• The Eden Project was a landmark project to commemorate the Millennium. It has been the most successful of such projects with its visitor numbers greatly exceeding the forecasts and has been the subject of a huge amount of media coverage.
  • Appointed by the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA), as part of a team led by Amion Consulting, Destination Consulting evaluated the impacts from SWRDA's £19.5 million investment in the Eden Project. The commission assessed the economic impact of the Eden Project since its outset in terms of employment creation, productivity, business creation and boosting confidence in Cornwall.
  • The findings will help SWRDA make judgements about the results that might be expected from investment in similar projects in the future.
