As an existing official IRONMAN Europe partner, signage specialist Doublet has been awarded a contract renewal to ‘continue optimising the visibility of IRONMAN and its partner brands across the continent’.
Long established and internationally renowned as a key partner for prestigious races including the Tour de France, the Norway Artic Race and the New York, London, Paris and Hamburg marathons, Doublet has again been chosen by IRONMAN to optimise brand and partner visibility at all European competitions.
