Studies and Consultancy

Organising the event is just part of the process. We carry out research, examine feasibility and prepare business plans, budgets and bid documents where necessary. All of this is required to deliver high profile sporting events that feature in international sporting calendars.

Where events are eligible for partnership funding with public funding agencies we work with them to deliver the anticipated results and satisfy all of their rigorous financial controls.

Our unrivalled background in mountain biking has put us at the forefront of specialised consultancy work relating to this growing sport and leisure activity. On our own, or with other consultants, we have been involved in a number of feasibility studies as well as advising Organisation Committees in China.

We also carry out a wide range of statistical research, based on survey data that we collect and analysis of research produced by others.
