Wellpleased Events created the Press Centre which welcomed over 2,000 of the world’s press in Leeds, West Yorkshire for the 2014 Grand Depart, the first stage of the Tour de France. Held at Wellington Place owned by MEPC, Wellpleased worked with the ASO (the French organisers), Leeds City Council and Welcome to Yorkshire to create a huge park of temporary structures and marquees which would allow for press accreditation, and accreditation of every vehicle to form part of the Tour publicity caravan. Canteens, toilets, offices, conference rooms, press rooms, changing rooms and alteration rooms for all the kit, we planned built and organised it all. From power to security, lighting to floral decor, Wellpleased ensured everything was taken care of.
