BITA (the British & Irish Trading Alliance) is a non-profit networking organisation that encourages its members to build relationships to generate business through educational and social events held in the UK, Ireland, and Isle of Man. The organisation has regional Chapters across the British Isles – its Isle of Man Chapter was launched in 2018.
Brendon Kenny, Chair of BITA’s Isle of Man Chapter, said: “This partnership has evolved from the social content and PR support MMC has provided for Isle of Man Chapter events this year, which have attracted business leaders from on and off-Island. Those events have included our very successful three-day event in May, and our garden party in August. Not only has the MMC team provided valuable advice and practical support, they also buy into BITA’s mission and vision. All of those qualities made MMC the stand-out agency for us, and the ideal choice to be our media partner.”
Craig Wolstencroft, our Founding Managing Director, commented: “BITA is doing excellent work, both here on the Island and across Ireland and the UK, to promote co-operation and generate new business. It’s a privilege to be able to play a part in helping to spread the word about the excellent work that’s being done by the BITA Isle of Man Chapter. The future success of the Island’s economy relies upon increasing the level of investment from the UK and beyond, and it’s in this crucial area where I see the great work that BITA does really adding value to the economy.”
Over the past 20 years in business we have built an international reputation as a digital-focused agency with specialist expertise in the finance and technology sectors. In addition to BITA’s IOM Chapter, we also represent several other leading trade organisations with a presence here on the Island, including Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce and AILO (Association of International Life Offices) which represents insurance companies and firms in supporting industries such as technology, fund management and service providers in Europe and the rest of the world. Earlier this year, we were also chosen by the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry to create a new visual identity and a digital first social media strategy for a targeted global marketing campaign to raise awareness of the Registry to support its growth strategy.
All of these partnerships means that we’re ready to get 2023 off to a flying start too!
