Samsung has announced in October 2014 the extension of its partnership agreement with the International Paralympic Committee beyond the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. For the next six years of this agreement, Samsung, who has sponsored the IPC since 2006, will remain as one of the IPC's Official Worldwide Paralympic Partners and will expand after 2016 its category of sponsorship to the "Wireless Communications Equipment and Computing Equipment," including smartphones, tablets, laptops, personal computers and other computing equipment, and desktop printers.
This partnership represents an important extension of the involvement of Samsung with the Olympic Games. Through this partnership, Samsung will support the IPC's efforts to communicate the inspiration and excitement of Paralympic sport to a wider audience around the world.
