Following a competitive tender process, Iventis has been selected as the venue planning solution for the European Championships Munich 2022. The event will be the biggest multi-sport event in Germany since the 1972 Summer Olympics and will be held between August 11-21, 2022.

The logistics of an event on the scale of the European Championships, which involves around 4,700 athletes from 50 nations and more than 135,000 spectators, require clear, concise and collaborative mapping. Iventis’ geospatial event planning tool will be used by the event organisers to bring together maps, CAD plans and other datasets so they can easily create and share their plans with key stakeholders.

A key area of focus for organisers will be to minimise disruption to the city by reusing existing infrastructure efficiently and central to this strategy is effective collaboration between the functional areas and multi-agency stakeholders involved in planning the event.

Lesleigh Klarmann, head of guest services at the European Championships Munich 2022, said: “We are happy to team up with such a renowned company as Iventis which will significantly support our team in their planning and delivery. The system will be used across several functional areas to develop plans and coordinate our efforts in the run up to the event.

Joe Cusdin, CEO and founder of Iventis, said: “We’re thrilled to have been selected by Munich 2022 to provide our collaborative planning software.

“The European Championships is a relatively new event with an innovative, sustainable model which we are delighted to be a part of. It is also a complex, multi-sport event which is exactly what Iventis was designed for. For the first time, it enables the whole team, its’ stakeholders and suppliers to plan every aspect of the event in a truly integrated way, moving away from plans being managed in many disparate formats.

“Munich 2022 joins the growing number of major events that have adopted Iventis to transform the planning process and we look forward to working with the team over the coming year.”

The European Championships Munich 2022 are in their second edition and feature nine Olympic sports including athletics, beach volleyball, canoe sprint, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, sport climbing, table tennis and triathlon.
