Event description


The Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce Visitor Economy Committee is hosting this event for a third year to encourage and develop the provision of ‘Excellent Visitor Information’ by all of us working in the Tourism Industry, across all service providers. Providing Excellent Visitor Information enables our visitors to get the most out of their time on this beautiful Island, which helps the industry to grow. The bedrock of the sector is the dedicated staff employed within the industry to help deliver that information. Are you up to date on the fantastic sights and sounds that are all within easy reach on the Island? If not you should come along! We also hope to raise the profile of the hospitality industry as a chosen career path and hope that the programme of informative and inspirational presentations will benefit all those who have a visitor/customer facing role in the industry and wish to;

  • Increase and update their knowledge of key information to help visitors enjoy their trip
  • Learn more about the impact and value of providing accurate information for visitors
  • Develop their skills and passion for the industry to help promote the ‘Visitor Economy’

Also a draw on the day for tickets to Island activities plus "Weekend in Blackpool including flights and hotel"

Guest speaker will be Kate Shane who is Head of Blackpool Cluster for Merlin Entertainments PLC (Blackpool Tower Eye, Circus & Ballroom)
