The festive reception brought together Logos’ founders, current team, clients, partners and EU stakeholders proved the perfect occasion to highlight our thriving company’s development down the years. Logos owes its exponential growth to a combination of its clients’ trust and our team’s expertise.
Earn Trust. Make Change.
Logos is proud to have contributed to the success of the first edition of the IRU World Congress 2018 in Muscat, Oman. Logos supported IRU in developing the programme of the conference as well as organising a ministerial dialogue between representatives from the public and private sectors.
During the closing plenary, Umberto de Pretto, IRU Secretary General, congratulated the team for providing the richest programme the organisation ever showcased. Journalists John Defterios (CNN) and Jorn Madslien (former BBC) also stated that the Congress had the richest programme they had ever seen in any event.
The congress saw the participation of leading representatives from the public and private sectors. Among them, one can list José Manuel Barroso, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International and former European Commission President, Joachim Drees, CEO of MAN, Pierre Lahutte, CEO of IVEC, E. Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Al Futaisi, Minister of Transport and Communications, Oman, John Defterios, journalist, CNN, and many others (see full list of speakers’ lineup here).
Our contribution was highly valued by congress participants, the IRU and its executive team. We have high hopes to win a new mandate to support the organisation of the next edition in 2020.
In a nutshell:
Opening plenary was attended by the royal family and was aired live on national Omani television. For more information, please contact Ludovic Cartigny (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In August 2018, bikers from all over the world started joining the world wide campaign “We, The Riders“ launched by one of Logos’ oldest clients – the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM). The campaign, launched at the Austrian round of MotoGP, is a new initiative by responsible motorcyclists who share the joy of riding motorcycles and are adamant about the need for safer roads.
On 10 October 2018 the campaign was officially launched in Brussels. At FIM‘s Annual Policy Debate ‘Riders & Drivers: Fighting Invisibility Together’, organised with the support of the Logos Public Affairs team, policy makers, industry representatives and members of the motorcycling community were presented with FIM’s vision for roads built and planned with all users in mind. The event was co-hosted by MEP Wim van de Camp, EPP Coordinator of TRAN Committee and MEP Karima Delli, TRAN Committee Chair.
The focus of the “We The Riders” campaign is “visibility” – i.e. the need for riders not only to be seen in traffic but also to be borne in mind by decision makers as motorcyclists are often overlooked. The FIM stands by the riders who take their responsibility and, together, we are all demanding that everyone else takes theirs. Partners of the campaign include Dorna, the Red Bull Ring circuit, ACEM, and many MotoGP stars.
The campaign was also endorsed by the European Commissioner for Transport Mrs Violeta Bulc and Mr Jean Todt, President of the FIA and UN Special Ambassador for Road Safety. This campaign is a contribution by the FIM to the United Nations Decade of Action.
