Sportcarriere is assisting On Location in the recruitment of a Continental Director, NOC & NPC Relations – Olympics & Paralympics for the African continent.

On Location is a global leader in premium experiential hospitality, offering ticketing, curated guest experiences, live event production and travel management across sports, entertainment, fashion, and culture. On Location provides unrivaled access for corporate clients and fans looking for official, immersive experiences at marquee events, including the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Super Bowl, NCAA Final Four, New York Fashion Week and more.
An official partner and/or service provider to over 150 iconic rights holders, such as the IOC (Paris 2024, Milano Cortina 2026, LA 2028), NFL, NCAA, UFC and PGA of America, and numerous musical artists and festivals, the company also owns and operates several of its own unique experiences. On Location is a subsidiary of Endeavor, a global entertainment, sports, and content company.
Last summer, On Location and the International Olympic Committee have signed an historic long-term agreement that includes all editions of the Olympic and Paralympic Games until 2028.
On Location, has then become the exclusive provider for the official hospitality products of the Games at Paris 2024, Milano Cortina 2026 and Los Angeles 2028.
Designed in collaboration with the Organizing Committee of each Host City, the Olympic and Paralympic hospitality products will provide a one-of-a-kind window into these world-renowned locations.

After Paris 2024, this important remit spans multiple Games in order to apply valuable learnings, insights, and efficiencies across all projects. It would therefore be possible to switch after Paris to Milan Cortina 2026 and/or Los Angeles 2028.
