Australia has a rich history of producing sports, media and entertainment talent. Australian artists, performers, entertainers and athletes have regularly made their mark on the international stage and we are privileged to host some iconic infrastructure and events in sports and entertainment.

Strong capabilities off-field and off-stage are essential for sustaining this success.  Successful sport, media and entertainment businesses require the management of diverse challenges in order to deliver a first class entertainment experience for a highly passionate and discerning audience. Few industries need to manage such a broad range of challenges with such a visible profile.

SPP has worked with organisations on a diverse range of Sports, Media and Entertainment projects to deliver sustainable success, including:

  • Strategy development
  • Benchmarking and identifying areas for improvement in business performance
  • Facilities and capital works planning
  • Customer, fan and community engagement and experience
  • Assessing new growth opportunities, developing new partnerships, business and services models, and business plans
  • Improving ticket yields, merchandise and retail sales, and corporate hospitality returns
  • Developing cost reduction programs and major process re-engineering
  • esports marketing entry strategy
  • esports growth strategy
