A free drinks reception will follow the event.

Identifying trends that began with the 1851 Universal Exhibition in London and grew with the launch of the modern Olympic Games in 1896, Beatriz will reflect on the last 30 years of event-led cultural regeneration, showing how Barcelona, Glasgow, Sydney, Liverpool and London have been transformed both physically and symbolically thanks to the Olympic Games and the European Capital of Culture initiative.
