Around the Rings Launches First Online Version of Ultimate Insider's Guide; Vancouver is Sixth Edition

    ATLANTA, Feb. 12 /CNW/ -- One year out from the beginning of the 2010
Winter Olympics in British Columbia, Around the Rings has launched its first
online edition of The Ultimate Insider's Guide:

    Content will be free to all users for the first 30 days.

    The guide includes contact details for businesses and organizations with
a stake in next year's Games. These range from the IOC to worldwide sponsors
to government offices, along with restaurant and entertainment

    "Previous editions were always printed a few days before the Opening
Ceremony so that the journalists and high-level visitors who used them had the
most current information possible," said ATR editor Ed Hula. "This time, we
wanted to make the information available for a longer period.  Instead of a
shelf-life of just a few weeks, this content will be available for one full
year.  It will be updated through March 2010, when the Paralympics conclude. "

    The guide is divided into six chapters: Vancouver Games, Olympia,
Business, Media, Government and Fun, Food and Nightlife.

    Vancouver Games will include executives and media contacts; Olympia will
include IOC contacts as well as upcoming host cities, while Fun, Food and
Nightlife features restaurants and other attractions that have been personally
reviewed by ATR staff.

    Vancouver-area businesses can still be a part of the Vancouver Insider's
Guide.  Listings are free. Submissions should include business name; contact
person; telephone; website; description of the business.  Send to

    The guide will be available free of charge to all Web site visitors for
the first 30 days.  After that, some information will be available only to ATR
subscribers or will be available for purchase.

    The Vancouver Games run Feb. 12-28, 2010. The Paralympics are March 12-21.
