi, a college-bound senior:
To be a devoted volunteer
Among the shortlisted volunteers, there is a college-bound student named Huang Yanqi. Different from those working candidates, he is now a senior student of Quanzhou No.5 Middle School.
Living downtown in Quanzhou, Yanqi is studying at the International Department of Quanzhou No.5 Middle School. He has been pre-admitted by one of the renowned universities due to his outstanding academic performance. He is proficient in English with a remarkable TOFEL score of 110. As a top student in his class, Yanqi is the designated interpreter for his foreign teachers at every teacher-parent meeting. He’s been playing football since primary school, and is an excellent player in the school football team.
At a young age, Yanqi has rich experience in volunteer service. He’s served as a volunteer at the train station to help the travelers during the Spring Festival and served tea for free on West Street during summer vacation. He’s volunteered to be an usher in Jinjiang Municipal Hospital, donated his allowance to one of the Hope Schools, and visited the students he once helped. “It was out of curiosity and the idea of enriching my experience that I began volunteering. But later in practice, there were so many unforgettable and heart-warming moments that have taught me the true value of volunteer work,” he said.
Yanqi also said with a smile that he has a particular affinity with ISF Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade. He once took part in the Gymnasiade Image Ambassador Selection and was shortlisted in the final competition. He is still impressed by those wonderful and precious experiences. “Ke Xipeng, the winner of the competition, is my senior schoolmate. I’d like to devote myself to the Jinjiang 2020 Gymnasiade like her, no matter in what way and in which position,” he said.
To Yanqi, the most important thing for being a volunteer is to be devoted, responsible, and professional. And now he is ready for it!
