Paris 2024 – Launch of the international promotion campaign (Paris, February 8, 2017)


Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, will receive the Paris 2024 Olympic bid team (the co-chairs, Tony Estanguet, Bernard Lapasset and Guy Drut, IOC member) on February 8.

Together with Thierry Braillard, Minister of State for Sport, and Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, they will present Paris’s bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to the ambassadors of the countries represented in France.

This event forms part of the launch of the international campaign to promote Paris’s bid.

The Paris 2024 project is a priority for the government. France has a long tradition of hosting and organizing international sporting events, as well as recognized expertise. We want to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the world’s largest sporting event, which should be spectacular, festive, popular, and meaningful, and aim to demonstrate passion and commitment. This is the promise made by Paris 2024 and France.
