Tarkett to support Annecy in its quest for the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics
As world wide leader in sports surfaces, Tarkett and its Tarkett Sports Division have been an official partner of the French Olympic Committee (CNOSF) since 2007. We are now also supporting Annecy 2018 in its bid for the Winter Games. Selected as an official candidate city in June 2010, Annecy is competing alongside Munich (Germany) and Pyeongchang (South Korea). The Annecy project is founded on 4 major pillars: the principles of sustainability, a universal accessibility, allowing the largest number of people to attend (and in particular persons with a handicap), the mobilization of younger audiences and the full integration of new technologies. The final decision will be taken at the 122th session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Durban (South Africa) on June 6, 2011. Sharing the Olympic spirit, Tarkett is extending all its know how and expertise to Annecy in it’s quest for the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
