Asian Games venues vicinity to be free from non-sponsor ads
The Jakarta Post
The area surrounding Asian Games venues will be free from advertisements of companies competing with the sponsors of the event.
“We have a deal with the Olympic Council of Asia [OCA] that areas within a 1- kilometer radius of the Games’ venues must be free from the marketing equipment of sponsors’ competition,” Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (INASGOC) chief Erick Thohir said on Tuesday as reported by kompas.com.
He said the policy would be enforced soon. “We will sort them out gradually,” he said.
One of the affected spots is the Go-Food Festival food court by ride-hailing app Go-Jek at Gelora Bung Karno sport complex in Central Jakarta, as Go-Jek is a competitor of Grab, one of the Games’ official sponsors.
Erick said the food court must be altered during the duration of the Games, slated for Aug. 18 to Sept. 2.
“It can remain open, but it depends on what it is called. If it’s a food court, then it must be neutral,” he said. (ami)
