Enjoy the Paris 2024 immersive experience with Orange
Orange and Paris 2024 have installed a unique experience using the Overlap Reality technology created by the startup Sky Boy on the Eiffel Tower’s summer terrace.
This experience, presented to the IOC members on 15 May during the Evaluation Commission and during the Vivatech trade show, offers spectators an immersive experience that projects them into the future, all the way to 2024, during the Olympic Games in Paris.
To fully enjoy the experience, download the dedicated application “Immersion Paris 2024” onto your Smartphone or Tablet, and go to the summer terrace on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower.
You will immediately step into 2024 and witness for yourself, as if you were standing on the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower, how close the Olympic and Paralympic sites are to one another. While you are there, take a sneak peek at the celebration parade that will go from the Trocadero to La Villette, following the river Seine.

A collaborative, inter-company forward-looking design initiative
With the support of the Open Prospective Club, Orange has launched a unique collaborative inter-company initiative exploring future designs with the members of its club and the partners of the Paris 2024 bid.
During 3 days of "forward-looking design" workshops, 35 people representing some twenty different companies got together to imagine and design future services that 5G technology could offer audiences at the 2024 Paris Games for athletes, live spectators, tourists, TV audiences and French speakers around the world.
From these workshops, the teams produced some fifteen strong ideas/concepts, five of which were pitched and prototyped to Etienne Thobois (CEO of Paris 2024). Some of these ideas may turn into reality at events supporting the Paris 2024 bid.
Challenge I Make 4 My City – Sport for all
Since 2014, the Orange Foundation has been committed to the future of young people in hardship, by offering free training to more than 8,000 young people at its 61 Solidarity FabLabs in France and around the world. We continue to believe that digital technology is the best driver for equality of opportunity and integration into the job market.
On the strength of the success of the 2016 edition of the I MAKE 4 MY CITY challenges, which rewards Solidarity FabLabs projects, the Orange Foundation is continuing the challenge this year relying on the Orange-Paris 2024 partnership to provide innovative solutions and facilitate access to sports for all.
The theme of the 2017 challenge "Sport for All" is to come up with solutions (an object, a prototype, an application) that help people to do sports who are normally unable to for economic reasons, disability, etc., and specifically to:
- Encourage sports everywhere for everyone
- Promote gender diversity in sport
- Change society's view of disability
- Reduce inequality
The Challenge runs until July 6 at all partner Solidarity FabLabs. The prize-giving evening will he held on July 6, 2017 at the Orange Velodrome to reward the best projects, with three €15,000 prizes:
- The Orange Foundation jury prize
- The internet users' prize
- The Paris 2024 people's favorite prize
The Paris project: the Olympic Games and Paralympics as an example of sharing
The Paris goal for 2024 is to organize Olympics and Paralympics that will be spectacular, exciting, meaningful and based on sharing. In addition to exceptional sites that will make the city an ideal showcase for the competition, Paris has a culture of sharing and a connection with youth: it has built a collaborative economy and social innovation that is a model of progress, making it the capital of "sharing".
On February 3, the selection committee sent its third and final shortlist to the International Olympic Committee.
Five steps now separate Paris from the IOC's final verdict:
- May 14, 15, and 16: the IOC Evaluation Commission visits Paris.
- June 23 and 24: Paris 2024 event for Olympics Day in Paris.
- July 11: presentation of the Paris 2024 project to the IOC members in Lausanne.
- July 23: Tour de France final sprint, through the Grand Palais.
- September 13: final presentation in Lima before the election of the host city.
