Olympic Games Experience
Planning & Delivery
MI was founded on the immense capability developed through the delivery of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Whilst the bidding, planning and delivery of a mega event like the Olympic and Paralympic Games has evolved since that time, the same disciplines and expert knowledge is required to ensure the Games start on time, first time, without any errors or issues.
MI has provided consultancy services to every Summer Olympic Games since Sydney 2000. These services have spanned the breadth of the Olympic journey from the bidding stage through to the successful hosting of the Games – and everything in between. MI has provided assistance to countries developing successful bid submissions to the International Olympic Committee, and developing sport and venue master plans. MI has also provided program and project management services for planning and delivery of the Games, and assisted the International Olympic Committee with the design and documentation of the best practice Games planning methodologies. MI has also been involved in designing and developing the operational solutions and operational readiness programs.
The Olympic Games represents the culmination of years of hard work for the athletes, the Organising Committee, the International Olympic Committee and the many stakeholders who need to come together and integrate to deliver an extraordinary outcome. Pierre de Coubertin, who founded the modern Olympic Games in 1896, noted: “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning, but taking part.”
MI is proud to have taken part in so many moments in history.
