“We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have such a major Olympic and sports legend as Lord Coe speaking at the Global Convention,” said Revie. “His expertise on bidding, winning, and delivering such a successful London 2012 Games will be an invaluable opportunity for anyone involved with major events.”
