About SMS Inc.

SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. is an experienced and focused sports research business servicing the sports facility, equipment & sports’ goods industry.

The organisation has been formed through a buy-out of the sports business of the IFM Sports group by JOHN BUSHELL, who was a director of IFM Sports Marketing Surveys and STEPHEN PROCTOR, the former owner of Sports Marketing Surveys Ltd which he took over in 1984.

SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. works alongside SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS USA which continues to be headed up by KEITH STOREY who is a long term associate of Stephen Proctor and former director in the UK of Sports Marketing Surveys Ltd. SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS USA works across the same business areas and has significant synergies with the new SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. organisation, and is owned by the directors with the S.G.M.A. (Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association of America) as a key minority shareholder.

SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. has been established with the full team from the IFM Sports group who have moved across with the new business ensuring continuity of customer service, sports goods knowledge and experience of the market place & sports research consultancy.

We provide a full research service primarily for sports equipment manufacturers, for federations, retailers and sports venue operators where the general public or members play their sport. Service, solutions and insights will be provided to all those interested in participation rates, equipment and facility usage, sports brand images, retailer & end-consumer satisfaction, operating costs and associated areas.
