EBU operation in Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games was very successful also thanks to Mara and all the MX Sports colleagues who always kept an excellent level of services and personal attention to all our needs during our stay in Rio. Thank you for this. I can recommend your services to anyone, especially for your flexibility to help with any special needs and your positive and polite approach at any time.

"Mara Xenou is a very professional and dedicated person that helped us a lot during preparations of WC 2014 in Brazil.
We were highly satisfied with the results and can truly recommend MX Sports."

"Mara has evolved MX Sports into a highly professional operation over the years. She has been instrumental in sourcing accommodation and workspace not only for us but for a host of other broadcasters at pretty much every major sporting event I have been involved in over the past decade. Her attention to detail and hands on approach to solving her clients' accommodation issues in places where everything is usually either booked up well ahead of time or hideously expensive is second to none. I know she makes it look easy, but believe me there's a lot of background work and research that goes into this and MX Sports is, in my opinion one of the leading lights in this niche market.
I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

“I along with my colleagues from ESPN Brazil worked with Mara in South Africa for our coverage of the World Cup of Soccer 2010. Mara worked diligently with her numerous contacts to provide housing and production location options to us. We worked together on choosing locations during December of 2009. And then again on coverage of the matches May/June of 2010. Mara is a great person to work with. She is pleasant, resourceful and has many connections globally. It was a great experience. My colleagues at ESPN Brazil told me that they have worked with Mara on numerous events around the world and always had a great experience.”

Intelsat, USA

“I was referred to Mara and her company MX Sports through a mutual customer during the early phases of our planning for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. As those who were involved in this sporting spectacular can attest, the behind the scenes logistics; planning for housing, transport and ancillary services, posed challenges far greater then the planning for the broadcast requirements.
From our first contact with MX Sports and all the way through the final farewells in mid-July, the whole MX Sports team were the consummate professionals. The housing they arranged on our behalf met all expectations; was secure, well kept and in move-in condition upon our arrivals. MX Sports team met our staff at the airport over the course of the event, helped resolve logistics issues small and large and most importantly, treated our group more like friends or family then
The highest recommendation I can provide for Mara Xenou and the team at MX Sports ... We look forward to working with them in the future as we prepare for the next round of major events!”
