Our sponsors
SYSTRA has been our primary partner for the last seven years. It is a counselling and engineering firm and a world leader in public transportation networks and makes this event possible thanks to its continuous support.
Pierre Verzat, Chairman, SYSTRA's management board:

"One can both serve the planet and like fencing fights. At SYSTRA, there is no contradiction between our calling to imagine solutions for tomorrow's public transportation systems and our commitment to an age-old sport, fencing. On the contrary, we believe liveliness, technique and the urge to be the best making up the essence of this noble sport are shared features with outstanding engineering which has been our trademark for 60 years now. In our work too, one must be quick, protect against one's competitors, win throughout several rounds from preliminary drafts to deployment, know when to step forward and when to step backward, in order to win for a team, for a city, for a country. That's why without a moment's hesitation, we renewed our support to this challenge, whose international reach reminds of SYSTRA's road map: to export french excellence everywhere in the world. And if we are able to trigger your passions, it would be win-win for us and for you. After all, SYSTRA is about to hire 3000 people all over the world! En garde!"
