The budgets for the world’s top 50 major sporting events between 2016 and 2025 are estimated to total £230 billion. With 30% of procurement made internationally, this creates a potential export market of nearly £70 billion for UK companies, including contract opportunities for the Olympics and FIFA World Cup.

As a part of IFB2016, UKTI is hosting a major conference for companies wishing to learn how they can take advantage of these opportunities.

Whether you are a company with experience of working on sports events, or new to the industry, attendees will gain an in depth understanding of where their product fits into this market and where the next global opportunities exist, including:

– 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia
– 2019 Pan American Games in Peru
– 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo
– 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Given the complexity of these events, the organisers are looking for companies that specialise in a wide range of sectors including;

– Venue design and fit out
– Security and transport
– Personnel and volunteer management
– Catering and corporate hospitality
– Facilities management
– New technology solutions
