The hotel even hosted the 300 wheelchair athletes, a unique clientele, during the championships which were held in Germany between August 16 and 26.
“We are one of the only companies in Europe that can accommodate so many wheelchair guests at the same time. It is a great honour to be able to take care of so many athletes,” said Magnus Berglund, accessibility director, Scandic Hotels.
The Wheelchair Basketball World Championships is the second largest event for disabled athletes after the Paralympics. It is held every four years, and this year, 50,000 people were estimated to have attended the games in Hamburg.
