In partnership with Yellow Railroad Consulting, and with plenty of island-hopping to fully understand the subtly diverse offer across the archipelago, we developed the islands’ first comprehensive destination management plan – targeting a step change based on value and not just volume for its established and emerging domestic and international markets. The final Plan set out a strong case for change with a new direction for how the visitor economy of the islands could be developed to sustain the islands’ natural, cultural and visitor economy.
In 2017, following a successful bid to Arts Council England, the Islands’ Partnership was selected to become one of 30 national Cultural Destinations projects, supporting the visitor economy by forging links between the culture and tourism sectors. Projects included Creative Scilly Festival, Walking Stories and Artist Residencies.
