The Directors of the BC Construction Roundtable invite you and a guest to join them at the festive year end reception. As part of our series on The Vancouver Winter Olympics we are pleased to welcome Nancy Lee, Chief Operating Officer for Olympic Broadcasting Services Vancouver.
OBSV is a B.C. based subsidiary of the International Olympic Committee. OBSV produces the video and audio coverage for all Olympic sports, Opening and Closing Ceremonies and the medal presentations at the Vancouver 2010 Games. The unbiased footage is augmented by the international rights holding broadcasters which insert play-by-play commentators, studio hosts, network branding and then transmit the signals back to their home countries.
Over 100 international networks (encompassing radio, television and new media) will broadcast from the 2010 Games. And these networks employ over 5,000 people who will be coming to Vancouver to act as producers, technicians, and commentators for the 2010 Games coverage.
Nancy Lee will talk about the years of planning work leading up to the February 12th Opening Ceremonies as OBSV grows from a current staff of 100 to 2,200 during the Games. Prior to joining OBSV, Nancy was the Head of CBC Sports. Vancouver 2010 marks the 9th time Nancy will have worked at an Olympic Games.
The directors would like to thank all our loyal members and invite others to consider joining the organization in 2010. And a big thank you again to our reception sponsor.
