Arenas & stadia
Arenas and stadia offer the chance to engage with both a business and consumer audience on a regular basis. Whether a new development, or an existing events venue with an already passionate fanbase, arenas and stadia provide public and private investors the chance to enhance the visitor experience, integrate products across the venue and reward staff and clients through money-can’t-buy experiences.
As significant capital investments, they require sound financial modelling to justify high expenditure built upon debt financing. The commercial potential of an arena or stadium will dictate the future success of the project and careful thought needs to go in at a planning stage.
Our team has experience of creating, marketing and selling commercial partnerships, from naming rights to hospitality experiences at some of the world’s most recognisable venues.
We can advise on the commercial potential, create the program or take it to market, as required.
Business districts & Economic cities
We work with large-scale business districts and new cities to develop bespoke investment, tenant and brand partnerships from an early stage of planning.
Recognising the scale and timelines of these projects, we put plans in place to secure long-term partnerships through the project lifecycle.
Our consultancy typically begins with an input into the design process, identifying the large-scale assets and provisioning where required, advising on the commercial potential and identifying investment opportunities for 3rd parties.
We can provide tailored brand packages that are marketed to the private sector, establishing long-term partnerships with key investors at an early stage.
Once mature, Rise provide event and activation services, bringing to life the development with activities and entertainment to generate energy and promote the destination. We also offer long-term asset management for the various revenue generating areas.
Exhibitions & Event venues
Purpose built sites are increasingly becoming the norm for large-scale exhibitions and events. Planned well in advance, these venues are connected to transport hubs and are self-contained areas beyond just exhibition space, providing hotel, F&B and utilities.
We advise these clients at an early design stage, to positively affect both the design and build process.
Our team works with procurement departments to understand where commercial partners can provide large-scale budget relief and value-in-kind. We also advise on the traditional assets, providing packaging, pricing and sales process support.
As an important consideration, we also provide consultancy on the end use of the venue, which requires careful thought at an early stage, to ensure a long-term legacy.
Master developers are faced with the same challenges on successful sale of the various plots as they are with their development.
Chiefly, these evolve from the requirement to control directly, or through a agency, an ever-growing operational budget for the management of the community. Asset revenue creates a buffer for both parties, while providing both financial incentives and opportunities to integrate new technology.
We understand many of the key challenges associated with developing community assets. For example, planning the commercialisation of retail requires an in-depth understanding of pedestrian/vehicular flow, whilst the clash of digital advertising with way-finding is a typical constraint of the community.
Our team works to find solutions that benefit all parties, whilst maintaining quality and a high standard throughout, generating income without over-commercialising communities.
