Business Planning

With our 25 years of experience running science festivals, operating schools outreach tours and creating science and technology based events, we are well placed to help you plan your activity. We can work with you on particular strands or assist with the creation of an entire business plan.

Members of the Edinburgh International Science Festival team can provide expert input so that a strong plan is developed quickly.

As part of building local support for your project we are happy to partner with you and advocate your project with your local stakeholders. Edinburgh International Science Festival has a strong international reputation and this can be of great value.

We can also help address the following issues:

Content choices What is the best mix of content to provide the experience you want for your visitors whether they are families, students or school children? How do you get the content to reflect local issues and interests?

Staffing models Who will be used to run the events and how will they be recruited, managed and trained?

 

Visitor circulation models What is the best way of getting the desired number of people through the events and, at busy times, how is the visitor flow regulated? How do front of house staff support this aspect of the event?

Production of the event What physical resources such as venues, power, transport etc. will be needed to stage the event?

Marketing and selling What are the best ways of communicating to prospective audiences about the benefits of the events you are staging and how do you sell to them?

Sponsorship relations How do you programme and adapt content to win the support of prospective sponsors?

Delivery timelines When does everything need to happen?

Budgets What will it cost to stage the events?
