Mission

Cities and countries around the world hosting large international events must provide a substantial number of specific facilities, infrastructure and technical installations to meet the increasing requirements of athletes, the media, sponsors and other stakeholders so as to guarantee a safe and smooth operation of their events. These facilities and infrastructure are often unique with respect to size, quantity and location, and quite often do not fit into an established and sustainable urban development program. Organizers are increasingly faced with the challenge of finding appropriate yet cost-effective solutions and developing a true legacy plan for their large-scale events.

 

Temporary infrastructure (overlays) is used to adapt new facilities, upgrade or remodel existing facilities, or even as temporary sports facilities. Temporary infrastructure has increasingly become an important and indispensable factor for organizers of large events. 

 

Therefore, the members of AGES have embarked on a mission to promote and unify the standards of their business to facilitate the needs of future international event organizers.

 

In this respect, AGES has published a comprehensive Practice Guide for the Planning, Procurement and Delivery of Temporary Infrastructure for Major Events, comprising Part I General Information and Part II Technical Information. These Guides explain the business of our members and are addressed to Organizers, Building Authorities, Governmental Organisations and other stakeholders involved in event infrastructure. The volumes are available in the AGES web shop.

 

Similarly, AGES published the Sustainability Guide to encourage event suppliers to develop a consistent sustainability strategy and improve their performance. The Guide has a narrative part with chapters about getting ready and how to implement a sustainability management system and a technical part with annexes providing complementary information, checklists, methodologies and other information to assist during the process. The Guide is available free of charge through the AGES web shop.
