The opening ceremony took place at the National Indoor Arena and the competition took place at the neighbour National Exhibition Centre. 57 nations took part. This was the most countries that any gymnastics world championships had had at the time. This was the first time that the nations which formed the Soviet Union competed under their own state.

Another significant format was that this was the first world championships to have only 24 gymnasts in the all around with 2 gymnasts per nation instead of 3.
