As the service provider to the event since last year, further to the signing of a five-year agreement with the Circuit Paul Ricard and the “Grand Prix de France - Le Castellet” Public Interest Group (the organiser of the event), GL events is in charge of setting up the grandstands laid out at various strategic points around the track.

Some 52,000 grandstand seats have been installed, including a 12,000-seat grandstand with covered spectator boxes on the upper level stretching 350 metres along the pit-lane straight (overlooking the start and finish line). It is the longest grandstand the Group has ever set up in France.

The teams from GL events Live Provence were mobilised for more than 50 days to prepare and set up this spectacular, high-profile event, which involved around fifteen different areas of trade expertise.

Following a public call for tender, the Profil agency won a 2-year contract to provide reception and hospitality-staffing services throughout the event for all the organiser's ("GIP" public interest group) and Renault Sport's hospitality areas. From Thursday to Sunday, more than a hundred stewards and hostesses will be working in the different hospitality spaces: reception area, VIP car park, handing out gifts, presidential lounge, orientation, La Ciotat casino, etc.

Once again, the GL events Group used its expertise to provide high-quality event services that reflect the status of this major event.
