The organization
El Rally was carried out by the FCC CR, Federation of Camping and Caravanning of the Czech Republic, member of the FICC since 1993 and participating regularly on all European FICC Rallies. 
The parade went through the Rally site, all displaying colourful dresses and waving flags that lead nicely to the opening ceremony, attended by local government authorities and supported by the FICC President Joao Alves Pereira and the Council.  

Location
The venue was an excellent location, the “Prague Exhibition Centre”, at only a few km from Prague centre and near the village of Letnany offering participants a wide range of services, shopping with markets and supermarkets, etc. Metro station and buses were also nearby, at a walking distance, 300 meters approx.; so that people could travel quickly and comfortably to the centre of Prague as often as they wished.

Entertainment
The Rally was livened up every day with bands and native singers. The International Evening, in which each country can present a show, also had a great success with a large influx of visitors. This is a traditional show introduced in every FICC Rally which usually is well acclaimed and sometimes, despite being amateurs, they display imaginative and amazing performances.

Premises and facilities
The central part of the Rally had Access to WI-FI. In the main building was located a section with retail items. The participants could get information related to travel and excursions at the counter enabled in the reception area. There was a bar, a restaurant and information services during the whole day.

Due to bad weather, open air conditions were difficult, federations and clubs had to struggle to organize their meetings, these invitations are usually done in every FICC Rally; after all, weather conditions were not enough to cloud the atmosphere and warmth of the meetings.
