EST management, have significant experience of planning and delivering for one-off prestigious sporting events having been involved with the planning and delivery of the Traffic management and parking support for the London 2012 Olympic football events, ticket sales for the Regional football matches accounted for 35% of all tickets sold for the Olympics.
EST management, was closely involved in the design and planning stages of the Olympic football events at the RICOH Arena and worked closely with LOCOG and their traffic consultants to develop the Venue Transport Operation Plan (VTOP) for the events.
