This report, created by the Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Cisco, follows a webinar discussion held in July 2012 on the business, economic and social impact of the Olympic games on host cities and countries. The webinar brought together policymakers, practitioners and other experts in London, Beijing and Rio de Janeiro.
The report is a continuation of this discussion, featuring essays from other prominent experts as well as Economist Intelligence Unit articles based on interviews with executives in the aforementioned cities. It also highlights some of the most important comments from the July webinar, and features the results of a survey of 815 executives in the UK, China and Brazil conducted earlier in 2012. Our sincere thanks go to all contributors, interviewees and survey respondents for providing their time and insights.
