As ever, we have had a great mix of projects over the last year. Some of these are highlighted below:
Looking at how best to inform the visitor
Making tourism more sustainable
We continue to promote a more sustainable approach to tourism development and management. At a policy level, we have been engaged by the Tourism Sustainability Council to develop and test guidance, in the form of a draft manual, for the introduction of an international accreditation service which can be applied to individual certification schemes for sustainable tourism enterprises.
Meeting visitor needs at attractions
On the strength of our work for the Heritage Lottery Fund (writing ‘Thinking about…. audience development’), we have also been involved in two successful HLF bid proposals at Fulham Palace and Lichfield Parks and are currently working with CBA on an ADP for Brooke Park in Derry, Northern Ireland.
