A group of U.K. construction firms with representatives accompanying British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg during his visit to Turkey have "set their eye on participating in building Turkey’s possible Olympic facilities" along with yet-to-be-built stadiums, such as Beşiktaş’s İnönü Stadium, according to Ali Kayalar of the HURRIYET DAILY NEWS. A successful Games experience this summer is pushing U.K. companies to be even more assertive as they search for local partnerships to join their bid. Populus Senior Principal John Barrow said, "We are talking to Turkey’s bid committee. Through a collaboration with Turkish contractors such as Polimeks and Sembol, which we worked very closely with on a project in Kazakhstan, we can give a transfer of knowledge, which will greatly benefit Turkey not only in their Olympic Games but also long afterwards." Populus has taken part in the past 10 Olympic Games (HURRIYET DAILY NEWS, 10/7).
