Testimonials

"We decided on a new engagement route with the supply chain, so it was a great opportunity to introduce our partnership model at their annual event 2019. It was the right timing and a perfect platform, having all mayor suppliers of temporary infrastructure together in a room. But also later on, our team appreciated the possibility to provide updates and generate interest on specific challenges we had."

Ian Reid, Chief Executive, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

"I believe for the first time in a World Expo, Expo 2020 Dubai had purposely built an overlay department to address the challenges of temporary infrastructure. The early exchanges with AGES were very helpful at the start of our planning activities to better understand the capabilities and capacities of the event builders industry that serve the region. We participated in a couple of their annual events to explain our requirements and enable the industry to understand our scope and challenges."

David Higgins, Senior Vice President - Overlay, Expo 2020 Dubai

"Over the past few years (2016 – 2018), AGES has made a significant contribution towards the successful delivery of the Tokyo 2020 Games. The opportunity of counting on their contribution has helped Tokyo 2020 to better understand the complexity involved in the delivery of temporary infrastructure for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

AGES Annual meetings (we participated twice) were a great opportunity for event operators to understand the Tokyo 2020 Games and strengthen their cooperation with us. The meetings provided us with access to the necessary network of experienced suppliers and useful information."

 

Masamitsu Isaka, Senior Director of Procurement, Tokyo Organising Committee of Olympic and Paralympic Games

"I got to know AGES when I was invited to speak at their Annual Event. I was positively surprised to see the wide range of works categories represented and to experience the entrepreneurial spirit of this industry. At UEFA, we are used to deal with temporary infrastructure at our events, still we are pleased to have AGES as the representing body of this increasingly important business. Now, it is easier for us to communicate and address our requirements." 
Christian Hirschmüller, Head of Technical Services & Overlay, UEFA Events SA

 

“AGES represents a diverse global supplier network with extensive experience in delivering high quality temporary infrastructure for the world’s great sporting events. As we look towards a more sustainable future, AGES is perfectly placed to ensure Event Owners and Local Organizing Committees understand the industry and it's role in delivering events, and the exciting potential with emerging technologies and products”.

 

John Baker, Toronto 2015 Pan Am & ParaPan Am Games

«The utilization of Temporary Infrastructure continues to play an increasing role in the staging of major events worldwide. Therefore the launch of AGES is perfectly timed to ensure that industry standards and performance meet this growing demand and provide the right level of governance and assurance to Event Organizers and Regulatory Authorities.»
