IBP on the move!


We are very excited at IBP to be moving to our new offices at MediaCorp House, Hamilton as of Monday 1st February 2016.

The new offices are very well located for our customers and staff, just off Bothwell Road, Hamilton, next to the Hamilton Campus of the University of the West of Scotland and within a short walk of Hamilton West Railway Station, the town’s main public car parks and Hamilton Park racecourse.

As well as greatly improved office and meeting facilities, our new facility will also include an expanded, state-of-the-art telephone system that will allow us to grow our telephone interviewing capability and improve further the speed and service that we can provide to our telephone survey clients.

Please note of our new contact details, which will apply from 1st February 2016 onwards:

IBP Strategy and Research
MediaCorp House
2 Caird Park
Hamilton ML3 0EU
Telephone: 01698 532021

Please note, in particular, our new telephone number, which we have had to change due to the restrictions placed on this by our current business centre.

There will be no change to any email contact details and all of our new contact details and directions to the new offices have now been posted on the "Contact Us" section of this website.

For any clients working with us currently, please be assured that we have plans in place to ensure business continuity, including mail redirection, and that the move will not impact in any way on the delivery of current assignments. Our email system will be down from late on Friday 29th January but will be back up and running by the morning of February 1st at the latest. Should you need to contact anyone at IBP urgently over this period then please do not hesitate to contact me directly on 07846 270104.

Please do drop in to see us if you are in the area and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions at all on our impending move.

An Olympic Effort


2012 has already been a rich and varied year for the team at IBP. At the beginning of the year we were pleased to contribute to a feasibility study and business plan for the new Gilchrist Postgraduate Club at the University of Glasgow, which will now be opening later this year:

As ever, throughout the summer months our interviewing team has been undertaking economic impact interviews at some of the biggest and best visitor events in Scotland, including the Hopetoun House Horse Trials, Piping Live and the Speyside Whisky Festival. It was a particular privilege to have the opportunity to interview visitors to Glasgow for the recent Olympic football matches. Our visitor interviewing work is continuing into the autumn with significant visitor surveys in Perth and Kinross, Lanarkshire and West Lothian.

Most recently, we were pleased to have been appointed by East Dunbartonshire Council to facilitate an initial consultation process on the future of its primary school estate:

We have been privileged to work on a number of assignments for East Dunbartonshire Council and are looking forward to working with elected members, council officers and local communities on what we think will be a very challenging but rewarding assignment.

August update and interesting times


As August draws to a close, IBP is reflecting on a busy summer where our interviewers have delivered over 5,000 interviews at a huge range of iconic events in Scotland including the Tall Ships events in Greenock and Lerwick, T in the Park, the Blair Castle Horse Trials, the Touch Rugby World Cup, the Golden Oldies Hockey World Cup, the Merchant City Festival, the International Children’s Games, the British Pipe Band Championships and the British Art Show 7 (our interviewing team were particularly taken by the exhibit involving the park bench, a fire and a naked youth). We are also nearing the end of a programme of 2,500 interviews across Highland Perthshire for the Destination Management Organisation there. Interesting times.
