If you missed out on Olympic Tickets the first time round, today is the day where some people will have the chance to get tickets in the second chance sale. Despite the disappointment of people who haven’t managed to get tickets, business travellers and tourists will still benefit from the London Olympics 2012 in the long run.
The benefits include better service in hotels, improved transport facilities, more choice of meeting venues and more importantly, a greater choice of restaurants and places to eat out.
One of the restaurants that will be opened near the Olympic Games is Wagamama. Wagamama is a modern noodle bar who already has 70 restaurants throughout the UK. We are already fans of many of their dishes, including their side dish duck gyoza. QuoteSearcher are sure that Wagamama is going to be a popular restaurant addition to the Stratford area!
If you hear the words ‘dough balls’, most people will automatically associate those words with Pizza Express! This Italian restaurant chain which is popular with families, large groups and couples is also due to open soon.
Other restaurants that are due to open soon includes the Mexican style restaurant, Wahaca and Latin American restaurant, Las Iguanas.
Not only will these restaurants benefit business travellers and tourists, they’ll also create more jobs and increase the economy in the local area due to overnight stays, commercial restaurant insurance, people eating and drinking out and using public transportation.
The London Olympic will transform London’s East End where the Olympic Village and new venues are being built for the Games, explained Paul Deighton, ceo of the London Organising Committee Olympic Games 2012 (LOCOG). Deighton also explained that hotels in the Capital who are offering extortionate rates, which could discourage visitors have been “spoken to”.
Not only will there be more interesting places to visit in and around the West End, Deighton said that the LOCOG has also been working with restaurants and hotels to improve their service and levels of hospitality.
