Mayor of Turin: preparation for the NITTO ATP Finals continues with undiminished vigour
The London-based AWE International Group has been awarded the definition of the five-year masterplan for the NITTO ATP Finals in Turin.
The evaluation process saw 10 international groups of companies competing against each other in the bid, but only one reached the highest technical/qualitative-economic score and was appointed by the Technical Committee.
Chiara Appendino, Mayor of Turin, states: “The preparation for the NITTO ATP Finals continues with undiminished vigour, despite the many challenges we are currently facing because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
This event represents a clear message of the intention of the city and the Italian tennis movement to look forward with hope and join forces to overcome this difficult time in history and focus on what’s to come. This sentiment is shared by all the actors involved in the project, who agree on the importance of regaining perspective and have something positive to look forward to in the near future.
WE International Group’s masterplan follows this spirit, for it is an international group of companies with a strong attachment to Turin. Romy Gai, Chairman of AWE International Group, expresses his emotion: “I am proud to be part of this extraordinary event. This pride and emotion are shared by our Turin office and our teammates in this joint venture: Arriva, Camerana&Partners, KPMG, Nielsen Sports, the Politecnico di Torino. An international group that every day works with passion all over the world. Now, it’s time to come back to our city and play our part in creating the most engaging event tennis has ever seen: a celebration of tennis in a city, Turin, open to the world.” An ambitious project that has the clear objective to leave a mark on both the territory and tennis worldwide, as stated by Benedetto Camerana, Principal of Camerana&Partners: “As was the case with the Olympic Games in 2006, we want to contribute to leaving an architectural and spiritual mark on this city, something that stands the test of time and makes of Turin one of the international capitals of tennis.”
