Welcome to the Isle of Man Trade section – a new resource area to answer all your industry related questions.
Ever wondered what’s involved in setting up a new venture in the Isle of Man? Or where the best conference venues are on the Island? Well, here is the place to go to find all the relevant information needed to help you make informed choices.
The Department of Economic Development promotes a range of schemes and initiatives to encourage new businesses to start-up on the island and existing ones to invest in new technologies and working practices in order to be more efficient and competitive. You can find information on the financial assistance available here.
We are transparent about our marketing approaches, so take a look through our marketing toolkit and tourism strategies for further information. You can also find out how tourism affects our Island with these interesting statistics.
Also over on the trade site
you can find a link to the 2016 events calendar, packed full of events to tell your visitors about, either on your website, social media page or in print. You can also find a selection of printed literature that can be ordered.
What’s more, you’ll find plenty of guidance on visitor accommodation, cruise organisation and group travel planning – all of which can help you to provide a better experience to visitors to the Island during their stay.
Make sure you take a look to see if you qualify for our Taste Assurance Schemes which recognise and reward high levels of quality and service. Quality is a key driver of success for specific products, services and destinations with consumer expectations at a higher level than even before. You may also be interested in joining one of our Welcome Schemes to raise the profile of your business.
