Working together now for over two years, TSE
Consulting and Edmonton, Canada are set to continue their relationship through to 2013.
Edmonton, a premier destination for sports events for over
thirty years, appointed TSE to develop a fifteen year sports event strategy
(2011-2026) that would enable the city to identify, attract and host major
international sports events that would drive results in meeting the various
socio-economic objectives of the city.
TSE is now assisting Edmonton in the implementation of
the strategy as well as advising them on how to activate upcoming events to
generate social benefits; such as the inaugural Edmonton International Athletics
Festival in June, the Women's Baseball World Cup in August and the 2015 FIFA
Women's World Cup.
Edmonton remains at the forefront of international
event host cities and will be at SportAccord in Quebec City in May where it
will be leveraging its Silver level sponsorship status and discussing event
partnership opportunities with International Sport Federation representatives.
Candice Stasynec, Executive Director of the City of
Edmonton, says: "TSE's assistance has been valuable in helping us set our
direction for the coming years and build the right relationships. Their
experience with working with cities around the world continually provides us
with new perspectives and ideas. We look forward to continuing our work
Dale Neuburger, TSE Director North America, says: "Edmonton
is a unique and experienced city with a strong reputation that ensures that each event is a success. The
focus is also ensuring that the success of the event goes beyond its
organisation and provides concrete benefits to the local
community. We are honoured to be continuing our work with Candice and her team
and look forward to building an even stronger Edmonton for the future."
