About conference

  • Анонс обращения Many warm thanks! I was happy to take part in this cool event! It’s the second year in a row that RIOU has provided a venue for an exciting discussion of the challenges and opportunities associated with the legacies of major sports events. This year’s conference brought together top notch speakers from across Eurasia – from Norway to Taiwan. RIOU keeps raising the benchmark and encourages us to work really hard developing solutions that would allow us to wisely use the phenomenal ability of sport to serve as a vehicle of positive change in all areas of social life.

  • Анонс обращения On behalf of Interros Group, and on my own behalf, I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Russian International Olympic University for inviting me to take part in SOL’17. It was an unprecedented event giving industry professionals a unique opportunity to assess the Sochi 2014 Olympic legacy, discuss the existing expertise and prospects for legacies of sports events in other regions and countries. It’s hard to believe that so many substantial reports and discussions could be fitted into just one day. It appears that RIOU knows not only how to manage sport but also how to manage the speed of time. Warmest thanks to Lev Belousov, Irina Badayan and the whole team of the Russian International Olympic University for the comfortable, friendly and constructive atmosphere of SOL’17.

Professionals and experts in the area of major event organisation provided very important and relevant information in an easy-to-understand way. One significant outcome of the conference is a huge number of new professional contacts. It’s great that discussions of issues concerning the legacy of mega events produce solutions that are being implemented in various spheres of city life and operations of sports facilities. Many thanks to the conference organisers!
