How Your Business can Benefit from the 2010 Olympic Games

February 26, 2009

My, my, how lucky we are.

It seems like just yesterday that we heard those immortal words: “The
2010 Olympic Winter Games are awarded to…the city of Vancouver!”

Not that there’s ever a bad time to live in The Best Place on Earth.

The 2010 Games present an unprecidented opportunity for companies to
gain world class experience and shine on the international stage. But
benefiting from this event means doing a little bit of leg work. When
you begin searching for ways to contribute your services, start with
this invaluable resource, which is a must-use for any business looking
to stand atop the podium for the world to see.

The 2010 Business Network

The 2010 Business Network
is an online database that allows British Columbia companies to profile
themselves to Games-related buyers including VANOC, Vancouver 2010
sponsors, National Olympic and Paralympic Committees, international
media organizations and dozens of related sporting events.”

The possibilities of the Olympics reach far beyond the actual 2 week
celebration; you could make business connections and gain exposure
which will help your company for years to come. The 2010 Network is
very similar to Industry Blender; it links those looking for services
with those providing services. It’s networking and, as you’ve probably
heard, it’s the best and most efficient way to accomplish your short
and long-term goals.

Signing up for the site is free and will afford you international
exposure through a circulated company profile, the opportunity to make
lasting connections, and access to exclusive workshops and events.

In addition, by becoming involved with the SuperHost program, you will learn how to “Distinguish your Business, WOW your Clients, and Empower your Teams.” Offered by Tourism BC,
this program shows you how to provide elite customer service and win
gold for your business. There’s so much to gain from this experience,
you’ll have to visit the site to find out the rest.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so don’t delay! Get the
ball rolling and set yourself up for succes in 2010 and beyond!

For more information on how you can maximize your opportunities with
this event, please contact RBC Royal Bank Olympic Business Development
