• Jackie Thomson, Orkney Islands Council:
"GTS has been providing us with STEAM reports for a number of years with data stretching back to 2006. The consistent methodology and data analysis is invaluable in helping us to monitor and report trends throughout the local industry as well as to benchmark against other local authority areas across the Highlands and Islands region and nationally. Reliable data such as this is central to our strategic planning and the development of associated tourism policies."

• Stephen O'Reilly, Cardiff Council:
"The City of Cardiff Council have been using the STEAM model since 1999. The data provided from the report is invaluable - this is shared to a number of parties from the Leader of the Council, Directors of service areas to partner organisations and students undertaking research. Equally so, if and when the need arises for further assistance interpreting the data and/or additional support Cathy and the Global Tourism Solutions team are extremely helpful and efficient in responding by and large within a working day, which is a first class service."

For many years David and the team have provided a prompt and reliable service and are always happy to help."
