OLYMPIC AGENDA 2020
Olympic Agenda 2020 is both visionary and far reaching. International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement has focused the IOC and its key stakeholders on putting sport at the forefront of development and progress, while embracing the challenges of an ever changing world.
The 40 recommendations within Agenda 2020 set an exciting framework and structure for the future of the Olympic Movement, sport and society. At the same time, many of the recommendations offer Olympic sponsors a unique opportunity to further develop their commercial partnerships and garner a greater return on their marketing investment.
Each Olympic sponsor has their own unique business and marketing objectives. So, why should brands consider alignment with the IOC’s agenda? Quite simply, doing so creates opportunities for sponsors to:
- Further link, leverage and amplify Olympic partnerships from both a business and marketing standpoint across the Olympic Movement 365 days a year – in both Olympic and non-Olympic years.
- Enhance Olympic partnerships through the exchange of intellectual, technical, and human capital that reinforces shared values and attributes.
- Access key IOC, Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (OCOG), and National Olympic Committee (NOC) stakeholders and influencers on a global and local level.
- Drive new business in target markets.
