Longines Masters of Paris to go ahead, say organisers
Statement issued today by the organisers of the Longines Masters of Paris:
Longines Masters of Paris
Solidarity with the victims of November 13th
Maintaining the 2015 Edition with enhanced security
Following the tragic events in Paris last Friday, the EEM Team immediately shared in the sorrow of the families of the victims and the national mourning declared by the President of France.
As organizer of international equestrian events, the EEM team was particularly moved by the demonstrations of solidarity and empathy expressed all over the world. The visual tributes in blue, white and red and the performing of the French national anthem “La Marseillaise” on stages across continents truly speak to unite us in the pursuit of freedom and liberty.
EEM confirms that the next edition of the Longines Masters of Paris, alongside the Salon du Cheval de Paris, will be held as expected from December 3rd to December 6th, in Hall 5B of the Parc des Expositions in Villepinte.
More than ever before, this edition will be a celebration, bringing to life the universal values so well represented by our sport: Respect, Courage, and Tolerance.
As organizers, EEM and its partner the Salon du Cheval are putting in place increased security measures (bag checks, entry controls and security personnel) and working with official law enforcement authorities to optimize security at the event.
The EEM team remains at your disposal to answer all of your questions and concerns.
