It may be Olympics number two for temporary overlay suppliers Global Experience Specialists (GES), as director of live events, Justin Squires (pictured), met up with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Organising Committee recently in Brazil.
GES designed, managed and delivered temporary fit out overlay to 27 venues during the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
Acknowledging GES’ experience with large-scale sporting events, the 2016 Committee brought Squires in to consult on its plan for 29 Olympic and Paralympic sport venues.
Squires commented: “As an ISO 20121 compliant company, and an experienced delivery partner to previous Olympic and other sporting events, I felt that GES was able to make a useful and significant contribution to the Rio 2016 Organising Committee’s planning and specification for the Games.”
Industry eyes are staying firmly zeroed in on Rio de Janeiro and Brazil post-World Cup, with only two years to go until the next summer Olympics in Rio and reportedly just 10 per cent of the infrastructure complete.
