A number of mainland suppliers are in St Mary’s over the next couple of days for this year’s Supply Scilly (Feb 21-22) event.

The trade, hospitality and business services show, held to showcase mainland goods and services to businesses on Scilly, looks set to be another success, with 25 suppliers – the biggest number ever – attending and exhibiting at the show, which this year is once again hosted by Tregarthen’s Hotel.

With free entry for all, businesses on Scilly are encouraged to attend and take advantage of the trade deals – and tastings – on offer. Exhibitors include many of the region’s leading catering suppliers and wholesalers.

Supply Scilly has once again been organised by the Islands’ Partnership in collaboration with Tregarthen’s Hotel. David Jackson, executive director at the Islands’ Partnership, said: “We’re delighted to be organising Supply Scilly again this year with the support of Tregarthen’s Hotel.

After last year’s fog-bound event, it’s great that the sun is shining on us this year and all the exhibitors have arrived. This pre-season event is a fantastic opportunity for businesses on Scilly to have dedicated access to many of the region’s leading suppliers. I’m sure that lots of good business will be done over the next two days.”

Supply Scilly takes place today from 9am-5pm, and tomorrow from 9am-4pm.
