Efficient transport, mobility, and infrastructure are key factors in the successful hosting of major international events. This is mainly because of the significant role that these elements play in creating positive and memorable experiences for guests.

But the challenge is being able to strike a balance between providing these essential elements for major events while still providing a smooth guest experience with infrastructure that will continue to create benefits for the destination well into the future.

In this episode of the Anticipate Podcast, Crystal Mcclelland, Content Editor, discusses with several experts from WSP in the Middle East how they help host cities develop and deliver sustainable and future-ready systems and events infrastructure.
