By supporting this event, the leading aerospace company highlights its global commitment to the rehabilitation of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both active and veteran.
Düsseldorf, 19.04.2023, Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company and a leading manufacturer of commercial aircraft as well as systems in the defence, aerospace and security sector, will be the Presenting Partner for the INVICTUS GAMES DÜSSELDORF 2023. The partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, which has been in place since 2018, underlines Boeing’s global commitment to the rehabilitation of physically and mentally wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans.
‘We are honoured to be the Presenting Partner for the Invictus Games in Düsseldorf,’ says Michael Haidinger, the President of Boeing Germany. ‘We know how important it is to support servicemen and women, and with this year’s Games, we want to make our contribution to their rehabilitation and inclusion in society. I have seldom seen a competition that is as exciting, emotional and inspiring as the Invictus Games. We are delighted to be part of these extremely important Games again this year.’
