The 2023 summer season has been successfully completed by Eurotech Sports & Events. The company was already specialized in the organization and logistics surrounding cyclocross and cycling events. In the past summer season, new markets were also penetrated, such as equestrian sports, marathons, the European Gravel Championship and mountain bike races.
The season began on April 16 with the 57th edition of the Amstel Gold Race in the Limburg hills. During this sporting event, Eurotech Sports & Events was present with the VIP trailer with Full-HD LED screen. This 62m2 multifunctional trailer was designed with the aim of offering more added value to the customer. Because the VIP trailer can serve as a jury, studio and merchandise trailer, its use results in less CO2 emissions, fewer movements, better service and reduced travel and accommodation costs. The Full-HD LED screen gives more meaning to sponsorship than a normal canvas. On the screen, logos can be dynamically visualized through animation. In addition, a timer or live stream can be displayed on the LED screen.
Following this, Eurotech Sports & Events was in Greece with the new LED-arch jury trailer and podium trailer. From May 2 to 6, the 2023 International Tour of Hellas took place there. There were frequent comments that our LED-arch was too big in some cases. In advance, we had made a plan for this that we could apply in the third stage. With a road only 5 meters wide, we drove it in in a longitudinal direction and folded the LED-arch 180 degrees behind the car which gave us enormous interest on this day.
Afterwards Eurotech Sports & Events had a busy program with several cycling races of the Lotto Cycling Cup. In addition, we were active in the Tour de Suisse which was held from June 11 to 18, 2023. The Tour of Switzerland was mainly in the media because the 26-year-old Swiss cyclist Gino Mäder fell heavily during the fifth stage and passed away due to the accident. Eurotech Sports & Events paid tribute to Gino Mäder during the next stage by projecting “We ride for you Gino” on the LED screen.
We were also present at the ZLM Tour, Baloise Belgium Tour, German Road Championships and the Tour de Berlin Feminin. In addition to these successful cycling tours, Eurotech Sports & Events was also at the Bobstart Amsterdam event. During this unique summer event, an international push competition for the sports bobsleigh and skeleton took place on the Westerdoksplein in Amsterdam. Eurotech Sports & Events was present with the VIP trailer with LED screen.
From July 23 to 30, Eurotech Sports & Events had a big and beautiful assignment: the Tour de France Femmes 2023. We were able to show our trailer at the highest sports level and everything worked properly. Eurotech Sports & Events is proud of all the professionals who worked on the Eurotech LED-arch trailer and what has been achieved in 3 years. We have successfully completed our first A.S.O. assignment.
After the Tour de France Femmes, Eurotech Sports & Events was active at the Lotto Cycling Cup, Memorial Jef Scherens in the beautiful city of Leuven. We were also at Jumping Zaerum in Sevenum where we were present for the first time in our history with our new LED-arch jury and studio trailer with an 8x4m big screen for live images. The subsequent Tour Deutschland was a difficult tour for us. This was another moment to take a critical look at ourselves. However, the public did not notice anything of the technical defects and were able to enjoy a beautiful tour. At the last race of the Lotto Cycling Cup, the Championship of Flanders, we were again allowed to provide the finish with the accompanying podium.
On October 1, the Generali Cologne Marathon was scheduled. A magnificent event with a total of 22,000 runners at the start. Eurotech Sports & Events hooked up two Expandable trailers, the LED-arch trailer and VIP trailer. Our podium trailer was also present and was equipped with the LED screen from Vidiled. Shortly after, we were active at another marathon, the ASML Marathon Eindhoven. The event was well organized by the staff of Golazo. We are grateful that we could be there with our LED-arch jury trailer. Simultaneously with the marathons, Eurotech Sports & Events was also present at the European Gravel Championship, the mountain bike festival Roc d’Azur and the first Exact cyclocross.
In short, a busy summer season from which we can look back positively. We are currently preparing for the cyclocross races that will take place in the winter. Moreover, we are looking forward to the next summer season full of new and beautiful challenges.
