there with a group of well trained people in the different areas
to secure the smooth running of the event.”
Like in the previous world events, the competition venues will
be the Multi-Sports Gymnasium in Tijuana and the State
Auditorium in Mexicali. The hotels in Tijuana will be Gran
Tijuana and Fiesta Inn while in Mexicali will be Araiza and

and other promotional items. The group included Alberto Arreola,
president of the Baja California Volleyball Association, and
Jorge Almada, director or public relations and promotions.
The other Junior FIVB World Championships of next year will be
in Izmir and Ankara, Turkey (Men) and Brno and Prosthejov, Czech
