Accor is the world's largest hotel and most dynamic tourism group, with more than 3,700 hotels and resorts in over 90 countries. Accor's popular hotel brands cater to every market segment and include Sofitel, Novotel, Mercure, All Seasons, Coralia, Ibis and Motel Formule 1.
For many years Accor has been the Official Hotel Partner of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) and Australian Olympic Team. The sponsorship is the pinnacle of Accor's extensive involvement in sport in Australia and follows the group’ pivotal role in the success of the Sydney 2000 Games as the largest provider of accommodation, as well as being heavily involved in venue management and catering for a number of events.
In the lead-up to the Olympic Games in Athens and Beijing, Accor provided accommodation for Australia’s athletes and it will do so again for the 2012 Games in London.
In addition to Accor providing accommodation for athletes as they prepare for the Olympics, the AOC has the advantage of utilising Accor’s complementary businesses including the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Blue Line Cruises and the Summit Restaurant to host functions.
Accor is also a sponsor of the French Olympic Team.
The Olympics epitomise the values upheld throughout Accor including team spirit, pride, respect for others, enthusiasm, world-class standards, environmental protection and a commitment to being the best.
