Harry Spooner joins Showforce as Project Lead – Paris

Experienced event professional Harry Spooner has joined the Showforce team as Project Lead for Paris ahead of a busy summer of events in the French capital. Having spent six years in France delivering venue management for the Roland Garros tournament, Harry is a fluent French speaker and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of working in Paris to the team.

Specialising in leadership across operations, production and project management, Harry’s most recent role was as a Production Manager/ Site Manager for the hugely successful COP 28 in UAE.

Other career highlights include leadership roles at major events including Expo 2020, Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

Commenting on Harry’s appointment, Showforce’s Chief Executive Ian Spendlove said:

“With our French entity now fully established, a Parisian partner in place and a host of high-profile events already under our belts, having someone of Harry’s calibre onboard to head up projects and lead the team is essential. With his global games experience and working knowledge of delivering a major sporting event in Paris, he is uniquely equipped to ensure the successful delivery of the contracts we have in place we have for this summer and beyond. Establishing a permanent base in the country, with a fully operational office in mainland Europe and the Schengen Area is vital to our long term success in Europe.”
