Host City

Host City is a world leading brand that brings together event hosting cities with the owners and right holders of sports, cultural and business events and the suppliers who provide the infrastructure and know-how behind events. The main Host City Conference and Exhibition takes place annually in November and is currently held in Glasgow. Host City has also held events in Beijing and London. 

Host City was launched as a magazine in the run up to the Beijing Olympics in 2003. It was widely regarded and read amongst the Beijing Olympic organizing authorities and participating companies. In 2009 Cavendish Group’s CEO Matthew Astill was awarded the Great Wall Friendship Award by the Mayor of Beijing for Cavendish’s work in creating links between Chinese and international experts and suppliers in the run up to the Olympics. After the Beijing Olympics the brand evolved into events and international event hosting.
