COCA-COLA CONSIDERS PLAN TO OPEN A OLYMPIC CITY
Published October 18, 1994
Coca-Cola plans to leverage its more than $100M in Olympic media and sponsorship outlays in '96 with a variety of big events, including the creation of a Coca-Cola Olympic City in Atlanta. A Coca-Cola spokesperson said that the park will feature attractions enabling visitors to participate vicariously in the Games: "We are considering it. But we have made no commitments." Executives familiar with the theme park plan said Coca-Cola hopes to make it not just a promotional event, but a genuine business, charging an admission price of $25 per person. With projections of 10,000 and 15,000 attendees daily, executives believe the Olympic City could make as much as $375,000 daily -- or about $6.4M during the 17 days of the Summer Games (Joe Mandese, AD AGE, 10/17 issue).
