Viparis and RnK join forces to enhance hosting opportunities for innovative sporting events in Paris

Viparis, the leading holder of events, congresses and exhibitions in Europe, is proud to announce the signature of a strategic partnership with sporting events specialist RnK. This collaboration comes as another milestone in Viparis’ ambition to become a major player in the sporting event ecosystem.

By capitalising on the know-how of RnK, an expert in the design, project management and operational deployment of international sporting events, Viparis will be able to host more sporting events and effectively coordinate them.

Building on the skills acquired through hosting the world’s biggest sporting events and its original delivery model, Viparias wishes to see the legacy of this world-embracing event to last over time, and provide benefits to the Group and its teams.

This partnership once again illustrates Viparis’ desire to continue to expand its portfolio of major and international sporting events, thereby reinforcing its position as a major player in the organisation and management of these events. Established in one of the world’s sporting capitals, Viparis and RnK together pledge to offer Paris and the Île-de-France region innovative and unforgettable experiences through this strategic alliance.

“Signing this partnership with RnK marks a new step in Viparis’ ambition – already several years in the making – to host world-scale sporting events. The complementarities between Viparis and RnK constitute a genuine asset to bring more innovative sporting events to Paris and its region. This partnership is a further addition to the Viparis offering, and contributes to the legacy left by our hosting of the world’s largest sporting event.” Laurent Chiron – Executive Director of Viparis Développement

“Constantly in search of innovative hosting solutions for its events, RnK is very pleased to see this agreement reinforce the close ties that it has built with Viparis’ teams ever since the company was founded. Last July for example, we held the first major World Chase Tag event ever organised in France in pavilion 7.2 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre, during TwitchCon 2023. This successful premiere convinced the two parties that it was a worthwhile idea to aim even higher, together. This is the purpose of our partnership, and we are delighted to be a part of it.” Alexandre Ferracci – CEO of RnK
