Techniquest - a popular science discovery centre in Cardiff - has produced a resource pack for GNVQ and A-level students who want to understand how a visitor attraction works in practice.
There are sections on marketing and promotion (including sponsorship and special exhibitions) and on customer service, with up-to-date advice on the use of IT. Further pages cver employment law and the design of information for potential visitors. Model press releases and replies to complaints contribute to the plausibility of the case study.
