Recreation, Sports and Leisure 9(6): 16-18, 21
After five years what does the research show? Tracking the managed recreation industry
Based on 5 years of industry-wide research, an overview of the changing structure, economics, operations and personnel of the managed recreation industry in the USA is presented. Trends indicate an emphasis on multi-service offering as many amenities as possible, all year long, to people of all ages; the growing importance of marketing; increasing professionalism; recreational and fitness facilities in non-recreational establishments; and conservatism in budgeting.
