Inspiration Abounds At The Olympics
Meanwhile though you need to make sure that you get the London 2012 accommodation in the right place. The Olympics are not a single a single event and in fact London 2012 accommodation isn’t just in London – some events will take place in areas around London. You need to make sure that the accommodation you get is local to the event(s) you are watching before you book it or it will be useless to you.
It is still too soon to look closely at what has and has not worked for the Winter Games in Torino. It is not until all the smoke has cleared that they will know how the event really went. I did however, have the good fortune of being involved with hosting the Salt Lake Winter Games (2002) while I was a college student in Provo, UT. Those Olympics are now four years old and time has given us a great perspective to glean some valuable lessons from them and the way that they were managed.
First of all, it is highly important that you look into getting your London 2012 accommodation right now. There are still sites online that offer London 2012 accommodation and this means you can book easily over the phone or over the net before you go. Many landlords who normally rent out their properties in the long term to clients will be using their properties as London 2012 accommodation and meanwhile many hotels and other places will be offering deals. The number of places where you will be able to stay during the Olympics is large in theory then, but of course it is quickly diminishing and you will find there is a huge clamor for people trying to find somewhere to stay at this time. You need to book now to be certain that you will have somewhere to stay for the big event.
Let’s start with logistics in this part of our series I 15 was under construction for years before the Olympic Games were held, but more importantly, some one had clearly thought out the most popular routes to the venues and where people would be going within the venues. The roads were modified to accommodate the increased traffic and the venues were laid out with the fans in mind. I spent most of my time during the 2002 Olympics at Soldier Hollow, the Cross Country Ski and Biathlon Venue. You could tell that time was spent to design the venue in such a way as to give the fans the most access to the course while making it a great course for the athletes competing. Often times this is a detail that is overlooked for smaller events. The venue will be decorated in a manner that looks great, often times at the expense of functionality.
