Paris 2024 organisers have penned an agreement with infrastructure solutions provider ES Global to support plans to stage the Olympic and Paralympic Games with a significant number of temporary venues.

ES Global will be an official supporter of the Games, building upon decades of experience in delivering venues for major sporting events worldwide.

The contract covers the products and services in relation to the planning, conception, provision, installation, integration, maintenance and dismantling of temporary infrastructure.

The company will provide temporary tents, scaffold structures and other facilities for the Games, helping organisers to fulfil their pledge to organise the Games with at least 95% of the venues being pre-existing or temporary.

ES Global aims to reach 90% reuse of the items, with the rest either upcycled or recycled. One of the facilities will be the structure for the sport climbing competition at Le Bourget.

“This event is in our DNA as a company, and it is testament to our growing French and mainland Europe business, that we are able to make this significant commitment to Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024,” said Cyrille d’Estienne d’Orves, managing director of ES Global France (pictured far right).

“We wish Paris 2024 and French authorities every success with the preparations, and we are very proud to play our part in providing the best possible, sustainable platform for the athletes.”

Paris 2024 president Tony Estanguet added (pictured second left): “It is thanks to experts like ES Global that we will be able to organise the biggest event in the world and the finest collective project that France has ever supported.”

Earlier this month, event solutions provider Arena was unveiled as an official temporary infrastructure supporter of Paris 2024. Under the deal, Arena’s Overlay and Event Management Services division will provide temporary infrastructure design and implementation services for at least 13 competition venues.
