London & Partners’ UK sales manager and head of event solutions Zanine Adams told delegates at a UVL venue showcase at the British Museum that there are corporate hospitality opportunities at national Olympic houses.

"The Czech Republic, for example, expects to attract 3,000 people through its doors each day during Games time," she said. "The French are also offering entertainment for the corporate market with hospitality for acts like Jean Michel Jarre."

Adams also revealed that there are still many hotel rooms and event spaces available, and hidden opportunities for corporate groupa.

"Lots of London's private members clubs will be opening up especially for bookings during the Games and would love for a corporate to take over their premises for the duration of the Olympics," she said.

Adams warned companies to plan their hospitality carefully, leaving adequate time for travel and making provisions for any loss of mobile phone signal.
