Why be a member?

There are many reasons why you should consider becoming a member of the Islands’ Partnership. Every penny of your membership goes towards funding the Islands’ Partnership in our role to market the islands as a fantastic visitor destination and to support you in making the best of your business. 

Our over-riding ambition is to improve, enhance and extend Scilly’s tourism and visitor economy. We cannot do with this without members’ support and funding.  It is therefore important for all businesses on Scilly, whether directly or indirectly benefitting from tourism, to support the IP; after all just about every business benefits from the IP’s work and the visitors coming to the islands. We also encourage mainland-based companies who do business on Scilly to help our cause too.

As a member, you are part of an influential community digging deep to secure the future of Scilly’s tourism economy. And we are very grateful for your support. As a thank you, we work hard to reciprocate your generosity with a list of members’ benefits. If you would like to offer support in any way to your fellow members, please do let us know.

We also offer preferential treatment to all IP members – for example, free or reduced rates for business training, better advertising rates in the Tourist Information Centre, and first port of call requests for any requirements such as catering / accommodation / venues / transport or tours at IP-led events (Walk Scilly, Taste, Otillo, Islands’ Regatta, Scilly Business Week etc).  And of course, we only ever steer journalists and media towards IP members during press and media trips (including hotels; trips and tours; cafes and restaurants etc).
