Welcome

Tourism Research & Marketing is an independent consultancy with a reputation for excellence and a consistent professional approach to solving our clients' problems. We produce studies and strategies which are sensitive to individual client needs and which offer practical assistance to realising their goals.

Philosophy

As an independent consultancy we are fortunate to be free from conflicts of interest and other obstacles that might distract us from our goal of giving the best possible advice exclusively tailored to the product and market of the client. As a relatively small organisation we offer flexibility - our staff fully appreciate the tourism dynamic and are consequently responsive to the shifts in client requirements which inevitably occur during the life of a project.

TRAM is a member of the ATLAS global network of over 300 universities and research institutes which offers an immediate entry into current conditions in a wide range of tourism and leisure markets and "on the spot" research resources.

Our most highly prized asset is the vast wealth of knowledge and experience of the tourism industry, which has been accrued by our senior partners. All our staff shares a genuine interest in the exciting development of the business tourism industry and this ethic is underlined and inspired by Bill Richards, the senior partner.
