That sport can be a major economic driver for a city, region or country is well-established concept. The past decade has seen examples across the world, ranging from Fifa World Cups in Germany and South Africa; Olympic Games in Vancouver and London; spectacular additions to the Formula One calendar in Abu Dhabi and Singapore; and a multitude of other world championships and mass participation events.

The economic impact for a city or region of a major event cannot be ignored. For a venue, it can be a crucial element of a wider investment strategy; for an event rights holder, the relationship with the host is an increasingly dynamic and complex one..

SportsPro’s annual Destinations Report has been designed specifically to provide mission critical information and insight for both hosts and rights-holders. Published for the first time last year, the second edition in 2014 will focus on four specific areas, with expert opinion, detailed analysis and the most relevant real-world case studies.
