London 2012 Olympic Games
The 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games are the largest sporting event ever to be staged in the United Kingdom. They offered a fantastic opportunity for the UK to demonstrate our expertise throughout the world and to build a robust and longlasting legacy for our economy, our businesses and our citizens.
BIS worked closely with our key partners to help ensure that we maximised these opportunities and reap the enormous economic and social benefits they represented, not just for London but for the country as a whole.
Business Link provided guidance on how the Games are being organised and explained how business could get involved in tendering for London 2012 contracts.
Through CompeteFor, businesses could find out about the latest Olympic procurement opportunities.
London 2012 produced a selection of tools to help businesses create an Action Plan and continue to run smoothly during the London 2012 Games.
Additionally they produced Preparing your business for the Games which provided useful advice and guidance on things to do before, during and after Games time, so that business could keep running during 2012 and make the most of the opportunities the following summer.
