More than £1million contributed to Manx economy by Autumn visitors

Island hosts multiple local and international events over Sept and Oct

An estimated 3,000 visitors contributed more than £1million to the Isle of Man economy over September and October.

The success has come from, what government is calling, an enhanced Autumn programme of festivals.

Sponsored by Visit IOM, the island played host to multiple events both local and international, including the likes of the IOM Festival of Choirs, the International Professional Pool Tournament, which was streamed live by BBC Sport, and the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss tournament - a ten day contest that brought in more than £300,000 in visitor spend.

For its Tourist Event Development scheme, Visit Isle of Man is looking for new, innovative events to support.
