Paris 2024 President Tony Estanguet and Chairman and CEO of French hospitality major Accor Group Sébastien Bazin have announced a partnership at the Destination France Summit, which took place on 8 November 2021 in Paris.
Through this partnership, Accor will offer its services to athletes and the media in their respective villages. It will leverage the group’s loyalty programme ALL (Accor Live Limitless) and provide a digital hotel booking platform for Paris 2024.
The platform will be provided by Resa Events, a subsidiary of the Accor group, to cover the French hotel market around Olympic and Paralympic venues.
Accor’s Bazin said, “We share great many values with Paris 2024, including the importance of working together, uncompromisingly high standards, generosity and flying the flag for France on the world stage. Accor is proud to partner with the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, when athletes and spectators from the world over will come to France to see what we have to offer. Our employees and teams are already pulling out all the stops to show the world what hospitality means in France and offer everyone an unforgettable experience and stay during the greatest sporting event on the planet. Paris is hosting the Games, and we will be ready to host the people who are making them happen.”
Estanguet said, “I am delighted to welcome Accor into the Paris 2024 family. This partnership marks the culmination of our close collaboration with one of the world’s leading hotel groups, right since the bidding phase. It reiterates our shared objective to offer all those involved in the Olympic and Paralympic Games – the athletes, officials and media – a service and experience that reflect our special take on welcoming in France when we host them for Paris 2024. Benefiting from optimal living conditions, they will be able to focus on what really counts – the show and their performance.”
