Client need

CANAL + was looking for a reliable partner to assist with their logistics and operational management during 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Our solution

SPARTNER has taken over the management of flight booking for the entire production and editorial team (commentators, reporters, consultants) from France to Brazil and back. We sourced suppliers of chauffeured vehicles and negotiated on behalf of CANAL +. Our project manager went on site during the entire event to assist CANAL + on the daily coordination of all vehicles fleet on the different Olympic venues adapting the schedule daily to match live results required to be covered by CANAL +.

We have been working with Spartner on our travel management since 2013 when Canal + acquired the TV rights for all Formula-1 GPs. For the Rio Games in 2016, we were faced with very complex logistical challenges and we naturally turned to Spartner. Their availability and knowledge during the preparation phase as well as their commitment and technical support during the event allowed us to work in top conditions and focus on delivering exceptional content. Thank you Spartner !
