Aberdeen City and Shire export survey launched


Aberdeen city Council and Aberdeenshire Council will be launching the 2010 Aberdeen City and Shire Export Survey reports at 6.30pm on Monday 27th June at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. IBP were commissioned to undertake this study on behalf of the Councils and the reports (one on the Energy sector and one on Non-Energy sectors) clearly highlight the growing importance of international trade to the Aberdeen City and Shire economy. We hope to see you at the launch.

IBP in the Sunday Post and on Radio Scotland


In what is a first for us, IBP Strategy and Research joined Oor Wullie and the Broons in the Sunday Post of 23rd January 2011. The occasion was a trailer for a major conference on "A Future from our Past", a conference of Scotland’s rural heritage attractions, which was the final stage of a major study on "Valuing Rural Heritage" conducted by IBP for Scottish Enterprise and a number of partner organisations during 2010. A number of conference attendees, including IBP's Callum Mackinnon, were interviewed at the conference (which took place on Thursday 27th October at the Cambo Estate near St. Andrews) for Radio Scotland's Out of Doors programme. For a limited time you can hear the coverage (about three minutes in) by clicking on the following link

IBP Strategy and Research Launches New Website


IBP is delighted to share our newly revamped website with our clients and partners (past, present and future). The new site provides details of our team and our successes as well as information on some of the more novel services that we provide. An often used feature of our old website was our handy Sample Size Calculator. This has been carried over to our new site and will be joined by other research tools that will be of real benefit to visitors to our site.
