Hosting major Olympic sports events is an opportunity for communities to bring international recognition and enable them to build a legacy that can produce benefits for years in the future. The vision to maximize this opportunity needs to begin as the bid is put together and must be part of the host city's presentation to the selection committee. It is also critical to have experience understanding and interpreting the specifications of a bid package in order to ensure the successful preparation of a compelling bid.
FaegreBD Consulting's extensive experience with amateur sports clients ranges over many aspects, including serving as federal lobbyists, preparing successful event bids, working for organizing committees and competing as athletes. We understand the demands host organizations face in winning the bid and in ongoing negotiations with the event's governing body. It is this experience that is critical to putting together a successful bid and ensuring that the goals of the host community remain in focus.
