        INTRODUCTORY OVERVIEW/ HISTORY OF EVENTS
The Bid Manual

This manual will familiarize the potential bidder with (1) USA TAEKWONDO, (2) the
requirements of hosting the Senior National Championships, and (3) the process for filing
a Bid Application. Once a host city has been awarded the event, this manual can be
converted into a basic planning and operations manual. It can also be a valuable tool for
the host organization with their planning efforts and subsequent program operation. It
should be noted that while the term “city” is a frequent referral, the potential host is not
limited to city government or specialized organizations.

The Bid Application

The application is in a questionnaire format and responds to the requests and
requirements outlined in the Bid Manual. In addition to the submittal of the bid
application, prospective hosts are being asked to attach other materials and information.
These are important supplements to the total fact-finding process USA TAEKWONDO
needs in order to make their best-informed decision.

The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) recognizes USA TAEKWONDO
(USAT) as the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of Taekwondo in the
United States. A primary function of the NGB is to conduct national events in its sport.
One of these events for USA TAEKWONDO is the USA TAEKWONDO Senior
National Taekwondo Championships.

          USA TAEKWONDO SENIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

USA TAEKWONDO (USAT) conducts a Senior National Championships each year in
conjunction with the Junior Olympics in June/July. This event is part of the athlete
selection pipeline for athletes wanting to be a member of the USA Senior National Team.
The event is broken down into two senior sparring divisions and one forms division.
Combined with this event are also competitions for Ultra (age 33+), Junior Black Belts
(14-17), and Senior Color belt competitors. However, only the Senior Black Belts are
eligible to compete for a spot on the USA Senior National Team.

The top 4 athletes per weight division in the male and female divisions at each qualifier
will qualify for the World Class division at the Senior National Championships. The top
4 athletes in each World Class division at the Senior National Championships will then
qualify to compete in the Team Trials Fight-Off in January of the following year in
Colorado Springs. The top 2 athletes from this competition will then compete in a Fight-
Off competition in conjunction with our US Open Championships in February.




                                             4
 The Senior National competition includes four days of competition and 1 day of
 registration. Competitors will compete on multiple days depending on the competition
 schedule.

 USA TAEKWONDO is expecting athlete participation of 1,500 and coach participation
 of 300 for the event. These are very conservative numbers and each event may attract
 additional participants.

 A principal goal of the site selection process is to showcase the sport of Taekwondo in
 different regions of the country. Other by-products are an increased awareness and better
 appreciation of Taekwondo in the local community while allowing USA TAEKWONDO
 to better identify the World Class athletes capable of competing for the USA in
 international events.

                          TAEKWONDO OVERVIEW
USA TAEKWONDO Mission Statement

The mission of USA TAEKWONDO shall be to enable United States athletes to achieve
sustained competitive excellence and promote and grow the sport of Taekwondo.

WHAT IS USA TAEKWONDO?

USA Taekwondo (USAT) is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sports of
Taekwondo in the United States of America as recognized by the United States Olympic
Committee (USOC). USAT provides developmental opportunities for Taekwondo
athletes throughout the U.S. to cultivate their knowledge of the sport while striving for
world-class status.

Taekwondo is a defensive, martial art that combines philosophy, mental discipline,
physical exercise, and physical ability. It promotes a wide range of principles including
the following:
    • Good physical condition
    • Self-Defense
    • Self-Confidence
    • Respect
    • Good health regardless of gender, physique, or age

The origins of Taekwondo, which go back two thousand years, lie in Korea. During its
history, this sport has been known by various names, like Taekyon or Subak. The official
name, Taekwondo, was announced in 1955; a year later, the first championships were
held. The Korean Taekwondo Federation was founded in 1965, and the World
Taekwondo Federation was founded in 1973. During the same year the first World
Championship took place.

1980 was an important year for the sport, since the International Olympic Committee
(IOC) acknowledged Taekwondo as an Olympic sport. It was included as a display event
in two successive Olympic Games: in Seoul (1988) and Barcelona (1992). Taekwondo
was included on the Olympic Games competition schedule for the first time at the Sydney
Games in 2000.

In preparing for the next quadrennium (2009-2012), USAT looks to expand current
programs and to create additional developmental avenues for athletes wanting to
represent the U.S. at the international level. Some of the programs USAT looks to
provide are developmental opportunities at the grassroots level including high
performance clinics for athletes ages 6-17. It is the USAT's goal to identify world class
athletes and provide them with the best training, international competitions, educational
opportunities, and a continuous pipeline to the Olympic Games.

The Bid Process
Outlined in Section 5 of this manual is a description of USA TAEKWONDO's
requirements for the conduct of the USA TAEKWONDO Senior National Taekwondo
Championships. If all of these requirements can be met, the bid procedures for this event
are located in Section 10. Of great interest to USA TAEKWONDO is a host city that can
provide all of the requirements and conform to USA TAEKWONDO's existing and
projected obligations to its Event sponsors, while assisting with the procurement of Event

       room nights at local hotels with the average family spending a minimum of 2.3
       nights in the Host City.

RECOGNITION AND VISIBILITY

   •   Visitor Visibility: Your city will get exposure to approximately 1,500-4,000

       Junior Olympic Taekwondo Championships, or one of 6 National Qualifiers. If
       the first event is successful for both USA TAEKWONDO and the Host City, USA
       TAEKWONDO may entertain opportunities to bring other USA TAEKWONDO
       events back to the Host City on a cyclical basis.

USA TAEKWONDO INC.’S EXPECTATIONS OF THE HOST CITY
The National Qualifiers are the beginning of a major program of USA TAEKWONDO
(USAT) and have the potential of being a major developmental/ high performance
pipeline for Taekwondo in the United States. While USA TAEKWONDO is responsible
for conducting the event, the Host City is expected to provide the basic ancillary
ingredients surrounding the conduct of the championships.

It is important the bidding group is fully aware of the following expectations when
considering the hosting of this event. They will be primary issues in the final
negotiations as well as integral components of the operating agreements and final
decisions.

Upon submittal of the bid, USA TAEKWONDO will assume the bidder has read and
fully understands the expectations, and further, is prepared to assume the responsibilities.
Upon receipt of the Bid Application, and witnessed by an authorized signature, a bid will
be considered an official invitation for USA TAEKWONDO to proceed with the
assumptions in place.

A. COMPETITION VENUE

A primary consideration is the use of a Dome or elevated-seating venue preferably at no
or a substantially reduced cost to the USA TAEKWONDO for the conduct of the USA
TAEKWONDO National Qualifiers and ancillary meetings. Lease fees are frequently
negotiated between host hotels, the local Convention and Visitors Bureau and local
sponsors in order to reach a satisfactory rental agreement. Specific requirements for this
event are:

1. Arena-style venue is preferred. This venue must contain open floor space at a
   minimum of 20,000-25,000 square feet.

Or
     An open space under one roof with a minimum of 60,000-70,000 square feet.
     Column-free space is preferred along with elevated seating for the spectators.

     ***If this area is a convention center, bleacher seating must be available for a
     minimum of 2,500 spectators.

2. The following shall be available at no additional cost:

        •   1 Secure Storage room (20’ x 20’ minimum) for USA TAEKWONDO and
            vendors to lock up merchandise and properties
        •   Loading dock capable of receiving 1- 53’ trailer and an equipment trailer for
            the duration of the event



                                              12
       •   A vendor area with the capabilities of handling a minimum of 5- 10’ x 10’
           exhibitor booths and 1- 20’ x 20’ booth

       •   A volunteer hospitality room with capacity for 50 people
       •   Banquet setting capable of seating a minimum of 100 people for lunch and
           dinner
       •   A Registration area with electrical outlets and an internet connection. The
           registration area should have a separate entrance from ticketed participants
           with the ability to host 8 registration units. Please note that this is a high
           traffic area with long lines.
       •   Weigh-in rooms, male and female, with electrical outlets. These spaces should
           be approximately 20' x 20'. Please note that this is a high traffic area with
           long lines.
       •   Meeting rooms capable of accommodating the following:
                i. Coaching Orientation- prepared for 100, theater-style from 7:30am-
                    8:30am each morning of competition and on one evening
               ii. Referee Meeting Room- prepared for 100, theater-style for each
                    competition day
              iii. Referee Seminar Meeting Rooms- Open area room. Two rooms
                    needed one day prior to competition.

All of these rooms shall be in close proximity to the playing area.

3. Suitable time for the installation of a portable competition surface (supplied by USA
   TAEKWONDO) and teardown following the completion of the Event. Usually set-
   up and teardown can be accommodated by making the venue available one day prior
   to the start of the competition and one day following the completion of the
   competition.

   Friday from 9am - 8 pm and Sunday after competition concludes for up to 3 hours.

          certified staff to operate these machines
       • 4 pull carts
       • 2 pallet jacks

B. HOUSING

USA TAEKWONDO’s main concern is providing an extensive range of hotels from
accommodations, price, amenities, distance from the venue, and willingness to work with
USA TAEKWONDO to provide necessary staff/ officials’ rooms.

   1. The Tournament Housing Service (THS) will be coordinating the contracts with
      local hotels for staff and participating athletes, coaches, and spectators through
      our 2011 events. In reviewing contracts for hotels and in order to be selected as a


                                            13
       block hotel for our events, a reduced-rate package which must be the lowest
       available to anyone staying at these hotels during this time period, have a
       complimentary room policy from all hotels, and provide the USA TAEKWONDO
       event staff with rooms (to be detailed later) at no charge to USA TAEKWONDO.
       The host hotel for this event must be able to provide the registration and meeting
       room space at no additional charge to USA TAEKWONDO if not available at the
       venue. The requirements for this meeting space will be detailed in a later housing
       section.

   2. It is equally important that the hotels set up meal packages or discount coupons
      for our participants during the event. USA TAEKWONDO would like to
      advertise this information on our website and in the information provided to our
      participants. Ten to fifteen dollars is a good price range for a buffet-style
      breakfast.

C. STAFFING

The Local Organizing Committee

Organizations bidding on this event must specify a Local Organizing Committee (LOC)
and chairperson; it is recommended that the LOC has prior event-planning experience.
USA TAEKWONDO also recommends that the LOC communicates with local
Taekwondo clubs to coordinate event specific personnel and volunteers. Please keep in
mind that in order for the event to run in an orderly and organized fashion, USA
TAEKWONDO will rely on the LOC and the host city to provide this additional support.
The following are staff who USA TAEKWONDO would like provided by the LOC and
city bidding on the event:

Event Manager: A primary contact person once the city and LOC are awarded the bid.

Event Coordinator: The person responsible for the details of the event along with being
able to communicate with the entire staff. This person will also act as a liaison between
the USA TAEKWONDO Events Department and the media outlets in the host city.

Facility Event Director: The primary contact for the facility hosting the event.

Volunteer Coordinator: This person should be the lead for the LOC in coordinating
volunteers and staff to help run the event and registration procedures and must be on-site
for the entire event. This person will be responsible for helping to recruit medical
volunteers. It is highly advised that USA TAEKWONDO is part of the selection process
in naming a volunteer coordinator.

Sponsorship and Marketing Coordinator: This person will act as a liaison between
USA TAEKWONDO and the LOC in order to maximize local sponsorship opportunities.
The proceeds from the sponsorship sales or other revenue-sharing opportunities can be
negotiated in order to benefit both USA TAEKWONDO and the LOC. However, the



                                            14
LOC must coordinate and get final approval from the Director of Events prior to signing
any sponsorship deals in order to avoid conflicts with USA TAEKWONDO National
Sponsorship deals currently in place.

D. MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES

The bidding organization and the LOC must provide the following services and products
in their bid package. In order for the bid to be considered, those services marked
“required” must be addressed in the bid package. Any service or product in addition to
those “required” will only enhance the final bid package and will be strong
considerations when the USA TAEKWONDO INC. awards the bid.

REQUIRED
  1. Assistance with obtaining tax-exempt status in the State where the Event is being
     conducted as USA TAEKWONDO is a 501c3 organization.

                            VENUE REQUIREMENTS
In order for USA TAEKWONDO to host a successful event, the venue or facility is one
of the most important considerations in the bid selection process. All organizations
submitting a bid must also submit a detailed floor plan of the proposed venue to include
the competition area and the concourse or vendor area. USA TAEKWONDO requests a
CAD file of the venue at the time the bid is submitted.

A. COMPETITION AREA

A convention-style venue shall have an open and unobstructed floor space of at least
60,000-70,000 square feet for six to ten- 30’ x 30’ WTF regulation rings with a 15’ safety
walkway in between each mat. An arena-style venue shall have an open and
unobstructed floor space of at least 20,000-25,000 square feet for six to ten- 30’ x 30’
WTF regulation rings with a 15’ safety walkway in between each mat. The ideal
competition area will be a dome-type stadium where the spectators do not have access to
the competition floor. In addition, there should be seating for a minimum of 20 people
around each mat. Please see the attached diagram. If bleacher seating is used for
spectators, this seating must be a minimum of 10’ feet from the mat area. In addition, the
competition area must be enclosed by crowd control barricades while taking into account
the traffic flow patterns and spectator viewing without congestion for the participants.
For this reason, the bid organization should provide a CAD drawing to USA
TAEKWONDO upon submitting the bid.

B. COMPETITION SURFACE

USA TAEKWONDO will supply portable mats which will arrive two days prior to
competition in a USA TAEKWONDO supplied trailer. USA TAEKWONDO staff and
the assigned Tournament Committee will coordinate the mat layout for the facility based
off of the final CAD drawing supplied by the USA TAEKWONDO staff. USA
TAEKWONDO will provide the host facility with a venue diagram as well. The
installation, teardown and repacking of the portable mat surfaces will be under the
direction of USA TAEKWONDO's Tournament Committee and staff. The LOC and the
Volunteer Coordinator in cooperation with USA TAEKWONDO will be responsible for
providing the work force necessary to aid in this process.

C. VENUE HOURS

The playing site must be available for move-in/ set-up one day prior to the first
competition day no later than 8:00am local time. The set-up of the venue will include
unloading the mats using the facility forklift, construction of rings, banner placement,
running of electrical and internet needs, and construction of the registration area.

   1. For each competition day, USA TAEKWONDO requests access to the venue at
      7:00am each morning for a maximum of 20 staff with competition beginning at


                                            16
       9:00am. The doors will open for ticketed participants at 8:00am. The venue must
       be available through 12:00am or until the close of competition. Thirty minutes
       following the last competition match, USA TAEKWONDO would like all
       competition doors closed and all persons to vacate the facility.

   2. USA TAEKWONDO also requests 2 persons from the Tournament Committee
      have access to the venue on the evening prior to set-up in order to tape ring
      markings to the floor which would expedite set-up the following morning. An
      ideal time would be 6-8pm or a time recommended by the Event Coordinator.

D. STORAGE ROOMS

USA TAEKWONDO has a semi-trailer that will arrive at the host venue up to one week
prior to setup with the goal being one day prior to set-up. This USA TAEKWONDO
semi-trailer must be allowed to arrive and remain at the service dock until the trailer is
reloaded upon completion of the tournament. In addition, USA TAEKWONDO requests
the right to use the forklifts or the ability to rent this equipment for use at the venue.
Some members of the USA TAEKWONDO staff and Tournament Equipment Committee
are certified and experienced in the use of this machinery and will need the use of them
extensively during teardown and setup. Approval for the USA TAEKWONDO staff to
operate this equipment will be requested.

In addition, USA TAEKWONDO will have many shipments of supplies and merchandise
sent to the host venue and hotel up to one week prior to the event dates. USA
TAEKWONDO requests the host venue and hotel accept these packages at no additional
charge and store them in a secure area.

USA TAEKWONDO will need 1 storage area to be used for supplies, medals,
merchandise, and for vendor merchandise. Once the USA TAEKWONDO staff arrives
at the venue, the USA TAEKWONDO staff should receive keys and access to the storage
area for the entire duration of the event.

J. HIGH-SPEED INTERNET ACCESS NEEDS

USA TAEKWONDO will bear the costs of these communication expenses but an

of the bid package submitted. The following are the internet access needs for USA
TAEKWONDO for the duration of the event:

       1. 1 high-speed access point in the registration area
       2. 1 high-speed access point in the USA TAEKWONDO staff office

K. NETWORKING NEEDS

USA TAEKWONDO will have approximately 25 laptop computers that need to be
networked for the entire duration of the event. USA TAEKWONDO will provide all of
the equipment including the laptops, servers, and Ethernet cables. USAT will also be
responsible for networking all equipment and ensuring the network works properly
throughout the event.

L. REGISTRATION AREA

USA TAEKWONDO will run registration in the host venue during all competition days.
The registration will consist of all participants picking up their credentials and participant
packages. In order to reduce confusion among those coming to the venue for registration
versus ticketed spectators, USA TAEKWONDO requires the registration area be
sectioned off or separate from the competition venue entrance. The registration area
space should be large enough to hold a minimum of eight (8) registration units and
registration lines of up to 50 persons. Past rooms have been 8,000 square feet to 10,000
square feet. In addition, USA TAEKWONDO will need stanchions to designate different
lines and to maintain order. The following is a sample schedule for registration:



                                             21
   •   Friday: 3pm – 8pm
   •   Saturday: 12pm – 4pm
   •   Sunday: 8am - 9:30am

M. WEIGH-IN AREA

This section should be near the registration area logistically placed to reduce congestion
as long lines may occur. USA TAEKWONDO will provide five (5) scales and the pipe
and drape necessary to section off the male versus female weigh-in areas. Within this
area, USA TAEKWONDO will need two (2) electrical outlets and the ability to network
computers from the registration area to the weigh-in area with 100’ cat 5 ethernet cables.
USA TAEKWONDO will need to work in conjunction with the Venue Event
Coordinator to customize proper placement of stanchions to differentiate male versus
female lines. Within this section, parents need to be allowed access to accompany their
children throughout the weigh-in process and then exit the building.

                               SECTION 7
                         HOUSING REQUIREMENTS
Tournament Housing Services (THS) will be representing USA TAEKWONDO in
negotiating hotel contracts and guaranteeing the rates and needs of USA TAEKWONDO.
In addition, THS will be responsible in negotiating the complimentary room needs for
staff and officials for USA TAEKWONDO. When submitting a bid, please coordinate
with THS for all hotel needs and questions.

Recent USA TAEKWONDO history indicates the need for hotel blocks to accommodate
approximately 500 room nights for the entire duration of the event. While numerous
hotels should be used, USA TAEKWONDO strongly stresses the need for a wide range
of cost and amenities provided by hotels located in close proximity to the competition
venue. It is very important that the contracted daily rate be the lowest available during
the time of the event. Hotels not within walking distance to the competition venue should
provide discounted transportation options for the participants.

In choosing the primary host hotel for the event, USA TAEKWONDO will need one
hotel for VIPs, staff, tournament committee, referees and medical committee.

The following will be considered when choosing a host hotel for the event:

A. HEADQUARTERS HOTEL

In choosing a headquarters hotel for the USA TAEKWONDO National Qualifiers, the
hotel should be a four or five-star hotel within two block walking distance to the
competition venue. This hotel will act as the primary hotel for registration and meetings
leading up to the event. Guestrooms for USA TAEKWONDO needs should be available
from two days prior to the event to the conclusion of the event. In order to be considered
as the headquarters hotel, the hotel will need to provide the following to the USA
TAEKWONDO at no additional charge:

   1. Guest Rooms
      The rate for all guestrooms shall be the lowest available to anyone staying at the
      hotel during this time period. The majority of the rooms needed for this event
      will be double/double with up to 4-person occupancy. The agreed upon room rate
      shall be equal for single, double, triple, and quad occupancy.

   2. Staff Rooms
      USA TAEKWONDO will need a block of fifty (50) double/double rooms set
      aside for staff and referees. The rate for the officials block will not contain the
      Rebate or Housing Service commission and will need to be substantially lower
      than the rate offered the attendees. The USA TAEKWONDO Event staff will be
      providing a rooming list for the above mentioned rooms no later than 2 weeks
      prior to the event dates.



                                            23
   In addition and in order to meet the needs of USA TAEKWONDO, the
   headquarters hotel should provide the following:

3. One (1) complimentary two-bedroom suite.

4. USA TAEKWONDO requires the Headquarters Hotel to provide a minimum of 1
   complementary double/double room at no charge to the USA TAEKWONDO
   room for every 20 cumulative room nights booked throughout the event.
   The double-double rooms should be available one night prior to the competition
   dates with the suites being available three nights prior to the posted competition
   dates. USA TAEKWONDO will provide a rooming list to THS at least two
   weeks prior to confirm the rooms needed for this event.

5. Advance Room Reservations
   As stated previously, USA TAEKWONDO will use Tournament Housing
   Services (THS) for reservations of all block rooms. There will be a cutoff date of
   2 weeks prior to the first day of the Event for room reservations. Then and only
   hen will individual hotels be able to release the block and issue these rooms to the
   general public. After the cutoff date, participants will be directed to contact the
   hotels directly on a space available basis. THS or USA Taekwondo will NOT
   sign any contract that contains an Attrition/ Performance Clause.

6. Vehicle Parking
   Free parking for a maximum of 10 USA TAEKWONDO staff vehicles for the
   entire duration of stay and will be identified by USA TAEKWONDO Events
   Department upon providing the rooming list. Any other parking is to be added to
   the master bill.

7. Complimentary or Discounted Breakfast
   The headquarters hotel will need to provide complimentary or a heavily
   discounted breakfast package for all staff and officials staying at the hotel. The
   ideal breakfast would be buffet style available from 6:30am until 8:00am each
   morning. Upon arrival to the hotel, all USA TAEKWONDO staff and officials
   should be provided with breakfast coupons with the charges being placed on the
   USA TAEKWONDO master account for only those coupons redeemed. An
   estimated cost should be around $10 to $15 for full-service breakfast buffet.

8. Transportation
   Should the officials’ headquarters hotel be located more than 2 blocks away from
   the competition venue, the hotel will be responsible for transporting the officials
   to and from the venue twice a day.

9. Rebate to USA TAEKWONDO and a commission to the THS Company
   The hotel must provide both a rebate AND a commission to be considered a block
   or host hotel for this event. The commission is 10% and the rebate is $13.00.




                                        24
   10. Meeting Space
       USA TAEKWONDO will hold event registration, weigh-in, and various coaching
       and referee seminars up to two days prior to competition at the headquarters hotel
       or host venue. These additional meeting spaces should be provided at no
       additional charge and included in the hotel contracts signed with the THS
       Company. USA TAEKWONDO also requests refreshments, such as water and
       coffee, be available at all meetings. A tentative schedule is provided below with
       the seating capacity and style needed.

The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will be responsible for additional duties once the venue
and hotel arrangements have been taken care of. In an effort to provide the best staffing support
possible, USA TAEKWONDO strongly encourages the partnership between the bidding

for the event is very important to the overall success of the event, the host city, and USA
Taekwondo.

volunteers and staff to help run the event and registration procedures. The Volunteer
Coordinator will be responsible for recruiting and scheduling volunteers where and when needed

Coordinator is also responsible for helping to recruit medical volunteers for the duration of the
event. The Volunteer Coordinator must be on-site during registration and the competition to
monitor the volunteer registration.

2. Set-up and Teardown Staff: This group should consist of 20-30 people with the ability to
lift and carry heavy objects. USA TAEKWONDO strongly suggests recruiting the help of local
Taekwondo schools and organizations to aid in this process.

USA TAEKWONDO will provide 2 staff members from the Tournament Committee to
coordinate the volunteers and groups recruited to help with laying of the mats. The set-up crew
will also be responsible for hanging banners and taping the mats.

3. Media and Public Relations Coordinator: This person will act as a liaison between the
USA TAEKWONDO Events Department and the media outlets in the host city. This person’s
main responsibility is aiding the USA TAEKWONDO Events Department in maximizing local

the CVB to handle the details needed in regards to restaurants, logistics, transportation, and other
needs that may arise in preparation and coordination of the event.

needs if the facility is not in charge of coordinating event staffing. This person will work closely
with the USA Taekwondo Event Manager/Director.
