Large events

Our strengths

Proven experience in the biggest international events

The Olympic Games, the World Cup, the Pope’s visit to Geneva… in 25 years, the host and organizing regions have entrusted us with more than 30 large events in 15 countries.

Multiple skills and field experience

Our experts combine perfect mastery of transport engineering and operational knowledge of how big events work.

Full support for your event

From strategy to operations, our teams of specialized engineers will support you from A to Z to ensure the full success of any event.

The certainty of minimizing operational risks

Our job is to minimize the risk of failure by relying on in-depth mobility studies, network performance simulations and robust event management.

Temporary mobility: effectiveness and reliability

The design of mobility systems for big events is at the heart of Citec’s activity. Sports competitions, shows, parties… large events are situations that place exceptional demands on territories and infrastructures. These projects of extreme complexity and great uncertainty are the subject of considerable challenges that affect not only the functioning of the event itself, but also the image of the host territory, its capacity to welcome the public, as well as the resilience and reliability of its management systems. Our experts support the territories, the organizers as well as the owners of the event, from the application to the operational management during the event. By combining a perfect mastery of transport engineering and a proven knowledge of the operation of large events and their specific needs, Citec knows how to design effective and robust solutions, ensuring that the event is carried out in the best conditions.
