Sustainable Destination Development Plans and Activity Tourism

Activity tourism destination feasibility study

Across the UK we have worked on a range of sustainable destination development projects.   Projects can be for new emerging destinations or established destinations, such as coastal resorts, which need to enhance their performance or respond to changing market conditions.   Over the last few years we have been working with clients to prepare sustainable destination development plans with a focus on addressing the challenges posed by the climate and biodiversity emergencies alongside balancing the need for economic development and the needs of host communities.

We also have a particular expertise in developing destination management plans for the adventure and activity tourism sectors.  The availability of a strong activity or adventure product can help to build the average length of stay of holiday trips and increase the average spend per trip.  Activity tourism offers opportunities for local tourism businesses to grow – from accommodation providers through to specialist service providers (such as mountain biking centres), catering and retail businesses.

With our sister companies experience of managing a range of tourism businesses including a watersport destination, heritage centre, visitor attractions and a hotel we bring a strong commercial realism to the preparation of sustainable destination management plans.
