Large-scale sporting, cultural and festive events are increasing in number; however, no two such events are quite the same. This is obvious when one compares an event like the World Cup with the Tour de France cycling competition. Each event has its own distinctive characteristics.

Looking at such events globally from the standpoint of their transport implications is something new. Exceptional events generate major flows of visitors and often require material back-up on a very large scale. They also involve very specific transport and logistics requirements. Security is another major consideration that must be taken into account when studying transportation for such events.

The Round Table examined such events in Europe and the rest of the world, and noted that setting ambitious targets contributes to the quality of the event.

Almost every experience is unique and one of the main conclusions of the Round Table is that a record should be kept of each event with regard to its organisation and staging requirements. In this way, an event “memory” could be built up and made available to any would-be event organiser. The Round Table is the first stage in this process.
