Accor becomes an official Roland-Garros supplier
Accor is to become official supplier of Roland-Garros for the next three editions of the tournament (from 2015 to 2017).
As part of this partnership, the hotel group will have a reception area in the partners’ Village during the tournament, which will take place from May 24th to June 7th 2015. This will enable it to welcome many partners and investors from around the world. Roland-Garros will give significant visibility to Accorhotels.com and to the loyalty program Le Club Accorhotels during the French Open fortnight. Sofitel, the Group’s luxury hotel brand, will be responsible for the concierge service at the Village, at the Club des Loges as well as in the Players’ Lounge, the area reserved for the players.
Grégoire Champetier, former Accor’s Global Chief Marketing Officer, commented “Accor is once again implementing an ambitious sports partnership policy. Roland-Garros, which is one of the world’s most prestigious sports events and has remarkable international media coverage, was an obvious choice for the Group. Roland-Garros and Accor is a motivating alliance for both our customers all over the world and our employees.”
Jean Gachassin, President of The French Federation of Tennis: “We are delighted to welcome Accor among the Roland-Garros Official Suppliers. The Group’s international renown, its reputation for excellence and for looking forward while remaining true to its traditions, make it the perfect fit for our tournament”.
Furthermore, Roland-Garros and Accor are planning two exceptional days during the French Open fortnight, with the “Rêve Parisien” (Parisian Dream) offer. This includes one night at the Molitor Paris-MGallery Collection, a five-star urban resort just a stone’s throw from the Roland Garros stadium, with a gourmet dinner and a ticket for a category 1 seat at Philippe-Chatrier (Central Court) for the following day.
