‘On Location’ to offer hospitality packages for Paralympic Games fans

DUBAI, 16 days ago

With less than 100 days to go until the start of the Paralympic Games Paris 2024 (August 28 to September 8), sports fans in the MENA region wishing to watch some of the world’s most talented and inspirational athletes in action can secure their spot via On Location, official hospitality provider for the event.

Taking place over 11 days, from, the Games will feature 4,400 Para athletes, with On Location providing hospitality packages across eight sports (wheelchair basketball, para-athletics, para judo, para swimming, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair tennis, para cycling track and blind football) along with the Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

Some iconic sporting venues will feature at the Paralympic Games Paris 2024, including Roland-Garros, home of the French Open, and the Stade de France, the national stadium which hosts the French team’s home matches in both football and rugby.

Official hospitality packages include top-category tickets and access to premium hospitality spaces at the various sporting venues.

Paul Caine, President, On Location and IMG Events, said: "As the Official Hospitality Provider for the Paralympic Games Paris 2024, our mission is to shape unforgettable moments that celebrate diversity and create connection between one and all.

“The values of the Paralympic Games - courage, inclusion and determination - resonate deeply with our approach. We are honoured to contribute to this exceptional event by offering hospitality packages that reflect these fundamental principles and create unique hospitality experiences for all the fans we look forward to welcoming.”

Charlotte Fairbank, French wheelchair tennis player, said: "Sport has always been a catalyst for emancipation for those of us living with a disability.

“These Paralympic Games, with the introduction of this first hospitality programme, embody this deep commitment to equal opportunity and the celebration of diversity.

“It's an honour to be part of this iconic event, where every athlete has the opportunity to shine and inspire the world, while reflecting progress towards a more inclusive and equitable society. At these Paralympic Games, we celebrate the true essence of sport and human diversity.”

For the first time in the history of the Paralympic Games, the Opening Ceremony will not take place in a stadium, but in the heart of Paris, between the Champs Élysées and Place de la Concorde.

To mark the occasion, On Location is offering a hospitality experience in which art meets the Paralympic movement through an exhibition playing on the parallel between the sporting gesture of a Para athlete and reproduced in a work of art.

This "Garden Party" will take place in the Jardin des Tuileries, with access to outstanding views of the Paralympic athletes' parade during the Opening Ceremony.

The shared lounges of the Paris 2024 hospitality programme offer sports fans quality service and unique, innovative hospitality packages at some of the most renowned competition venues in and around Paris, including the Champ-de-Mars Arena and Paris La Défense Arena.

Guests can choose their favourite sports session with Category A tickets, which guarantee priority entry to the venue (where available) and an unobstructed view of the competitions.

With a guaranteed ticket to a selected sports session, Fan Kit package holders will enjoy priority entry to the venue (where available), as well as an unobstructed view from Category A or B seats. To keep guests energized throughout the event, a light snack and a drink will be included in their Fan Kit. – TradeArabia News Service
