Mike Gibbons is Head of Live Sites and UK Coordination for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Prior to joining LOCOG, he was the Project Director, BBC Live Events where he set up a pilot project to establish what became a network of nine Big Screens in the Public Space Broadcasting Project. This led to his being part of the first Urban Screens Conference in Amsterdam 2005 and being Chair of Manchester Urban Screens Conference 2007. In his role with LOCOG, Mike and his team are co-operating with the BBC and relevant city councils to install large LED screens in urban centres across the United Kingdom as part of the programme to bring the Olympic Games in 2012 to as many people as possible. These screens will then be a legacy of the 2012 Games.
