Working together since 2007, the IFSC and Entre-Prises have renewed their partnership.
ENTRE-PRISES (EP), world leader in climbing walls and IFSC Official Climbing Wall Supplier, has supported the development and promotion of Sport Climbing since the early days of the IFSC and has been a major IFSC partner since 2011. After a decade, the relationship now continues with the renewal of an exclusive deal as the Official Climbing Wall Supplier until TOKYO 2020.
Shared values, shared futures
EP contributes a robust worldwide presence to the IFSC, with over 30 years of experience in the climbing market and over 6,000 climbing walls built around the world. Throughout the years, the mission of their global, multicultural team remains to bring climbing and its core values to everyone through designing, manufacturing and ensuring the success of climbing walls. Central to the strong relationship between the IFSC and EP has been the sharing of these values: preserving the environment, fairness, accessibility, safety, health, education, equality and sport for all.
“We are really pleased to continue our partnership with Entre-Prises,” said IFSC President Marco Scolaris. “Their support since the very beginning has helped us carry our sport to great heights. Above all, we are pleased to share common values central to our mission. We look forward to the next stage of our journey together and what it means for Sport Climbing.”
A spirit for the Olympics
Also shared between the IFSC and EP is a fervour for Olympic values and principles, which bears new significance following the inclusion of Sport Climbing to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.
“We strongly believe that the climbing competitions development contribute to sharing sport climbing values”, said EP Marketing Manager Hélène Baudrand. “We are proud supporters of IFSC contribution to it.”
