Feasibility Studies and Business Plans

Eastern-Black-Sea-Turkey At the core of our tourism expertise is our ability to quickly and effectively assess the tourism business case. This requires access to the best market intelligence combined with financial planning expertise, two of the core strengths at the TOURISM COMPANY. Together the three partners have worked on feasibility assessments and business planning for tourism products and experiences in every category from events to attractions, from large resorts to B&B’s, from small remote Aboriginal owned and operated businesses to large global tour operators, and from retail to food service businesses.
