Our Key Areas of Expertise
Strategy and Business Planning
TEAM offers extensive destination consulting experience in preparing and implementing tourism strategies and action plans; and in producing realistic, practical business plans for DMOs large and small; from national to local level; from metropolitan cities to rural regions.
Our tourism consultants have unrivalled experience in the planning, design and implementation of new tourism structures and the business planning of destination operations, in both the UK and abroad.
A common theme in much of TEAM's work is in the application of holistic ICT / e-business solutions across the full range of destination management and marketing activities.
TEAM offers destination consulting from an experienced team of marketing professionals, available to help DMOs to plan and implement their destination marketing, based on a thorough understanding of tourism markets. We think creatively, but are firmly grounded in the realities of the marketplace.
Research and Intelligence
TEAM offers the services of many professional researchers, experienced in undertaking, interpreting and disseminating research and in creating and distributing intelligence. We have a thorough understanding of both research techniques on the one hand, and the practical needs of destination professionals on the other - a key difference between TEAM and most other research providers.
TEAM is the most widely used consultancy in this area and has a wealth of experience and expertise, from overall strategy to guiding the design and management of new tourist information centres.
TEAM offers extensive experience and expertise in research, strategy and action-planning in this field, recognising that business tourism is a key strategic component in the market mix for any major destination.
Cultural and Heritage Tourism
Our destination consultants offer in-depth expertise relating to cultural and heritage projects, ranging in scope from management plans for specific heritage sites to exploring the impact and potential of cultural festivals.
Tourism and the Environment
TEAM is committed to tourism development that is truly sustainable and offers destination consulting services in sustainable tourism development and management that are integrated with market development.
