In a celebration of sport, activity and wellbeing, Mapei will focus on systems and solutions for sport surfaces at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week. Colour and texture will take centre stage at the Mapei World London City Specification Centre, in Great Sutton Street, supported by product displays, demonstrations, sport-themed interactive challenges and workshops.
Mapei solutions span a vast array of sports, from adhesives for running tracks and sub-bases for synthetic grass, to decorative resin finishes for playing courts and full waterproofing and tiling systems for swimming pools and leisure centres. Exhibits across the three-day event will showcase these systems and, in true Mapei style, visitors can enjoy hands-on themed experiences and sporting challenges throughout the three-day festival.
Sport is part of Mapei’s DNA both locally and internationally, from historical links with cycling and football, to newer initiatives in sailing and basketball. From 1993 to 2002: Mapei sponsored a professional cycling team that reached the top of international rankings and achieved 654 victories. Mapei owns U.S. Sassuolo Calcio football club, men’s and women’s teams across all categories and has seen the men’s first team progress to Serie A. In 2022: Mapei became Global Sponsor of professional sailor and ocean navigator, Ambrogio Beccaria, who last year successfully finished second in the ‘Route du Rhom’ class 40 category. Mapei also supplied Red Bull with its products to create renovated, colourful, high performance basketball courts for the national stages of the 2022 Red Bull Half Court Tournament. Since 2008 Mapei has sponsored the UCI Road World Championships and this year is an Official Partner for the 2023 Cycling World Championships in Glasgow, the first special edition bringing together 13 cycling’s different disciplines.
Mapei UK’s own long and proud connection with sport includes sponsorship of professional golfer Adrian Otaegui, PGA Coach Chris Ryan, as well as Halesowen Town Football Club and Halesowen Cycling Club.
Mapei looks forward to welcoming visitors across the three-day festival – from Tuesday 23 – Thursday 25 May - at Mapei World London City, 6 Great Sutton Street, London EC1V 0BX
