Global Events

Enduring the competition. Beating the elite. Winning gold. The only thing more “impossible” at international sporting events is coordinating the games with an intercom solution that can make it all happen. We've made that happen for some of the most watched sporting competitions worldwide – from the World Cup to the Summer and Winter Olympic Games to Universiade. Stay connected to our blog for more updates on how we’ll be involved at upcoming multi-sport events!
