"Let the games began,” will be the cry in a few weeks at the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
Selecting the host city for the Olympic Games is a desired achievement for any city. Being a host city brings positive media exposure and economic boon. The competition is fierce for this coveted honor.
Since 1999, selection by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is done via a two-phase election procedure.
Any city interested in hosting the Olympics can apply by filling out an extensive application and questionnaire.
Afterwards, the technical requirements are assessed and the IOC Executive Board reviews the candidate cities. The numbers of contenders are reduced and those in the running become Official Candidate Cities. These cities are given the authorization to move forward into their promotional campaigns.
Prospective host cities continue with the full bidding process and submit in-depth information to the evaluation committee, including a visual representation of the five rings of the Olympic and a projection of financial outlay for the Olympics.
The committee members’ stopover at the specific sites several times, assesses them and writes up reports each time for the Executive Board.
After all the assessments are in, the 122 members of the IOC cast their votes by secret ballot, and the winning city is chosen by majority.
