Islands’ Partnership To Organise Next Year’s Supply Scilly Event
The exhibition is a chance for mainland suppliers to present their offerings to Scilly’s tourism businesses under one roof.
It has been run by Tregarthen’s Hotel in previous years, but David Jackson from the Partnership says the planned changes at the hotel, taking place this winter, mean that’s not been possible.
The IP is running Scilly Business week again in March but it doesn’t seem that month will work for the trade fair.
Instead, they’re planning to run Supply Scilly on Wednesday and Thursday 24th and 25th February.
David say the only suitable date for attendees is during February, as many suppliers are already booked in to attend other exhibitions next winter.
He says they’ve provisionally booked the Town Hall as a fall back venue in case the hotel isn’t available.
David says the feedback from suppliers who have attended in the past is that they genuinely value the event. They’ve told him they would come over anyway and “do it off their own backs” if something wasn’t organised.
He says the Partnership is pleased to pick up the running of the event so it can take place again.
