"The Web site is the first component of the 2010 Commerce Centre and will provide B.C. businesses with the tools and resources they need to access the business opportunities created by hosting the Olympics," Premier Gordon Campbell said in a release. "It will play a critical role in putting B.C. businesses in contact with potential partners and clients, helping create jobs and opportunities in communities across the province before, during and after 2010."
The 2010 Commerce Centre Web site is intended to give B.C. companies one-stop access to accurate and timely information about the business opportunities resulting from the Games. It will also be a portal for information to assist B.C. companies in developing Olympic-related business strategies and pursuing new partnerships leading up to, during and after the 2010 Games.
The Web site provides information on topics such as procurement opportunities, procedures and evaluation; vendor qualification criteria; sponsorship, merchandising and the use of logos. The site also allows businesses to register on the site and receive directed information on new opportunities as they arise.
