Shetland News becomes Host Port Supporter of The Tall Ships Races 2011

Local online news provider Shetland News has become a Host Port Supporter following an in-kind advertising deal with Shetland Tall Ships 2011 Ltd.

This support is worth over £2500 and will enable the local organising company to promote The Tall Ships Races 2011 in Lerwick and its key activities online to Shetland News’ readers. The Tall Ships Races are presented by Szczecin and organised by Sail Training International.

Partner in the Shetland News website, Hans Marter said, “The Tall Ships Races will be huge feel-good event for the isles and we were keen right from the outset to help the local organising committee. That’s why we offered advertising space to Shetland Tall Ships 2011 Ltd at a much reduced rate over a period of two years, promoting it worldwide on our site which has around 40,000 unique users every week of the year.”

Fiona Dally, the Project Manager for The Tall Ships Races- Lerwick said, “We are very grateful to Shetland News for this in-kind contribution. Shetland News attracts a loyal readership and it is important to us to have a visible presence on their site to encourage people to find out more about The Tall Ships Races which are visiting the isles in 483 days”.
