SportsPro Destinations - The Annual Report 2015  
BIDDING, HOSTING, VENUES, LEGACY

The Destinations Annual Report is an essential business tool for cities, regions or venues looking to develop inward economic investment or socio-political or cultural benefits through sporting events. Aimed at both potential hosts and rights holders looking to place events, the Destinations Annual Report focuses on bidding and hosting, infrastructure and event legacy.

That sport can be a major economic driver for a city, region or country is a well-established concept. The past decade has seen examples across the world, ranging from Fifa World Cups in Germany and South Africa; Olympic Games in Vancouver and London; spectacular additions to the Formula One calendar in Abu Dhabi and Singapore; and a multitude of other world championships and mass participation events.

The economic impact of a major event cannot be ignored. For a venue, it can be a crucial element of a wider investment strategy; for an event rights holder, the relationship with the host is an increasingly dynamic and complex one.

SportsPro’s annual Destinations Report has been designed specifically to provide mission critical information and insight for both hosts and rights-holders.

Partners of the report include: Abu Dhabi | Auckland | Denmark | London | Manchester

  Sustainable Mega-Events in Developing Countries  
Experiences and Insights from Host Cities in South Africa, India and Brazil | www.kas.de
How can mega-events, such as the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup™ in South Africa, the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India as well as the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, be used as catalysts for sustainable urban development? Based on three country case studies the authors analyze challenges and opportunities that come with such events. The aim of the manual is to assist future host cities, particularly in a developing country context, and promote the hosting of such events in an environmentally as well as economically and socially sustainable manner.
