Commonwealth Games organisers have been asked to produce a business plan for next summer’s Games, which take place in Glasgow, with “real urgency”.
Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chief executive Stewart Patrick said businesses wanted to plan around marketing, branding and business promotion events.
Organisers have also been asked to provide more detailed information about hotel bookings and disruption to traffic.
Games chief executive David Grevenberg said: “The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games present unprecedented opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Already businesses within the city have benefited from £183m of Games-related contracts.
“At Games time Glasgow will host large numbers of visitors. They will enjoy worldclass sport but they will also immerse themselves in the city’s unique culture, retail and hospitality opportunities.
“We want businesses to be primed and ready to make the most of this very special occasion. We also want them to be able to deliver their day-to-day operations effectively.”
Commonwealth ticket sales are now open, including for a full complement of fullbore, pistol and small-bore events at the Barry Buddon shooting centre, Carnoustie.
