go2 was created by the British Columbia tourism industry in Canada as an independent association to assist the sector to recruit, retain and train employees. Go2 played a key role in recruiting and training staff to work at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

2010 Legacies Now is working with over 4,000 organisations to find innovative ways to see communities create lasting legacies from the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and beyond. The workshop will have a particular focus on accessibility and legacies learned from Vancouver relevant to the hospitality and tourism sector.

The experience of both organisations will prove invaluable to tourism bodies, local and regional government, and businesses looking to support their preparations for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by hearing first-hand from Canadian organisations closely involved with the Vancouver Games.
