Do you want to know the economic impact of a tourism development / event on your local economy?


The Research Solution can undertake a comprehensive study to quantify the impact that events and festivals have on an individual area.



PRIME, or Project Impact Evaluation, tells you the likely economic impact of a tourism project i.e. an event / festival, on your area and the surrounding region.  PRIME is the standard, nationally recognised and accepted approach to appraising past and anticipated economic impacts.


Whether it is a one off event, a new attraction or a marketing campaign, PRIME is able to estimate the number of jobs and income generated by the project.  This service provides an excellent tool for assisting with funding bids and to support planning applications, as well as a great source of PR for projects.


Major event impact studies already completed include:


  • 'The Value of V' - an economic impact assessment of the 2005 and 2006 V Festivals
  • 'Driving Regional Prosperity'- an evaluation of the 2004 British International Motor Show Live
  • 'Tourism beyond the Boundary' - an evaluation of the Trent Bridge Test Match between England and South Africa in 2003
