GL events awarded a contract to provide installations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007

Following contributions at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the Six Nations Rugby Tournament and the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, GL events' expertise in the management of sports events is further illustrated by its participation in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 in the Caribbean: "ICC Cricket World Cup West Indies 2007".

ICC Cricket World Cup: a major sports event

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 will be held from March to April 2007 in the Caribbean. The opening ceremony will be held on 11 March 2007 in Jamaica with the Final on 28 April 2007 in Barbados. Sixteen teams will compete at this event (Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, West Indies, England, India, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Bangladesh, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Bermuda, and The Netherlands).

As the "Official Supplier of Overlay Services", GL events teams will progressively arrive on-site beginning in September 2006 and participate in assembling the installations from December 2006 to March 2007 followed by disassembly until June-July 2007.


Confirmation of the strength of GL events' global services division

This project should generate for GL events total sales of $25 million through traditional services (grandstands & temporary bleachers, temporary structures and indoor fixtures, furniture and equipment, electrical distribution and installations, sound and lighting systems, and conditioning, etc.) and global management services for the event infrastructures.

This contract that exceeds in size that of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games highlights GL events' presence as an important provider of solutions and services for major world events in 2006 and 2007: the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, the 2007 IRB Rugby World Cup in France, the 2007 Pan American Games in Brazil.
