Visit Isle of Man, an Executive Agency of the Department for Enterprise, is hosting a 'Campsite Information Presentation' for local campsite operators, in conjunction with the Isle of Man’s Fire Safety and Environmental Health teams.

The event is relevant for permanent campsite operators, as well as those who offer campsite facilities on a temporary basis during the TT and Festival of Motorcycling. 

The presentation will deliver essential advice for all campsite operators on the Isle of Man to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for visitors. Topics to be covered will include fire safety requirements, health and safety considerations for operating a campsite as well as useful advice and 'Hints and Tips' on how to improve the quality and service of a campsite. 

Rob Callister MHK, Political Member with responsibility for Visit Isle of Man and motorsport commented:

'The purpose of the event is to remind and inform campsite operators of the safety requirements and best practice required to operate the sites. Campsite operators, whether they are managing permanent or temporary business, have legal obligations they must adhere to and this session will help to explain what these are. Campsites play an important role within the tourism industry as we look to attract a wide range of visitors and this session will also help operators to see how they can deliver high service levels to our visitors.


'We would also like to encourage anyone thinking of operating a campsite (whether it is a commercial venture or a field they own) to attend so we can help them with the registration process and ensure all necessary approvals are in place.'


The presentation will take place at the Villa Marina (Promenade Suite) on Tuesday 16th April 2019 and starts at 6.00pm, with an anticipated finish time of 7.30pm. The event is free to attend and registration can be made at
