TSE, in partnership with the International University Sport Federation (FISU) and GL Events, is pleased to announce the date and theme for the second edition of "City Events - where cities meet sport". The conference will be held on November 16-18, 2011, in Lausanne, Switzerland .
The title of the conference this year is "Three dimensions of successful event hosting". The 2011 programme will focus on concepts and cases drawn from recent successful event hosting. Speakers from host cities, international federation and private event owners will share their practical experiences in three separate, but interrelated modules: economic impact - how to maximise revenues, social impact - how to maximise the impact on the well being of citizens, and promotional impact - how to maximise the impact on national and international perception.
City Events is the first international conference that brings together cities interested in hosting international sports events as well as international and continental sports organisations looking for ambitious hosts for their events. In addition, event suppliers and private event owners are able to make valuable connections.
Greg Curchod, Director at TSE Consulting, states: "The first edition of City Events was a success and we look forward to an even better event this year in Lausanne. Lausanne, as the Olympic Capital and home to so many international federations is the perfect place for such a conference. City Events is both a networking tool, allowing better relationships between sports organisations and cities in order to generate more commercial opportunities for both sides, and a learning tool with interesting speakers and a innovative programme. We look forward to welcoming cities from around the world to Lausanne in November."
