If you think Alltech is celebrating today, just wait until a year from now. There are only 365 days left until the start of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian GamesTM 2014 in Normandy.
Alltech held a celebration at its headquarters in Nicholasville, Ky., last week, and that’s just the beginning of the excitement that will build until the Games open on Aug. 23, 2014. Offices and employees around the country and throughout the world all held their own celebrations to mark the occasion. Alltech became the first ever title sponsor of the 2010 Games, which was held in Lexington, Ky.
“The Games in Normandy hold a special significance for Alltech, touching every aspect of our business, motivating employee engagement, supporting our philanthropic and educational endeavours and establishing solid ties in the Normandy region for years to come,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “We are proud and delighted to be a part of this one-world event for the second time, having become the event’s first title sponsor through the last edition of the Games in Kentucky in 2010.”
The celebration doesn’t stop today. Alltech’s newest office in Caen will grow to include more than 100 employees from around the world over the next year to support its sponsorship efforts. Alltech offices around the world will celebrate today and continue to count down to the Games’ opening all through the next year. Momentum will build over the next 365 days as the Games draw closer.
