A leading swimwear company has become the first to announce it will be based at Forman’s Fish Island Riviera during this summer’s Olympics.

Speedo has booked two adjoining suites at the entertainment venue, overlooking the Olympic Stadium, to cater for its corporate guests and swimming stars.

Adjacent to Forman’s Salmon Smokery, the hub of 30 individual 120sq meters suites can each be customised to client’s specifications, offering a fully branded environment, with car parking, drop off facilities, and a dedicated water taxi stop.

The glitz of Cannes is the inspiration behind the venue providing a beach club by day complete with cocktails, palm trees, and beach volleyball to keep guests entertained.

At night the riveria will be transformed into a party venue for guest to stay on and soak up the atmosphere.

A fleet of yachts will also be moored at Forman’s, which guests can hire by the day, offering the opportunity to experience the Games atmosphere from the waters of the River Lea.
