Why are we sponsoring the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games?

  • To showcase our hospitality on the world’s biggest stage: We’ll use our global hospitality experience to provide our guests, athletes, Olympic and Paralympic Games officials, and fans with an unforgettable experience during London 2012.
  • To give our people a once in a lifetime opportunity: Over the next few years we will have exciting opportunities for some of our best people to work as part of the London 2012 team.
  • To drive revenue to our hotels: We’re first choice for whenever the London 2012 organisers need a hotel from now until the Games.

What is our role?

  • We will help design and run the Athletes’ Village.
  • We’ll be hosting the Olympic Torch Relay team, with opportunities for a lucky few to run a leg with the torch itself!
  • We have Olympic and Paralympic Games tickets for each day of the Games that we’ll use to reward our highest performing people.
  • We’ll be hosting Olympic and Paralympic Games officials, staff and athletes from now until the Games, in hotels across all our brands.
  • Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express in the UK will use the iconic London 2012 logo in our hotels, in our advertising, and even on ourselves.
  • For more information, please visit the London 2012 Teamspace on Merlin, email the team at or visit the official site of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
