Unique Venues of London (UVL), the leading consortium of events venues in the capital, has teamed up with London & Partners and the International Special Event Society (ISES) to run a panel debate on the Olympic Games legacy.
Entitled Beyond 2012: London’s Events Legacy, the workshop will feature a range of topics including the future of the Olympic Park, the major event opportunities for London and future prospects for the city as a whole post 2012.
Taking place at BFI IMAX on Monday 19 September, the event will consist of a panel of industry and Olympic Games experts including Clive Little, Director of Events and Programming at the Olympic Park Legacy Company, Iain Edmondson, Head of Major Events at London & Partners, and Dan Ritterband, Director of Marketing and 2012 communications for the Greater London Authority. The event will be moderated by Robert Wright, Managing Director of Davies Tanner.
Moya Maxwell, Head of Commercial Programming at the Royal Opera House and Acting Chairman of UVL comments: “With 73 venues we feel it is important, as an organisation, to facilitate workshops and events which resonate with our members. As such, Beyond 2012 allows us to look at opportunities for the present and future for events spaces in the capital and the city as a whole. We look forward to assisting London & Partners and ISES with the event and hope it leads to some interesting insights”.
Zanine Adams, Head of Event Solutions and UK Sales, London & Partners adds: “London is already a world leading events and business destination and the Games in 2012 have not only drawn a spotlight on the capital, but also promise to deliver an exciting legacy which will benefit London and the events industry for years to come. As the official promotional agency and convention bureau for the capital, London & Partners are working with the industry to ensure that we can together make the most of this legacy opportunity as we promote London as the most exciting, dynamic and versatile events destination in the world”.
Jonathan Byrne, President of ISES and Chief Operating Officer at the Royal Aeronautical Society also adds: “It is important for ISES to work together with other key event industry organisations like UVL and London & Partners to demonstrate how successful partnerships like this can deliver real value to both our membership and the wider industry”.
