Salt Lake City, Utah
Purpose: Determine if Salt Lake City/Utah should pursue a bid for hosting Winter Olympic/Paralympic Games.
Background: The IOC has initiated the official Discussion Period for hosting in 2026. A city must declare its intent to host by March 31, 2018. It is possible that both 2026 and 2030 could be awarded in this bid cycle.
Objective: Determine by February 1, 2018 if Salt Lake City/Utah should pursue a bid. A key determinant of this decision will be economic feasibility given that hosting either 2026 or 2030 would mean hosting back-to-back Olympic/Paralympic Games in the U.S., which has an impact on the amount of potential domestic sponsorship revenue.
