Host City Outreach

We assist right holders and event organisers reach great partnerships with public authorities all over the world.

Right holders that have integrated agreements with destinations, cities, countries, or regions can rely on support from authorities in structural, economic, and practical ways. It makes events more powerful and provides a platform for new revenue sources, reducing costs, mitigating risks, and running a smoother event all together. 

Modern host cities do not just see events as a mean to generate economic impact through visitors and activity. Cities, regions and countries now see hosting of major events as a tool to leverage existing strategies within social, economic and communication 

Hosting meaningful events has an effect on peoples’ lives, it opens an opportunity to make a change, to communicate and foster engagement like no other medium can. 

As an event organizer, working along the hosting government makes your event more powerful. It can help reduce your costs, obtain financial support, as well as share and mitigate risks.  

A long-lasting partnership allows rights holders to make enduring plans for the future, relying on the ongoing commitment from the political framework and practical assistance, such as permits, customs and integration into the city promotional spaces.
