AccorHotels become 11th sponsor of Paris 2024

Global hospitality group AccorHotels have been announced as the 11th sponsor of Paris’ bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Bid Committee say adding the company, whose headquarters are in the French capital, has brought the total revenue from their sponsorship programme to €22 million (£16.7 million/$24.6 million).

They claim the final set of partners will be revealed in the coming weeks, which will see them reach their target of €30 million (£22.8 million/$33.5 million).

Paris’ attempt to bring the Olympics and Paralympics is set to cost around €60 million (£45.6 million/$67.1 million).

As an Official Partner, the sponsors will look to support the bid by activating programmes which will help to increase public and corporate engagement.

Paris 2024 hope the company will help welcome visitors to the city should they win the bid and will “leverage its global knowledge and expertise in the hospitality industry” to support their efforts.

To give each city's supporters a chance to vote Sir Rolls developed the first stage of our own IOC 2024 vote.

You have a week to vote. if one city does not receive a simple majority over 50% of the vote, then the city with the least amount of votes will be dropped and a second round of voting will be opened for a week and so on until we get our own winner.

Not sure it is the exact location...

http://www.eurosport.fr/natation/saint-denis-preferee-a-aubervilliers-le-centre-aquatique-des-jo-2024-en-face-du-stade-de-france_sto5640105/story.shtml

It is said here that it will be located on a field that is occupied by ENGIE today and that there will be a bridge over the A1 highway.

So I would see it this way...Let's wait the official communication... :blink:

Oh no, we're in again for a debate about Paris stealing LA's image....

It's just a "dégradé" of orange and yellow, like there is on the Paris 2024 bid logo.

For me it's really on purpose and it follows a strategy.

Maybe they think they lost the last time because they were not enough aggressive?

And this time, there is a straregy to confuse LA's image?

Never mind the graphics.

".... aux start-up ...."?

"Meet up entrepreneurs"?

Seriously? Whatever happened to l'Académie?

Paris 2024 unveils Environmental Excellence Committee

Paris 2024 has launched an Environmental Excellence Committee as the French capital continues to promote a "green" bid for the Olympics and Paralympics in eight years' time.

Twenty-four people will sit on the Committee in all, with Paris organisers claiming these will all be "highly qualified personnel".

It will be chaired by Isabelle Autissier, President of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) France - an organisation Paris 2024 signed a partnership deal with in May.

Other members will be representatives of Non-Governmental Organisations, athletes and entrepreneurs.

It is hoped that the group will make "significant" contributions to the Paris bid, with quarterly meetings due to be held until the end of the bidding process in September 2017.

At the first meeting held this week, it was confirmed that work to obtain an ISO 20121 sustainability certificate - a best-practice standard developed for major events - is underway.

This certificate was held by the London 2012 Olympics as well as other major sporting events, including the ongoing European Football Championships in France.

An Olympic bid has never held the certificate before.

“We are delighted to launch the Paris 2024 Environmental Excellence Committee which further underlines the bid’s commitment to sustainability and environmental best practice," said Paris 2024 co-chairman Tony Estanguet, the triple Olympic canoeing champion who gave a speech about sustainable development in sport alongside French President François Hollande in March.

"As our bid continues to develop, we are looking forward to receiving input and recommendations from the committee which is made up of highly qualified individuals in this field.

"Sustainable development has been at the heart of our campaign since the very beginning.

"A major clean-up of the River Seine and plans for the proposed Olympic and Media Villages to be converted into a new Eco City with 5,000 homes for local people after the Games are fine examples of our pioneering vision and our ambition to deliver sustainable legacy for all Parisians.”

Paris hope their green aims will impress the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as they are in line with IOC President Thomas Bach's Agenda 2020 vision.

Athletes on the Committee include 2007 world ski-cross champion Ophélie David, London 2012 judo champion Lucie Décosse and former Arsenal and France footballer Mathieu Flamini, who is currently a free agent.

Flamini is also a co-founder of GFBiochemicals, an oil substitute company with interests in Levulinic Acid.

“The newly formed Paris 2024 Environmental Excellence Committee has an important role to play in shaping the bid vision to ensure best practices in sustainable development are met," said Autissier.

"We are delighted to get to work and our ambition to become the first Olympic bid in history to hold the ISO 20121 certificate highlights our commitment to deliver a green and sustainable Games.

“Our mission is to ensure that the environmental ambition of the Paris 2024 bid is translated into concrete actions and I’m delighted that we can draw on the experience and knowledge of such a strong committee as we aim to make the Paris 2024 Games a sustainable model and a blueprint for future major sporting events.”
