“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.”

Accor will also leverage its operational experience in major sporting events by providing an innovative digital hotel booking platform for Paris 2024.

The platform, provided by ResaEvents, a subsidiary of the Accor group, will cover the whole French hotel market around Olympic and Paralympic venues to make it easier to book hotel rooms.
