Tourism on the Isle of Wight: Episode 39

Visit Isle of Wight

This weeks' episode is a bit different to the normal episodes in that we are focusing on Visit Isle of Wight the Islands tourism organisation providing a central strategic approach to promoting the Isle of Wight.

With the withdrawal of funding from the Isle of Wight Council, Visit Isle of Wight is under threat and they are making a bid for Destination Business Improvement District status.
