The Rio 2016 Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games welcomed more than 25,000 people to the venue's free public exhibitions and entertainment events during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Thousands more are expected during the Paralympic Games.

Casa Brasil was also used as an area where Brazilian trade, investment and tourism agencies networked, with approximately 30 high-level events being held by partners and stakeholders during the Olympic Games.

Ernst & Young, Omega and Nissan were named among the companies that held major events at the venue.

Carlos Arthur Nuzman, president of Rio 2016, said: "As we prepare to host the Games after London, Casa Brasil is even more important in showcasing our project, Brazilian culture, the country as a tourist destination and the new business opportunities it can offer."

"We want visitors in London to get the first feel of a vibrant and transformed Rio, and we want them to be excited about coming to our city for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016."
