Councils must choose the most appropriate procurement route

by Chris Marriott

The message that local authorities can make big savings by outsourcing the management of their leisure facilities has been received loud and clear. Activity in the leisure outsourcing market has increased markedly since last year; so much so that it seems appropriate to continue with the theme. [more...]

Find new models

by Liz Terry

The global recession has driven operators to look further afield for growth, prompting them to be more creative in identifying development and partnership opportunities. The recession has also inspired operators to be more outward-looking in their approach and we're seeing an acceleration in the number of projects that involve international collaboration. [more...]

Meeting visitor expectations

by Hans Gubbels

Visitor expectations used to be simple. A zoo was somewhere to watch animals and discover which part of the world they originated from; a theme park was a place where you had to be courageous enough to be exposed to unknown forces; and a museum was there to learn about heritage or see art.

One brand sees industry growth despite economic challenges

by Aleatha Ezra

If you want to gauge what 2010 meant for the amusement and waterpark industries in Europe and beyond, look no further than a recent report from Merlin Entertainments. [more...]

The Importance of Accreditation

by Linda Cendes

Rise up to the challenging times

by Adrian Mahon

The UK is facing increased taxation and higher unemployment following cutbacks in national and local Government expenditure. And, to cap it all, 'stagflation' - high levels of inflation coupled with an economy which showed signs of a slowdown in the last quarter. [more...]

Synergies of sporting success

by Liz Terry

Major sporting events have become big business in the UK over the last 15 years. We're now bidding for world championships across a wide range of sports, while the momentum continues to build for the London 2012 Olympics and the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. [more...]

A conflict of use at the Olympic Stadium

by John Goodbody

So we've ended up with an Olympic Stadium that, after the Games, is not ideal for football, nor athletics; or Leyton Orient, certainly not for Tottenham Hotspur and probably not even for the local residents of Newham. [more...]

Seize the day

by Kate Cracknell

Political, social and economic changes are presenting the health and fitness industry with a new set of challenges - not only how to address issues such as obesity and an ageing population, but also the broader question of how to align ourselves more closely with both the medical sector and governmental agendas. But with all of these challenges comes huge opportunity. [more...]

Seduced by beauty

by Liz Terry

The beauty market has hit the headlines recently, with operators announcing record profits and growth. According to SRI's 2010 report, Spas & the Global Wellness Market: Synergies & Opportunities it represents a US$679bn (E501bn, £424bn) market annually. [more...]

Will 'nudging' work?

by Kate Cracknell

Happy 30th birthday

by Liz Terry

Driven to change

by Liz Terry

If you look back four years, the consensus across the fitness industry was that it was time for a change - things had got a little boring.
