Success in Norway!

sarah BlogJust because the winters coming doesn’t mean we take our foot off the gas! Last weekend saw Topsail’s senior management decamp to Stavanger in Norway to take part in the Sail Training International Conference 2010.

Our MD Mark Tower was asked to present a paper on Corporate Hospitality to port organisations and ship managers on our recent experiences at Harlepool as a Host Port in the Tall Ships Races 2010. Our Senior Sales and Operations Coordinator, Sarah Pyatt, caught up with many of the Tall Ships community to discuss work past, present and future we have for them in the UK.

Mark commented “it was a very worthwhile trip, keeping Topsail’s profile high amongst this important international (29 nations) maritime community, developing ideas and opportunities with Tall Ships up to London 2012.”

All in all a great success rounded off, much to Sarah’s delight, with a cruise up the Fijords for a bit informal networking with fellow delegates. It may be tough times but we just wanted you to know she’s on the case 24/7 to get new cruise opportunities to the UK market!
