"Through this partnership with Panasonic [we can] grow the Paralympic movement to new levels as we build towards the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games."

Panasonic said it would support its IPC alliance with mutli-platform marketing, on-site presence and other global activations.

Through this partnership with Panasonic I am confident we can consolidate this position and grow the Paralympic movement to new levels as we build towards the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games."

Other global marketing partners include Atos, Ottobock Samsung and Visa; international partners include Allianz and BP.
