Panorama Group and Andy Grant have joined forces to create a new company providing global
resort and entertainment development services.

Focusing on the creation of all-in-one tourism destinations, the new entity – called Grant Leisure Inc (Texas) – will aim to offer "in-depth and complete services" across every segment of the leisure destination sector.

Through the partnership, Grant Leisure will be able to provide project management on a broader scale – from financing and development of destinations, as well as planning and construction of hotels, resorts, entertainment centres and casinos.

Support services will include market studies, land planning, architecture and engineering.

Grant Leisure will also be able to tap into Panorama's full range of financial products, from equity, debt and "out-of-the-box thinking", through a Panorama Company, Panorama Capital Inc.

Andy Grant said: "In our experience of 40 years in the business, Panorama Group is the best firm we have ever worked with.

"Our experience fills the entertainment needs for Panorama's resort development. We've worked all over the world and now 150 million people a year visit the attractions we helped create."

Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, and with offices worldwide, Panorama Group specialises in resort, hotel and residential developments, working in more than 75 countries.

Andy Grant's organisation was founded in the UK more than 40 years ago and is currently based in Santa Barbara, California, US. It is a multi-attraction, entertainment, resort and casino consulting firm, with a presence in the field of outdoor entertainment.

Williston Clover, founder and president of Panorama Group, said: "I've known and worked with Andy Grant for over 30 years, and we're very grateful to have his level of knowledge and expertise associated with the Panorama Group.

"Andy is the definitive expert in three fields: historic property renovation and operation, zoos and animal display areas, theme parks and entertainment. The detailed expertise in these disciplines will be a great addition to the offering made by Panorama."

​​Panorama and Grant have ongoing projects in Mexico, Costa Rica, The Bahamas, and Bermuda.
