Games Experts is a free to use, not-for-profit website which has been established by Podium - The Further and Higher Education Unit for the 2012 Games. The aim of the website is to allow the world’s media and academic community to search a comprehensive database of professionals who are leading experts in a variety of Games-related fields and contact them for quotes, advice and full interviews.
The Games Experts Reception is open to leading academics and the world's media, and will take place within the stunning surrounds of Senate House at the University of London.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from leading academic experts across a variety of London 2012 fields including sport, culture, skills and network with colleagues from the Further and Higher Education sectors across the UK. There will also be the chance to meet journalists from across the globe, many of whom will be accommodated in nearby Bloomsbury.
With the eyes of the world firmly on the UK and the London 2012 Games, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our country's experts to showcase their knowledge, experience and talent to a global audience.
