DP Associates is a strategic leisure consultancy providing a multi disciplinary service to both leisure operators, investors and developers. Its creation by Duncan Phillips comes from over 30 years operational experience at the sharp end of the UK Theme Park sector seeing the industry develop from small beginnings in the early 1980s to a multi billion pound highly complex industry today. Our approach comes from a first hand understanding of the short and long term demands on today’s operators in an ever increasingly competitive world.

The range of services available for new and existing operators encompasses all areas from project visioning through to detailed masterplanning offering a complete solution to both operators and investors. Our wide field of expertise in the visitor theme park and entertainment sectors enables us to conceive and implement imaginative, entertaining and immersive solutions.

Non more than the visitor attractions sector is this true, at DP Associates we pride ourselves in knowing the customer as well as the client, to ensure our solutions are right for today, tomorrow and beyond.
