Offering state-of-the-art, high definition audio-visual equipment with recording and live-streaming capabilities, this facility and DONOVAN's research expertise provide Edmonton with the most advanced equipment and knowledge required to capture crucial research information.

Not only for market researchers, this facility can be utilized by any organization looking to gain insights and opinions through public consultation. This includes businesses, government, researchers, marketers, and public engagement professionals looking to gain insight into their products, services, and ideas, all of which affect their bottom line.

"The true benefit from using DONOVAN's facility is that it is part of a fully integrated service that is turnkey," explains Michael Donovan, President and Chief Creative Officer of DONOVAN Creative.
