Sport has and will have a guaranteed communication value. Nevertheless, it is important to open the realms of possibilities in order to satisfy more profound and diverse needs.
Our motto is broadening our horizon so that we can satisfy an increasingly more demanding clientele, eager to obtain an ever improving return on investment.
During the Olympic Games of Sydney 2000, we offered certain partners of the French Olympic Committee solutions to local requests. After being in Sydney for a year, we became a Franco-Australian Destination Management Company (DMC). Our focus was coordinating entertaining activities, evening events and original extras which were tailor-made and luxurious.
=> This first experience showed us the importance of details and local environment within a global hospitality service. It is down to our extensive knowledge about the location and good local contacts that we performed to such a high standard.
During the football world cup In South Korea and Japan in 2002, and the Olympic Games in Athens 2004, we launched global events for partners of the French Football Federation, members of the Olympic family or partners of the French sporting bodies without having any right of entry to the events!
=> In order to deliver quality and reliability without direct access we had to understand the niceties of an organizing committee better than the reputable players in the market do. Similarly, we had to become experts about the countries in which we were offering our services so as to come up with the perfect logistics, without actually being locals…
Thanks to the Olympic Games of Turin 2006, the Aristeia agency officially made its entry into the Olympic world. Within a familiar European environment, we put ourselves at the service of multiple international agencies, (we were practically as the event took place at few kilometres from the French border).
=> Through this project, we networked with other international actors in the market who were essential to our development. We were also able to experience the advantages of holding an official position.
In Beijing 2008, as well as in South Africa 2010, we acquired essential experience as:
Throughout the Olympic Games of 2008, we regularly kept in touch with the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, the Beijing Organizing committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG) in Beijing, the 17 National Olympic Committees and among these, the main international agencies within our business sector… In total, we were responsible for 6,500 people during the fifteenth Olympic Games. Nonetheless our network has expanded even more. The Football World Cup in South Africa allowed us to break into the world of Fifa and its intermediaries…
Project Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 allowed the Aristeia agency to surpass its developmental prospects. Thanks to the scope and complexity of this project (with a turnover of 17 million euros), we have developed important skills in our field: Handling hospitality during major sporting events.
From 2008, we have achieved a true maturity within our business sector as a result of our ability to cope with the most complex solutions in the field of hospitality. Consequently, we are able to perform in a variety of areas within the hospitality sector: sport, culture, entertainment…
From 2008 onwards we decided:
Ever since, we have given our clients the opportunity to experience:
We have been profoundly improved professionally by these many experiences; allowing us to attain the relevant knowledge within the sector of hospitality.
Since 2008, we have broadened the range of our activities into the entertainment world with the aim of presenting a further global response to our clients: the Río Carnival, the symphonic music festival, the universal exposition…, and even events outside sporting world that we got to know through our experience in major international sporting events.
