BRENTFORD, ENGLAND, April 07, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- This summer, the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympic games is expected to attract an estimated 8 million spectators in and around London. This contrasts greatly with the mere 85,000 spectators that attended the opening ceremony of the last London Olympic games, held in 1948. How the crowds will affect London's infrastructure is a concern for any London based public service provider or private business; what will be the impact on day to day council services, public transport and the emergency services, and will there be spare capacity to cope with unexpected events?
With less than 150 days to the opening of the event it's worth thinking about how the above issues could affect your organisation's staff and logistics. Products and services are available that can help your organisation maintain levels of resilience, and to continue to operate efficiently throughout this busy period.
