For the fourth consecutive year Apogee will be an Official Supplier to the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.
Hugh Brasher, event director of the Virgin Money London Marathon, said: ‘The team at Apogee has provided a superb service to the event for the last three years. The planning and attention to detail has been excellent and the Apogee team went the ‘extra mile’ to make sure everything went according to plan. We look forward to working with the company again for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.’
One week prior to the race on Sunday 28 April, a vast network of print and document equipment will be preconfigured, delivered and installed at multiple locations across central London. Apogee staff across all operations including engineers, drivers and software experts will work together to provide and support a document infrastructure for the organisers and the world’s media to use around the clock.
The team will be on-site to ensure all technology runs smoothly throughout the build up week and the race weekend. This meticulous planning and proactive management by Apogee allows the event organisers to focus their attention on delivering the race, to the delight of more than 41,000 runners and millions of supporters.
‘We are delighted to be an official supplier to the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon once again,’ said Gary Downey, group marketing director at Apogee. ‘All the Apogee team really enjoys working with London Marathon Events Limited and it is such an exciting event to be part of. There is a great deal of planning, preparation and hard work that the team put in not just on race day but in the weeks beforehand and it is very gratifying that the quality of support we provide is recognised. For major events like this it is crucial that the organisers can rely upon the infrastructure we provide.’
