Sports, Events & Other Venues

CLEAR Associates can help think broader and explore options to provide a more stable base of attendance

Event Venues have inherent difficulties in providing day, week, and year round stable levels of attendance.  Key to resolving the puzzle is balancing target markets with activities and attractions that suit.  To simply rely on pricing has proven to be inadequate.  CLEAR Associates can help think broader and explore options to provide a more stable base of attendance and therefore revenues. 


Project examples:

Ski Resort, Adjara – Georgia: Confidential Client

The government of the autonomous province of Adjara wished to develop a ski-resort in its mountain range to stimulate the tourism economy in the area.  In order to achieve this goal masterplanners were commissioned to decide on a final location for the resort and its components.  Much of Margreet’s input centred around an assessment of the likely market for the resort, how this could change tourism to the area, how the tourism framework of Adjara needed to adept to ensure the resort would be as successful as possible and what the ideal component mix for the resort would be.  

Conference and Exhibition Hall, Ried – Austria: Confidential Client
