We supported the collaborative two-city partnership through initial consultation, then mentoring the Project Coordinator and growing partnership, followed by delivering training workshops. We managed market research and evaluation of programmes and market performance (uprating the research model along the way, with The Audience Agency), and provided analysis of digital assets, spotting where gaps in capacity, assets and content existed. A key component was in supporting the development of new product and programming, e.g. The Bristol and Bath Art Weekender.
With the cluster, we developed complementary product offers, targeted (near European) international markets in partnership with Bristol Airport, and uprated their digital skills, assets and capabilities as a destination, not just as individual culture, heritage and tourism operators.
We helped to secure £500,000 of Arts Council England funding for Bristol and Bath.
We created a joint visual identity and campaign, rolled out in international markets.
Bristol and Bath have now come together to form one joint Destination Management Organisation.
