The staff resource in Rio had the task of delivering high-quality production showcases for Team GB, Paralympics GB, London and the wide UK. This involved an event space in both houses that was open to invited guests for a minimum of 15 hours a day for the duration of the Olympics and then the Paralympics. As well as delivering the core event space and business lounge the London team planned, produced and delivered a series of London focused events showcasing London's world-classcultural sector, legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and London 2017 IAAF and IPC World Championships.

As per question 2016/3148 and 2016/3731, a full list or running tally of these meetings was not kept.
