£140,000 to Manage UK's Leading Outdoor Disability Arts Festival

Writing about web page http://www.ready-for-business.co.uk

OK, this is a much smaller event which showed up on the radar, but it is still a £140,000 business opportunity. This contract is to provide creative programming, delivery and on-site management (including disability access planning), for the UK's leading outdoor Disability arts festival.

London's Liberty disability rights festival, is a free one-day event that takes place on Trafalgar Square.  Liberty is a showcase for creative work by Deaf and disabled artists and performers, working in conjunction with an advisory group of disability organisations. The event attracts an audience of around 5 000 people (15 000 people throughout the day).

As this contract could be extended for a further 3 years, the business could grow to a sizable £560,000 !

Yet another opportunity for an event management contract from the Greater London Authority.

Creative programming, delivery and on-site management of Rise: London United Against Racism - a free large-scale (multi-stage) outdoor music festival, which attracts an audience of around 40,000 people at any one time (up to 100 000 over the day). The festival will be staged in a Greenfield Park location. The event features a varied programme of multi cultural performances (comprising of wide range of music styles) and visitor experiences.

With possible contract extensions, you could be looking at approximately £2m.

London St Patrick's Day Festival | Tender for £350k

If organising the News Year's Eve event in London is too big, perhaps the St Patrick's Day Festival contract for £350,000 is more to your liking. Especially if you have experience in programming Irish and Celtic performers.

The St Patrick's Day Festival is a free entry event attracting combined audiences of 150,000 people throughout the day. The event features a varied programme of Irish themed cultural performances (comprising of popular and traditional music and dance) and visitor experiences.

This twelve month contract, has the option to be extended for an additional three years - so another good chance to build a track record for 2012 related events, not to mention trousering £1.4 million!

Can you organise London's New Year's Eve Event, for about £1.35m

Can you organise London's New Year's Eve Event, for about £1.35m ex-VAT? If so the Greater London Authority need to hear from you.

Occasionally our 2012 Tender Detector picks up business opportunities which are not directly linked to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. There are going to be a whole host of events between now and the end of the Games. These will of course need to be organised, which is a business opportunity in itself, but each event brings other requirements - supply of food and drink, catering, support staff, transport, logistics and deliveries, security etc.

London's New Year's Eve Event is one of the opportunities which requires an events organisation and management contract. Now £1.35m is pretty good, but if you do a good job, the contract can be extended for an additional 3 years - which makes a whopping £5,400,000. And a good track record here would put you in pole position for 2012 events.

The event consists of a 10-minute midnight fireworks display, which for the past 4-years has been staged using the London Eye as its focal point. However, given the popularity of the event, provision should be made in respect of audience welfare and viewing facilities at multiple sites in London (including Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square) for a period of up to 6-hours.

Bidders will need experience in large scale crowd management operations, for audiences in excess of 1,080,000 people - so even considering my pub management experience, I think this is a tad out of my league! Maybe one for Warwick Hospitality?

London 2012 Olympic Tenders | Waste Management Services

Writing about web page http://www.ready-for-business.co.uk

Today the ODA also called for:

.... expressions of interest for the procurement of an operator to provide a waste management service for the Olympic Park. The service will comprise detailed design, construction and ongoing maintenance of a waste management service for venues and locations within the Olympic Park boundary.

So currently on the Ready for Business site we have 10 live tenders running. In addition, 74 other Olympic tender notices have been published to date, which is pretty good considering we are still just under five years away from the big event. But just to get it in perspective, compare that to the rest of the tender notices we have managed here at WMCCM (www.wmccm.co.uk). It's a massive 40,000 a year!

London 2012 Olympics | Its a dirty job but someone has to do it

Writing about web page http://www.ready-for-business.co.uk

London 2012 | It's a dirty job - but someone has to do it

Or to put it another way, where there's muck, there's brass! Here is the latest tender invitation fro the Olympic Delivery Authority:

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) invites expressions of interest for Primary sewer and pumping station contracts. The scope of the contract is for the design, supply, construction, commissioning and handover of a deep foul sewer and pumping station and certain associated secondary sewer works.

Deep foul sewer - doesn't leave a lot to the imagination! But with several 100,000 spectators, officials, TV crews, journalists visiting every day, most of them will have to 'visit the rest room', and leave a little message for London. Just look at the scope of the project.

A deep foul sewer and pumping station with the following approximate dimensions:

- one 1.8km long, 1200mm diameter foul water tunnel

- 16 shafts of between 3m and 6m in diameter

- one foul water pumping station, including rising mains to handle a peak flow rate of 1050 l/s.

That's a whole lot a  s h 1 t   !

1050 litres per second - can you measure p**h in litres or kilo's - suppose it depends on your brand of curry and beer.

Why 1050 - where is the extra 50 coming from?

Someone has got to do it - and I'm sure someone will make a lot of money from this tender, including the consultant who came up with extra 50 l/s.

This tender can be found on www.ready-for-business.co.uk which lists the current live Olympic tenders. All other tenders can be found on www.wmccm.co.uk

 


London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games | Design and Construction of Utility Infrastructure

London 2012 | Design and Construction of electricity, gas, water and telecommunication infrastructure

Further to my last post about the Utililities Industry Day at the ODA on 15th August 2007, I see there are now calls for companies to submit Expressions of Interest in order to start bidding for the contract.

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) invites expressions of interest from companies with an interest in the design and construction of utility infrastructure for the Olympic Park, including electricity, gas, water and telecommunication infrastructure. Applicants have until 12:00 noon on 3 September 2007 to publish their response. The latest time and date that the ODA will action requests for clarification from applicants is 12.00 noon on 29 August 2007.

Looks like the submission deadline is more realistic - or perhaps everyone is on holiday?
