due diligence on major sports events hosts

Bidding processes

Providing due diligence to assist festival organisers, businesses or organising committees select a host for an event right up to a major sports tournament is a specialised task which only an agency experienced in this area can provide.

Our team have assisted major international federations with bidding processes including the Olympic Games and Rugby World Cup. 

We support rights holders in weighing up the pros and cons of their bid candidates by producing structured, easy-to-read enhanced due diligence reports. Our reports allow organisations to compare bids side by side and provide reassurance that no stone has been left unturned. Our host candidate reports provide reassurance to committee members that they have all the information they need to come to a confident decision.

InsightX assists committees in assessing whether a particular event – from a music festival or business summit all the way up to the Summer Olympic Games – is a good fit and will be received well by their country or city and the rest of the world.
