2020 Summer Olympics: Istanbul, Tokyo or Madrid?

Thursday, August 29, 2013

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

Through panel discussions, keynote speeches, interactive workshops and case studies, our expert speakers will divulge their insights on best practices for host cities looking to launch and run major events.

33 international speakers are confirmed to present this year from sporting and major events industries. Senior representatives from companies include:
