Huddersfield’s Leach has been appointed as the official venue dressing sponsor for the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup and 2020 ECA Canoe Slalom European Championships.

The event dressing will include the main entrance and buildings; wayfinding around the events; course side branding; podium backdrop; and the “kiss and cry” area on the finish line.

“With the 2019 Canoe Slalom World Cup and 2020 European Championships on the horizon, it’s an exciting time for the organisation,” said Tom Foster, Head of Projects at Leach.

“There’s a shared passion for innovation across our two companies and we’re thrilled to be able to transform the look and feel of the host venue and improve the spectator experience.”

Both competitions are being held at London 2012 Games venue, Lee Valley White Water Centre.

"With just over five months to the start of the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup I am delighted that we have appointed Leach as our official venue dressing sponsor,” added Gareth May, Business Development Manager at British Canoeing.

“Leach has a world class reputation, expertise and passion demonstrated in the museum and retail sectors, and I am confident that their innovative display solutions will showcase and elevate our international events to a whole new level.”
