Let The Games Begin

The Olympics begin this Friday with the opening ceremony taking place in London and will run from 27 July – 12 August 2012. Over 1M people will visit the Olympic Stadium throughout the games and will be continuing to visit hospitality establishments in London. There will also be an increase in guests visiting outside of London, as well as UK residents looking to escape the mass of tourists in the city and the rest of the UK could benefit greatly.

A study for Metro shows 1,139 jobs are being advertised at the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, and other 2012 venues. Two in five of these jobs are in hospitality and catering, paying around £95 a day.
