The long awaited announcement by the IOC on 7th September is almost here and either Istanbul, Madrid or Tokyo will emerge victorious as the winning host city for the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Like the firing of a starter pistol, this announcement will mark the beginning of what will become a marathon event of preparations. The winning city will face numerous challenges and will be looking to develop strategies throughout the event delivery process.
It is with these challenges in mind that we are holding the Host Cities Summit (4-5 December 2013 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates). http://bit.ly/175MvCT
