This week we held an ‘Open Day’ for local Isle of Wight tourism focussed businesses. We thought this would be a great opportunity to get some of the best local businesses to come down, see what we do and make some new friends!
We put on a selection of activities throughout the day that businesses could sign up to at both out Tapnell Farm and Freshwater Bay sites (Archery, Axe Throwing, Mountain Boarding, Kayaking & MegaSUP!). Archie (our youngest team member) was also wonderful as our very own Barista!

The day was a great success, we had sign ups from over 20 island businesses ranging from local accommodation providers to cafes. Everyone had an awesome time and we’ve included a few snippets of feedback below.
Some of our lovely team!

We felt this was a great opportunity to get likeminded businesses together, have some fun and hopefully create some great partnerships going forward that will enable locals and visitors alike to make the most of the best IOW Experiences!
We will certainly be running an other event at some point in the future. If you would like to attend, or know someone who may, please register your interest here.
