The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has announced a partnership with specialist digital transformation consultancy company, PTI Digital, making them the Games’ official technology service provider.
The deal will see PTI assist the organisers by providing their technology services, with the event being broadcast globally from 28 July from Birmingham and the West Midlands.
PTI chief executive, Mike Bohndiek, said: “The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games is the largest event ever to be held in the West Midlands and one of the biggest events staged in the United Kingdom since Glasgow 2014 and London 2012 and the past decade has seen unparalleled growth in the technological demands of staging major events.”
“We are really delighted to be able to bring our experience to ensure we help Birmingham 2022 set a new benchmark for major events,” he said.
Head of venue technology, Birmingham 2022, Laurence Smith, said it has been a pleasure working with PTI digital.
“Their sports and venue specific expertise, combined with major event delivery knowledge as well as their exceptional partnership approach, have proved a great asset to my team, and this will continue through Games-time,” Smith said.
“We are also pleased that PTI is contributing to our legacy and sustainability strategy by redeveloping key Games infrastructure to enhance network capability at other sports venues, thereby providing a lasting benefit to sport in the UK,” he said.
Additionally, PTI joining the event as a partner adds to their global partnership portfolio, which includes Premiership Rugby, Formula one, ICC cricket tournaments and the Ryder Cup.
