PRLog - Aug. 13, 2012 - GLASGOW, U.K. -- After a victorious couple of weeks which has seen 29 gold medals and 65 total medals for Team GB, the London 2012 Olympics are finally over. However for the organising committee of the Commonwealth Games, to be hosted in Glasgow in 2014, the hard work is only just beginning. Direct and outsource sales company First Class Concepts believes that Glasgow has had a taste of hosting a huge sporting event and that the city is chomping at the bit for the real thing.

The organising committee from the Glasgow Commonwealth Games committee will have had an education of a lifetime over the last few weeks as they sat in with LOCOG and learned first-hand how to run a world-class event. First Class Concepts is sure that this experience will set them up for success. “At First Class Concepts we believe that preparation is everything when it comes to success. London 2012 has been a roaring success and it’s been praised around the world. If the Glasgow team can take away what they have seen and learnt and apply that to their own plans, we’re sure that they will do well.”
Aside from the organisational aspects the Glasgow games will get a huge boost from the enthusiasm that people have got from the Olympics. A survey conducted last week showed that the number of Scots who were considering buying tickets for the Commonwealth Games has doubled during London 2012. The competition is expected to draw big names like Sir Chris Hoy who said that he hoped Glasgow would be his swansong. This seems all the more fitting after learning that the velodrome due to open in the east end of Glasgow in October is to be named after him.
First Class Concepts read a staggering figure showing that more than 130 medals at London 2012 had been won by competitors from the 71 Commonwealth members, including Usain Bolt. Jessica Ennis also pointed out last week that the only medal missing from her collection was a Commonwealth one. David Grevemberg, the chief executive of Glasgow 2014 said, “It’s up to us to showcase Glasgow and Scotland as a wonderful hub of activity, of culture, of engagement, of entertainment, of a place to do business, of a wonderful place to live.”
First Class Concepts can vouch for the fact that it’s a wonderful place to do business. “We’ve had another record year and are increasing sales for our existing clients and taking on new clients all the time. We love doing business in Glasgow, we love interacting with its people and we love the pride that the people have for the city. We can’t wait to show that to the rest of the world.”
