Celebrating success at the World Chess Championships

Dec 20, 2018

In a cross-team tie-up, W Enterprise and W’s Media & Entertainment division brought the 2018 FIDE World Chess Championship Match to London for the first time at the spectacular and historic College building in Holborn. Managing over 15 events across the three-week tournament period, W’s teams ran the red carpet with some of the most extraordinary talent in attendance to watch Magnus Carlsen defend his world title against US challenger Fabiano Caruana. With guests ranging from A-list actor Woody Harrelson through to Sky News anchor Kay Burley, W’s team was able to deliver over 2,000 pieces of coverage across the three-week period, including the highly coveted front-page spot of the Financial Times.

Here are some of the best snaps taken from the event…
