SEFTON GROUP REPORTS OCCUPANCY GROWTH FOR 2014 SEASON

The Sefton Group says its 2014 occupancy levels have shown significant growth in the peak June to September period, with an overall increase of 4% compared with 2013.

The Group's results reflect the general improvement in visitor numbers highlighted by the Department of Economic Development in its recent news release on the subject. Since 2012 the Department, Sefton Group and other key parties representing the tourism and leisure sector have been working successfully together, through the Visitor Economy Strategic Group, to improve the marketing of the Island and to identify and promote new opportunities, particularly in the short-break holiday sector.

Brett Martin, Sefton Group Chief Executive, said: ‘Our occupancy improvements and the broader good news disclosed by the Department paints an encouraging picture of the visitor economy as a whole. From our point of view we're clearly delighted that our figures for both the number of rooms sold to date this year and the revenue generated, show good increases, particularly for the May to September period.'
