Transport and Exceptional Public Events

The focus of this round table is to assess the extensive and intensive planning and preparation required for mega and exceptional public events. Events such as wrapping the Reichstag, 1995, the World Exhibition EXPO 2000 and the annual Biesenthal bikers meeting in Germany, world skiing championships in Austria and international exhibitions in Portugal require planning for not just the hundreds of thousands of participants and tourists but for traffic control and management to and from the events. Whether for the Olympics or World Cup play, lessons presented here apply on an international scale. Event planners must take into account the geographical and spatial concentration of traffic, traffic patterns related to individual event scheduling, the impact of mega event traffic on normal urban traffic flow, and maintain very close cooperation between event organizers and sponsors and local public authorities in charge of transport operations.
