Manx2 spreads the word about the Island

Manx2.com is hosting a series of press trips from the United Kingdom, to boost coverage of what the Isle of Man has to offer.

The company recently flew in four journalists from the northwest of England for a packed sightseeing tour of the Island, which included a drive around the TT course and a look at the Claremont Hotel's new four-star facilities.

During the past weekend Manx2 welcomed a journalist from Business First, the official magazine of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, and there are plans for another northwest reporter to visit next month.

The press trips offer editorial coverage of the Island in a wide span of articles on radio, and in newspapers and magazines.
