DUBAI, UAE, February 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Since securing the 2022 FIFA World Cup(TM), Qatar has generated a great deal of international intrigue and attention. How can this tiny Gulf state deliver a monumental FIFA World Cup, although much larger countries with existing sporting infrastructure sought to win the Bid to host one of the most sought after global sporting events? Qatar has pledged to design and construct nine new fully enclosed, air conditioned stadiums as well as retrofit three existing stadiums. 
Harold Mayne-Nicholls, head of FIFA’s Inspection group closely examined every aspect of each bidding nation’s proposals to generate the Bid Evaluation Reports. The reports cover everything from the hosting concept itself to sustainable social and human development, stadiums, safety and security.  
Mayne-Nicholls will deliver an exclusive keynote presentation on this bid report at Stadium and Venue Design and Development Qatar taking place 22-26 May 2011 in Doha, Qatar and organized by IQPC.
At the same event, Danny Jordaan, CEO, FIFA 2010 South Africa World Cup Organising Committee will present a case study on learning how to plan stadium developments for global sporting events; and Axel Beinhaus of architecture firm Albert Speer and Partners will speak on Qatar’s stadiums of the future.
