LATEST NEWS FROM THE PRESS OFFICE – 25 NOVEMBER 2014

We continue to represent the Island at a host of media events, most recently World Travel Market which was staged at ExCel in London, between November 3rd and 6th.  The good news is that interest in domestic holidays appears to be as high as ever and the Island continues to hold the attention of the media, in particular walking, cycling and the great outdoors, plus the music heritage of the Island and the Julia Margaret bicentenary in 2015.

Changes to the media industry are continuing at a pace and it’s becoming increasingly important to keep adding to our flow of news stories that are sent worldwide to our full database of travel media and to all VisitBritain and VisitEngland contacts.   We would therefore be grateful if you could complete and return our “Publicity Form”, which will help us with our media enquiries, calls-for-content and prepare for new trends.
