Presented by Emirates, Host Cities is a two day summit where industry leaders will cover everything from the Olympics to major international sporting events, expos and festivals, identifying how emerging nations can both successfully bid for as well as create their own, homegrown large scale events that leave a positive legacy and maximise social and economic impact.

Through panel discussions, keynote speeches, interactive workshops and case studies, our expert speakers will divulge their insights on best practices for host cities looking to launch their own major events, what rights holders are looking for when receiving bids as well as strategies for host cities to overcome the obstacles they face in the creating, bidding and event delivery process.
