Marketing Research Professional Challenge- Vancouver Symphony

...Marketing Research Professional Challenge Executive Summary Research Objectives The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra conducted a survey to understand what musical selections would increase ticket sales. VSO management conducted the survey at a free concert. 656 out of 2,400 people responded. Goals Determine the musical preferences of non-subscribers and subscribers. Findings Musical Preferences of Subscribers & Non-subscribers (see Appendix A): Classical, twentieth century, pops or Canadian. The ratings for “choice of music appealed to me” increased by 17% from the first survey to the second. The survey did not ask what music the VSO doesn’t offer but attendees want to hear. Being able to hear classical music performed live and international performers was rated as most important by both groups. The purpose of the study is to determine what musical selections subscribers and non-subscribers want to hear in order to increase ticket sales. Survey results yielded no information as to what music preferences would increase ticket sales. But, findings initially indicated that the VSO should focus on ticket prices to increase ticket sales. For example, a cross tabulation of eight pairs of events (characterized by reputation of performer, seating arrangements, and single tickets prices) and subscriber information showed a preference for ticket prices between the range of $8 and $14 for both subscribers and non-subscribers. The original survey indicated......

...Assignment for Seminar 1, September 18, 2013 Brittany Barnes, 5408224 In the article, An urban metabolism and ecological footprint assessment of Metro Vancouver (2013), Moore, Kissinger, and Rees present extensive data regarding urban metabolism analysis (UMA) of residential consumption and ecological footprint analysis (EFA) of the Metro Vancouver region for the year 2006. The authors first collect Metro Vancouver’s urban metabolism data from local and provincial government, and provincially owned corporations and include: Metro Vancouver reports, Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority reports, Province of British Columbia reports, as well as BC Hydro reports (Moore et al, 2013, p. 54). The authors then collect Metro Vancouver’s ecological footprint estimates, in global average hectares (gha), of the ecosystem area required on a continuous basis by the region’s population to produce the products and carbon emissions in which it produces (p. 54). The third figure accompanying the article (p. 57), which summarizes the urban metabolism and ecological footprint of Metro Vancouver for 2006 (p. 56), indicates that water represents the largest material flow through Metro Vancouver of 424,860,000 m3, but has the smallest ecological footprint of 34,550 gha (p. 57). The results on figure three (p. 57) also display that food (1,753,000 tonnes) contributes the largest component to the ecological footprint of 4,514,400 gha (p. 57). The authors determine that Metro......

Included will be a description of the business and its stakeholders and give their relationship to the business, as well as the internal and external factors that affect the company and its employees, contractors and owners. DESCRPITION: In 2004 Jennifer and Tony Smith started Woodland Cab LLC with one car, a Chrysler Le Baron, in North Clark County as an LLC.

The company values describe the business, “We are not here to get bigger than our britches, we are here to serve the people and business of Clark County and surrounding areas.

Vancouver 2010 Olympics

...The desirability of Whistler Blackcomb and Sochi as winter and summer destination resorts. We can think of Whistler Blackcomb and Sochi as winter and summer destination resorts by having in our mind one historical event for the year 2010 when the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games started in the westernmost province of British Columbia and recently launched the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. It makes sense to organize Olympic Games on the territories that can serve as winter and summer destination resorts. Why? To answer this question let’s consider the geography and all necessary infrastructures needed and designed to carry out the whole bunch of sport venues. Host country’s Organizing Committees are responsible for installing necessary infrastructures for organizing the Olympic Games such as Olympic Villages, air-supported domes, stadiums, training ice rinks and other facilities for competing during the games. It also assists with medical services, lodging facilities, means of transportation for the athletes and officials. For organizing Winter Olympic Games which includes alpine skiing, luge, ski jumping host county’s geography should provide mountain chains, and for Summer Olympics that include canoe sprint, canoe slalom or sailing, geographically the country needs ocean, seas and lakes. As it is mentioned in our case, Whistler is a resort town with nearly 10,000 permanent residents and has two million visitors annually. It served as the designated site of Olympic events. To......

Kamloops and Vancouver

...Student: Oleg Pochikaev T00057479 Kamloops and Vancouver Although Vancouver and Kamloops quite different cities, especially compare populations in these cities, I would like to compare these two amazing place for living. Kamloops is a very comfortable place to live, because you can travel from one part of city to another just for one hour. Size of the city is not so big and there are no traffic jams on the roads. This is also very important for you if you live in one district of the city and work in another part. There are a lot of malls and different stores in each district of the city, which is very important if you need something to buy right now and don’t want to spend almost whole day to stay in the traffic jam, which is very common thing for the big cities. Despite the fact that there is no underground in Kamloops, you have an opportunity to use awesome buses to reach each part of the city you need very quickly. You can buy awesome house in Kamloops with brilliant scenery and spend not so huge amount of money as in the big cities. On the other hand, you have an amazing chance to be closer to brilliant Canadian nature which surrounds Kamloops. There are lots of parks, lakes, mountains and hills around and in the city. Also well-known in British Columbia Sun Peaks resort is situated just 50 kilometers from Kamloops. Nature gives us additional energy in our life, support our mental activities and helps us stay calm, even if we have lots of stress every day. There is......

History Essay

...History Assignment Name of Student Institution affiliation HISTORY ASSIGNMENT Immigrant laborers are unskilled and casual workers who move about in a systematic manner from one region to another with the intention of providing their services on a seasonal and temporary basis. Chinese immigrant laborers in Vancouver faced challenges during their immigration to Vancouver. They faced victimization at the hands of vigorous native white communities. However, this has changed with time, and today some governments have apologized for the misdeeds that were racially motivated. Unique Historical Conditions and Experience of Chinese Immigrant Laborers in Vancouver On 12 August 1907, the Asiatic Exclusion League was formed in Vancouver with the aim of protesting against the continued immigration from Japan, China and Korea. The Asiatic Exclusion league was backed by a labor organization named the Knights of labor. The members agreed to the idea of holding a mass meeting to protest the increased immigration, and they had the backing of religious leaders as well as businesses (Barnholden, 2007). According to reports, a young boy hit the window of a store belonging to a Chinese merchant, leading to riots. The Chinese were caught off guard, and they could only set up barricades and lock their doors, as a way of protecting themselves. However, the Japanese were prepared since they had bought weapons after holding a meeting the previous day. The riots lasted......

Expository Essay on Multiculturalism

...Multiculturalism in Vancouver Being one of the most integrated cities in the world, Vancouver does not fail to attract those abroad into joining such a rich community. The city consists of such diverse groups that racial norms have become only a small part of identification in Vancouver. Multiculturalism in Vancouver is not just about different racial groups living together in one city, but about the ability to accept the entire population as a “whole,” under the same culture. The search for a median of intersecting lifestyles and behaviors gives Vancouver’s citizens countless opportunities in learning various customs and histories of multiple countries. Vancouver’s mission statements being “to make sure that all of our citizens – regardless of background – have complete access to civic services, and live free of prejudice and discrimination” allows all it’s citizens to feel safe and accepted into the community. I’m lucky to be born with grandparents who had the chance to start a new life oversees, away from all the high paced labour work. Coming from a family of Taiwanese descent who were early immigrants of Vancouver on my father’s side, my family was extremely poor and was found unable to support themselves countless times. As time passed, my father and uncle were able to further explore the Greater Vancouver area and had met other fellow Taiwanese in the community. Gradually, the amount of Asians started to increase and suddenly, being unable to speak fluent...

Econ 312 Midterm Exam Solution All Possible Questions

...cities, Victoria and Vancouver. Utility per worker curves are given for each city in the diagram below, as are current (mythical) populations. Suppose that the city of Victoria pursues an innovative traffic management program that leads to shorter commutes which increases the quality of life for its residents. There is no policy change in Vancouver. Assume the utility per worker curve for Victoria remains below that of Vancouver after the policy change. Using the diagram below, clearly illustrate the shift in equilibrium populations in each city that results from the policy change. Clearly denote the pattern of migration that will occur between the two cities. Clearly label the new equilibrium population in each city and the new equilibrium utility per worker. Assume that there are no other places to live in the region, and that migration can only occur between the two cities (people cannot leave or join the region) Only the utility per worker curve for Victoria will shift, and it shifts up. Overnight, utility in Victoria rises from u to u’, while utility in Vancouver remains at u. This puts us out of equilibrium, so people begin migrating from Vancouver to Victoria. People 5 move out of Vancouver and into Victoria, driving utility up in Vancouver and down in Victoria (since each city is on the downward sloping side of its utility curve). We reach equilibrium where utility is equalized across both cities again, at u”. Note that the out-migration from Vancouver should......

...cities around the world. One of the best cities is Vancouver, and another one is Seoul. Vancouver and Seoul have large populations and high level of living standard, and they are well-known cities in the world. People who live in both cities have different or similar experiences based on climate, lifestyle, culture and social systems. Firstly, one of the similarities between Vancouver and Seoul is the climate, although Seoul is colder than Vancouver in winter. It means people can experience all four seasons which are spring, summer, autumn, and winter, in both cities. For this reason, residents in both cities can enjoy similar activities in each season. For example, when I lived in Seoul, I usually went hiking and swimming during the summer and went skiing and skating every winter. In Vancouver, hiking, climbing, swimming and skiing are popular activities regardless of age or gender. Moreover, Vancouver and Seoul are one of the main cities in both countries. They both have good transportation, many job opportunities and lots of facilities such as schools, hospitals, banks and markets. These advantages make the cities more convenient. Thus, many people love both cities. Secondly, however, Vancouver and Seoul are different in many ways, especially culture and welfare systems. Most people who live in Seoul are residents of South Korea. On the other hand, people who live in Vancouver are immigrants. Because of this, residents in Vancouver can experience multiple cultures such......

Earthquakes to Tsunamis

...scientists at the Geological Survey of Canada stated that there are “approximately 1000 earthquakes each year in western Canada” (Lyons, 2013). The most seismic earthquakes happen on the shore of Vancouver Island. Recently there have been many fault lines discovered in British Columbia that could lead to very dangerous natural disasters. Looking back at the history of the fault lines, specific complications, and what could happen next in the future, we will be well informed of the reasons for geological faults as we compare data and realize what is to come. The earliest known earthquake to be recorded that happened on the west coast of Canada happened in the M9 Cascadia Subduction Zone. On January 26, 1700 a fault line running through undersea Cascadia “ruptured along a 1000 km length, from mid Vancouver Island to northern California in a great earthquake” (The M9 Cascadia, 2013). This created a colossal amount of damage and a huge tsunami was formed as well which went across the Pacific Ocean. On the Richter Magnitude Scale, the M9 earthquake was a 9 which meant that there was great damage to buildings, near to total destruction, and many unfortunate casualties. On December 14, 1872, an earthquake in Washington caused a shock which affected Seattle, Portland, Victoria, and Vancouver. Its magnitude was at 7.4 which caused a few buildings to collapse and felt across great distances. The Puget Sound fault and Seattle fault were two of the main faults involved. For a long......

Vancouver Island

...Vancouver Island is simply one of the most beautiful places on earth. Home to majestic mountains, lush temperate rainforests, and miles of breathtaking coastline, its natural beauty can be found almost anywhere you look. In addition to its scenic beauty, Vancouver Island possesses a variety of wildlife including numerous species of birds, seals, killer whales, bears, otters and a fantastic selection of butterflies. With so much to choose from, photographers visiting Vancouver Island would do well to have a plan in mind so that they get the most out of their trip. When And Where To Go So diverse are the opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography on Vancouver Island that it is impossible to capture everything in a single trip, or a single lifetime for that matter. I would recommend prioritizing the features that drew you to Vancouver Island before focusing on capturing these images. I would also recommend visiting during the generally dryer, warmer, and sunnier months of April through October. The following are a few of my favorite destinations on Vancouver Island for nature photography: Scenic If you are looking for a great example of a lush, temperate rainforest there are few places better than Goldstream Provincial Park, located just 20 minutes from Victoria. An alternate option for those travelers who are feeling a bit more adventurous is to make the four-hour drive to the cozy town of Tofino, where miles of sandy beaches meet with towering......

Vancouver Riot 2011

...Nathan Kotylak: Individual Error or Mob Mistake? A look at the 2011 Vancouver Riot On March 13th 1964 Kitty Genovese was murdered outside her apartment as more than ten residents in the apartments above watched her die and did nothing. In the late thirties and early forties Adolf Hitler convinced men and women to effectively exterminate two thirds of the European Jewish population. On June 15th 2011, over 100 people were arrested for disorderly conduct by fighting, looting, and even burning police cars after the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, most notably Nathan Kotylak, seventeen year old student from Maple Ridge. What do these three situations have in common? They all involve the mob mentality in both an active and passive sense. While Kitty Genovese was being murdered, many residents in the apartments above displayed the bystander effect and followed Cialdini’s principle of social proof. They all followed the lead of similar others and did nothing to address the situation in hopes that someone else would deal with it. Germany ruled by Hitler was the most extreme example of social proof and also showcased the demonstrative tactics used by Hitler to control the minds of citizens. The Vancouver Riot followed a similar path to both scenarios- like those who watch Kitty be stabbed to death over a 30 minute time span, some Vancouverites did nothing. Like the thousands of Hitler followers who killed innocent civilians, some acted in ways that went against their moral and ethical......

...highly depends on the use of the internet to find out information that will help them make informed decisions about everything from finding a recipe to finding out information about a person or a place of business. Educating one’s self about the services available from a medical group is no exception. In Southwest Washington State, there is a large medical group that is called Vancouver Clinic. There are a wide range of services that are available through them and also a number of physicians for a person to choose from and entrust with their care. Like most larger medical groups, Vancouver Clinic has a webpage on the internet where people can look up information that they may need about doctors, services, and even be able to access personal medical records online. When you open The Vancouver Clinic website, which can be found at, the first thing that you will see are options for looking up the information for the different locations, the providers, and the specialties available and which location offers them. Compared to some areas in the nation, the specialties that are listed for Vancouver Clinic are extensive. A list of them can be found on the website and when exploring through each of the categories, it will give you information about what the department offers as well as which of the locations offers those services. This list of specialty services starts with allergy/ immunology and goes all the way down to urology. For example, if I was looking for a new......

Vancouver Style

...References/Bibliography Vancouver Style “How-to” guide NOTE: • • • • A list of references contains details only of those works cited in the text. A bibliography lists sources not cited in the text but which are relevant to the subject and were used for background reading. Before you compile your bibliography/reference list check with your lecturer/tutor for the bibliographic style preferred by the Academic Department. A citation is an acknowledgement in your text of references that support your work. It is in the form of a number that correlates with a source in your reference list. • • • • • • There are many ways of setting out bibliographies and reference lists. The following are examples of one style – the Vancouver System. It is commonly used in medical and scientific journals. Your reference list should identify references cited (eg. book, journal article, pamphlet, internet site, cassette tape or film) in sufficient detail so that others may locate and consult your references. Your reference list should appear at the end of your essay/report with the entries listed numerically and in the same order that they have been cited in the text. If you have cited sources from the Internet, these should be in your reference list. The bibliography is a separate list from the reference list and should be arranged alphabetically by author or title (where no author is given) in the Vancouver Style. Punctuation marks and spaces in the reference list and citations are......
