LA 2028 and the Evolution of the Olympic Games Vision for Cities

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 03:00 PM – 4:15 PM Convention Center, Room 501 Open to All Attendees
Concurrent Session

The iconic Olympic brand has gone through considerable challenges since the success of London 2012. In response, the International Olympic Committee has selected Paris and Los Angeles to host the Games in 2024 and 2028, respectively. In working with the IOC, key stakeholders in the city, and the state and federal government, Los Angeles has developed a vision that takes advantage of the 11-year lead time. It looks at the future for Games delivery with a focus on financial viability, minimized risk, and an unparalleled experience for athletes, visitors, and the local community—all in a privately funded model. LA 2028 will create a transformative Games, using the city’s ideal climate, its unparalleled number of existing world-class venues, its unique culture of creativity and innovation, and its youthful energy. Join us in an insightful discussion on the approach and vision for the LA 2028 Games.
