JDP Publishing, 2003 - Sports & Recreation - 174 pages
When the International Olympic Committee members selected the western Canadian city of Vancouver and its mountain top sister Whistler as the sites of the 2010 Winter Olympics on July 2, 2003, it did so for many reasons. Geopolitical. A great bid plan. The cosmopolitan nature of the host city and the spectacular alpine views from the resort municipality of Whistler. But the main reason Vancouver was a spectacular choice was buried deep within the bid committee literature and will prove to be the penultimate reason why IOC bid evaluation committee chairman Gerhard Heiberg praised Vancouver's choice as a potential host of the best Olympics ever, ... Expo '86. The Vancouver Games: A Spectacular Choice recounts the bid victory and reasons why Vancouver will host a great Olympic Games. Based on the data from the World's Fair Decision Model project by JDP ECON. See why the outstanding experience of Vancouver with hosting Expo '86 will bode well for the Olympic movement in 2010.
