NVT group technical director Tom Mitchell said: “We are delighted to be involved in Glasgow 2018. We will be deploying technology solutions which were born from our past engagements, including the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, plus additional technology innovation, such as our ViiA Cloud Solution developed over recent years, to make sure that we fully support Glasgow 2018 in being a resounding success.”

Colin Hartley, Glasgow 2018 championships director, said: “NVT Group joins a growing family of sponsors who will help ensure this new event becomes a highlight on the global sporting calendar, demonstrating why Scotland has a reputation as the perfect destination for major events.”
