The Chamber is publicising the latest Olympic Games business opportunities on our website, so Members from a whole host of sectors will be aware of the commercial contracts being tendered. In order to benefit from these opportunities, Member companies should register themselves on the CompeteFor website, where buyers for the Games will be looking for potential suppliers.
The latest opportunities for business are as follows:
Commercial Boat Charter - Opportunity in Brief
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), invite expressions of interest for the supply of various motorised boats to support the water based sports. The majority of this requirement will be to support the Sailing events in Weymouth. LOCOG is looking to identify suitable commercial charter companies to supply motorised boats (non sail boats i.e. without mast & sails) on both a bare boat and crewed charter basis.
Services relating to the investigation of complaints / allegations about sustainability issues in the LOCOG supply chain - Opportunity in Brief
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), invite expressions of interest for the supply of services relating to the investigation of complaints / allegations about sustainability issues in its supply chain.
LOCOG is responsible for preparing and staging the 2012 Games. As LOCOG’s procurement focuses on the needs of the Games themselves, it will cover a wide range of goods and services from temporary venues, sports equipment, merchandise produced under licence, temporary commodities and overlay for the venues, through to catering services and other labour provision. Some initial contracts have been let but the majority will be let from early 2010 onwards.
It is highly likely that there will be complaints or allegations made by NGOs, the media and workers in regard to labour standards in the LOCOG supply chain. LOCOG is therefore looking to appoint a company (or companies) to work closely with its Procurement, Retail Licensing, Workforce and Sustainability teams to develop and implement an Investigation Process in respect to any Complaints or Allegations it receives about its supply chain relating to sustainability issues.
Regional Recruitment Venue Hire - Opportunity in Brief
LOCOG is seeking to recruit volunteers UK wide and require venues to be hired in 7 regional locations across the UK for 10 consecutive days per region.

• 10 - 20 Jan 2011 – Glasgow

• 4 – 15 Feb – Belfast
• 17 – 28 Feb – Manchester

LOCOG are expecting to recruit 300 volunteers per day and require a room / hall (approx 450 sq m) which has the ability to be fitted out by a production company to LOCOGs desired look, feel and layout. The venue should be in a central, easily accessible location with good transport link and easy delivery access.
