The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is supporting a local businessman in his bid to attract adventure-seeking tourists to the Island.
Extreme sports and adventure experiences are becoming increasingly popular and the Isle of Man’s reputation as a destination providing those pastimes continues to grow.
Keirron Tastagh, of Manx business Adventurous Experiences, organises the Adventure Race in June and the Sea Kayak Symposium in September. Thanks to support from the Steam Packet Company and the Department of Economic Development, Keirron is attending The Outdoors Show and the Adventure Show in London during January with the intention of attracting people to both annual events.
Keirron explained: ‘It’s important that we attend these shows and talk directly to those interested in taking part in adventure activities, as it also gives us the opportunity to show exactly what the Island has to offer. We’re extremely grateful to the Steam Packet Company for its assistance with our travel arrangements and also for helping to bring some of the world’s best coaches to the Island during our events.’
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘Both of these events are growing in popularity and the Steam Packet Company is pleased to be involved in their promotion and also by providing great value package deals to those taking part through Steam Packet Holidays.’
