On the stage of the greatest cabaret the French capital has to offer, Christophe Ameeuw, CEO of EEM and Founder of the Longines Masters Series, unveiled the novelties in store for the third season of the international series and announced the start of the Longines Masters of Paris, which will kick off in less than 10 days!
The Longines Masters of Paris will run from 30 November to 3 December at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center – hall 5B – parallel to the Salon du Cheval de Paris. This European stage marks the launch of the Longines Masters Series Season III, which will continue in Hong Kong from February 9-11, 2018, and – for the first time – in New York, April 26 – 29, 2018.
“Hosting equestrian sports on the world's finest stages – Paris, Hong Kong and New York – to keep them in the international spotlight is our everyday motivation,” stated Christophe Ameeuw, CEO of EEM and Founder of the Longines Masters Series. That is precisely what happened on Tuesday, when nearly 200 guests and media in attendance at the LIDO de Paris were treated to a one-of-a-kind show by the greatest figures from the equestrian world.
Pioneer and visionary Christophe Ameeuw and his team at EEM delighted the audience with a premium setting to start off the prestigious series’ third season: LIDO de Paris. The Paris Cabaret is partner to the Longines Masters of Paris, and the director of its show “Paris Merveilles” is none other than Franco Dragone, an Artistic Partner to the Longines Masters on all three continents. These two natural partnerships of international reach gave an arena to their shared values: elegance, excellence and innovation.
Christophe Ameeuw and Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President of Longines and Head of International Marketing, Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Longines Masters Series over three continents, delivered the kick-off announcement of Season III of the Longines Masters Series.
Christophe Ameeuw and Juan-Carlos Capelli were able to showcase their dedication to equestrian sports and their partnership in developing the Longines Masters in Europe, Asia and America.“With the EEM teams, we want to show our ability to innovate by proposing some simple, effective and media – friendly concepts the Longines Speed Challenge, the Grand Slam Indoor or this new event the Riders Masters Cup,” explains Christophe Ameeuw.
