Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games

VANCOUVER, March 8 /CNW/ - Techneos announces that Tourism Whistler selected its mobile software to power market research studies during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

The Olympic Winter Games galvanized the attention of residents, regional and global spectators.

Tourism Whistler used Techneos' solution in concert with other research tools to access psychographic insights and gain timely information about global visitors' preferences, needs, moods and lifestyle during the Olympics. Research will continue during the Paralympic Winter Games.

Tourism Whistler studies marketplace trends, visitors' characteristics and gives strategic advice to its members, the many businesses at Whistler Resort. For four years, Techneos has been equipping Tourism Whistler with software for on-site research at Whistler Resort.
