The EYOWF 2011 Organising Committee has expanded through opening a new and important department, which will primarily communicate with the national Olympic Committees and provide full services at the same time. The head of this department is Marie Sokolová (see photo), who has successfully held a similar position during the Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec in 2009, during which she worked closely with the attachés of each national delegation. There are 49 countries expected to participate at the 2011 Festival.
