Leveraging the Legacies of Sports Mega-Events
University of Birmingham, 30 November/1 December 2012
This event brings together experts to discuss how previous states have leveraged sports mega-events and what can future hosts learn from the past. To this end, the first day explores previous international experience of hosting sports mega-events with leading UK-based and international scholars from South Africa, India, the US, Canada and China presenting their ideas. The 2nd day of the workshop is given over to a focus on Brazil and their hosting of not one but two major sports ‘megas’.
