Bid Development and Presentations
The City of Richmond can help sport organizations design and develop a winning bid for provincial, national or international sport events. Bid presentation materials and collateral to strengthen a bid to make Richmond the next host city can be provided.
The City of Richmond has a strong partnership with Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, a non-profit, charitable organization that has been bringing people and services together through promotion of volunteerism since 1972.
If an event or bid requires a site inspection of any sport venue, cultural facility or accommodation, the Sport Hosting Office can help organize a professional site visit.
