Paris Olympics and Paralympics 2024
An inspiring, innovative, responsible and attractive Region
This inspiring, innovative and responsible vision is reflected in major investments in the Games. With over 240 million euros earmarked for the construction and renovation of a wide range of infrastructures, Paris Region is fully committed to this major international sporting event. This makes Paris Region the second-largest public funder after the French government.
However, Paris Region's commitment is not merely financial; it is an investment in the future of the Region and a promise to deliver an unforgettable experience. The world is invited to witness not just a sporting event, but a celebration of the values that define the essence of the Paris Region - a place where dreams converge, and where excellence and creativity can flourish. With 18 sports represented next summer in a dozen of sites in Seine-Saint-Denis, Hauts-de-Seine, Yvelines and Seine-et-Marne, Paris Region will also be in the spotlight, beyond the borders of Paris-intra muros.
Responsibility is at the heart of Paris Region's identity and hosting the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games is a testament to this commitment. The Paris Region recognizes the importance of sustainable practices and environmental awareness, integrating them into event planning and execution. From environmentally friendly infrastructure to initiatives to promote social responsibility, Paris Region aims to set new standards in hosting responsible events, leaving a lasting positive impact on the local community and global audience. In particular, by promoting the accessibility and inclusion of disabled people, in sports of course, but also in transport, tourism, training and so on.
It's also a message of confidence and optimism sent to the whole world, on which the Paris Region will be able to capitalize in the long term.
Choose Paris Region, Our Services, and the Olympic & Paralympic Games 2024
Choose Paris Region is a catalyst for economic growth, innovation and attractiveness. Promoting the Region's assets, attracting international investment, fostering innovation and sustainable development, supporting companies wishing to set up or expand in Paris Region - these are our main missions. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, this role takes on even greater importance, as the eyes of the world turn to Paris Region. As a result, international companies are increasingly recognizing the strategic importance of locating in a region hosting an event of worldwide stature. And indeed, many foreign companies are partnering with or officially supporting the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
International companies, such as Equinix and H-Hotels.com, exemplify the success stories facilitated by Choose Paris Region. Equinix's commitment to environmental sustainability, demonstrated through the heat recovery initiative benefiting the Olympic Aquatic Center, reflects the company’s emphasis on innovation and sustainability. It is also the french department which has the fewest municipal swimming pools and therefore the fewest children who know how to swim. The Olympic and Paralympic Games will change this by creating a positive impact for the population.
Meanwhile, the establishment of H-Hotels.com in the iconic Tour Pleyel shows just how essential international companies are in contributing to job creation and infrastructure development.
As Paris Region gears up for the 2024 Games, Choose Paris Region stands ready to provide dedicated support for projects associated with the event. The agency's comprehensive assistance, encompassing local recruitment, visa support, legal/logistical aid, and collaboration with local authorities and service providers, underscores its commitment to ensuring the success of initiatives related to the Games.
