IS YOUR business fit for the Olympics? A free business event in Ipswich next month will provide some potentially valuable insights into the opportunities available in connection with the London 2012 games.

The event is being supported by the East Anglian Daily Times, Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) and Lloyds TSB.

Speakers will include David Coulson, senior executive, London 2012 business support, at EEDA, and Steve Elsom, area director at Lloyds TSB Commercial.

“Come the Opening Ceremony on July 27, 2012, the London 2012 Games will be part of every conversation,” said Adam Baker, Suffolk project manager for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Your staffing levels, transport plans, technology and security requirements and what you’ll do to mark the 2012 games for your staff and customers, will all require planning.
