Ensuring a healthy, happy and safe experience
FRANCE AND TAHITI
A truly unique sporting event
According to the organisers, the summer games in Paris in 2024 are expected to be extraordinary, attracting the highest number of spectators ever. Some 10 500 athletes will perform for 10 million ticket holders, 8 million of which are sold to the public.
It will host 329 sports events in and around Paris and in Bordeaux, Nantes, Lyon, Saint-Etienne, Nice, and Marseille. Sailing will be hosted from Marseille and the surf events on Tahiti in French Polynesia.
We are there for you and your team
France is a low-travel-risk location with excellent medical care. However, the scale of the event and influx of visitors will add multiple complexities to otherwise simple travel. When things go wrong in terms of health, travel, and safety, this will be exacerbated: language, cultural barriers and unforeseen logistics will be unexpectedly challenging.

Security and safety considerations
Extensive security measures are being put in place to shield the event from threats of terrorism, drone attacks and other risks, such as protests. 35 000 police, 2000-3000 private security agents, and new air defence technology will be in place to secure the events.
This includes the opening ceremony, which will take place along the Seine with 400 000 free tickets are available.
