At Visitor Solutions we’re as passionate about sport and recreation as you are, and we pride ourselves on keeping your project moving. We harness this passion and bring inspiration and fresh thinking right from the start.

A significant proportion of our work now draws on our specialist sector experience and knowledge to help sporting organisations improve their capacity, capability and facilities.

We use the core skills below in an approach that is holistic and tailor-made to meet each client’s needs:

We undertake a robust needs analysis process which can include community consultation, geographic and demographic analysis, establishing sport and recreation trends and strategic alignment.


RESEARCH

We can undertake all your required sport and recreation research from large holistic studies, to a focus on a core area or topic.

Taking a facility network approach towards future planning and investment is critical. We can assist you with full network plans or specific tasks, such as current state analysis, gap analysis, prioritisation and recommendations for future provision.


STRATEGIC PLANNING

We work with sporting organisations to develop visionary, yet achievable, strategies. These are underpinned by robust evidence, monitoring and evaluation systems.


BUSINESS PLANNING

We can help determine the financial viability and sustainability of a proposed initiative. Including cash flow analysis, whole-of-life cost analysis and the identification of new opportunities.


FEASIBILITY STUDIES & BUSINESS CASES

Our objective, holistic advice helps to optimise and underpin investment decisions, greater financial scrutiny, facility development and better operational performance.
