The Leisure Handbook 2014 – celebrating the best of leisure


Leisure Management – the driving force behind the Leisure Handbook – is the fl agship magazine of Leisure Media and the only publication globally to cover the entire industry. This handbook is a celebration of its work and a reference guide for anyone working across all sectors of the leisure industry – from sport to spa, from health club to hospitality and from theme parks to museums and tourism. The Leisure Handbook is published in partnership with


Leisure Opportunities, the magazine, website and digital platform for recruitment, training and careers for the industry. We’ve curated the highlights from both magazines, added research and profi led teams and individuals who are bringing new energy and ideas into the industry. We aim to identify people who are innvoating and working passionately to grow the market. Our remit has always been to celebrate and share best practice, to identify trends and to serve up information to enable you to make decisions about direction. A recent report from the UK’s Offi ce of National Statistics found some people only use 15 per cent of their creative capacity at work, so there’s huge potential to unleash energy and initiative. We hope you enjoy this fi rst edition of the Leisure Handbook, that it get your creative juices fl owing and that you’ll be in touch if you’d like to contribute to the next edition in January 2015. Happy reading!
