Economic Analysis

Hawkridge Entertainment Services provides a range of assessment and evaluation techniques to assist in decision making, project and policy development and appraisal.  We apply economics to a range of contexts including urban and regional development, strategic planning, market and need assessment, project evaluation and policy appraisal using analysis such as cost benefit analysis, multi-criteria analysis, economic impact and contribution assessment and feasibility analysis. We have extensive experience in providing assessment and evaluation services across a range of sectors including infrastructure, major projects and property developments to support and inform business cases.

There is an abundance of data and stats available, however the numbers are not necessarily the answer. It is the practical and applied analysis of the data that provides insights and creates value.  It is the story and the picture that the analysis creates that translates into an actual understanding of the current situation and helps to frame the future path. We make complex analysis easy to understand and usable to inform a wide variety of strategic, policy and investment decisions.

Through the applied and practical use of economics and financial analysis, we provide clear insights and help solve our clients’ unique problems.

Economic Impact

Economic impacts highlight the monetary benefits that a development, program, place or activity can have on a community. Using operating data, we can calculate the impact that your existing venue has on a local or regional economy. Using visitor estimates and financial projections from the development of business strategy, we can derive the future impact of a proposed development or venue expansion. Over the useful life of an asset,  the return on investment is derived from its ability to generate visitor spending and retain resident income.

Common areas of analysis that we offer are:

  • Economic and Industry Analysis
  • Tourism and Visitation Analysis
  • Economic Impact Assessment
  • Population and Demographic Analysis
