The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today begins a two-day Orientation Seminar with Paris 2024, following the election of Paris as the host city for the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad in 2024.
As Paris transitions from Candidate City to Organising Committee, the workshop will provide a foundation for stakeholders to start planning how to stage successful Olympic Games in seven years’ time.
“This is the first official visit to Paris, which is in immediate follow-up from the city’s exceptional bid,” said IOC Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi. “Paris’s Candidature File was remarkable in both depth and vision. Our work now is about establishing fundamentals on how we will all work together from a practical standpoint, as well as key priorities.”
The Seminar includes interactive presentations and round table discussions with Olympic and Paralympic Games experts, including athletes, on topics such as sustainability, legacy, athlete experience, stakeholder services, developing engagement strategies and more.
Dialogue and engagement were at the centre of our success as a bid, and we want to carry this idea over into our relationship with the IOC and everything we do as an Organising Committee.Tony Estanguet President of Paris 2024
Each topic includes a question and answer session to encourage open and transparent dialogue, reinforcing the IOC’s commitment to work with Paris 2024 in a spirit of partnership and co-construction.“This event marks a new milestone in our journey towards the Games in 2024, and a new chapter in our partnership with the IOC,” said President of Paris 2024 Tony Estanguet. “Dialogue and engagement were at the centre of our success as a bid, and we want to carry this idea over into our relationship with the IOC and everything we do as an Organising Committee.”
