Isle of Wight holidays promoted at tourism event

Isle of Wight holidays could be set for a boost in popularity after it was announced that the island is to be represented at a major tourism event.

Ian Stephens, the chairman of the Isle of Wight Council, will travel to China for the International Mayor's Forum on Tourism, which takes place from June 10th-14th 2010.

The council stated that this will be an opportunity to promote Isle of Wight holidays to a global audience.

Mr Stephens stated that he is looking forward to representing the Isle of Wight as part of his civic duties, adding that the event is "prestigious".

He said: "It gives us a great opportunity to promote the Isle of Wight in a positive way throughout the world and showcase what the island has to offer."

This year will be the third International Mayor's Forum on Tourism, with around 100 representatives from outside China expected to attend the event.
