Why specifiers read leisure design & build
leisure design & build is the exciting magazine for key stakeholders, specifiers and decision makers involved in the planning, design and construction of all commercial leisure buildings. Published six times a year, each issue is packed with topical case studies and comment on key areas of design as well as the most innovative use of materials and technology across all types of commercial leisure schemes.
Covering the many sectors of the leisure industry, regular themes include hotels, spas, leisure centres, sports and stadia, mixed use schemes, swimming pools, heritage, museums and attractions. We cover both the internal and external environment, providing a valuable insight into design and specification.
The UK leisure industry is as broad as it is vibrant encompassing hotels, pubs and restaurants, travel and tourism, sport and attractions. Worth £117bn in revenue, the UK leisure sector accounts for 7.4 per cent of GDP and has grown five per cent annually since 2010. Leisure attracts one and a half times more discretionary spend as retail and is growing nearly twice as fast.1
A more confident UK leisure consumer has emerged in recent years, which has led to leisure spending growing at a faster pace than total consumer expenditure.2 Consumers are moving from product-consumption to experience-consumption resulting in the growing presence of leisure and hospitality in high streets and shopping centres.
The recent hosting of international sporting events, including the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 and Rugby Union World Cup in 2015 were major successes for the UK and the benefits were felt across the leisure sector, both in terms of investment in new facilities and the bottom line of leisure businesses. The UK is set to continue to benefit from such events as it prepares for the World Athletics Championship in 2017. Indeed, the value of inbound tourism is forecast to grow from more than £21bn in 2013 to £57bn by 20253, as the UK’s image continues to shine oversees.
The commercial leisure sector is an exciting and significant market. As the leading journal for the industry, leisure design & build is the ideal medium to reach this powerful sector.
