Improving the economicsof Tall Ships eventsAnni WaltherDirectorTall Ships Races Europe LtdToulon Provence Mediterranée

A new working groupHow to improve the economy of our events for both the participating vessels and thehost ports.Anni G. Walther– CEO Utzon Center, , Aalborg, Denmark - Director of Tall Ships RacesEurope

A lot of class A-ships and many other shipsThe vessels, the weather, the flow of spectators and the event formed a synthesis whichresulted in a unique atmosphereAalborg was a host port in 2010We hosted the TSR for the 3 rd time: 1999 -2004 – 2010After a TSR a host port will always ask as Aalborg didWHAT DOES AALBORG GAIN BY HOSTING THE TSR 2010? What are the key points?The Tall Ships Races was the event of the year for the citizens of Aalborg – providing thecity with renewed energy.A valuable cultural event with many activities on the waterfront for all people working,living and studying in Aalborg

Fantastic firework display – international standard!All generations were brought together in a unique communityAalborg and the TSR are really a fine constellationThe many receptions were a great opportunity for publicityactivities for companies and fine earnings for the shipsAalborg now exists on the world map of the many sailors whovisited usWhy have I underlined the economic and social value fromAalborg? Because if the cities shall continue being host ports itis really important that they feel “they get value for their

But we don’t have the answer so thereforewe have set upIf the STI or I could answer that question wewould not need to set up a working group.Ideas to reduce costs for the ports andimprove income for the ships are welcome.The same goes for the sponsors.But I also have a personal hope for a betterunderstanding among these 3 partners and abetter teamwork

A working group:Anni G. Walther, chairmanGwyn Brown, Commercial DirectorKnut Western, Chairman of TSREJohn Wadson (Bermuda) representing the STI board1 or 2 operators for Class A shipsPerhaps 1-2 additional persons with direct host portmanagement experience or a returning sponsor,The group can consult others, both within andoutside the STI

Purpose : To consider ways in which we can improve commercialaspects of the events we organize.The mission for the working group is: To consider and makerecommendation to the trustees, STI and TSRE/STI Boards onchanges of the events we organize toa) Make them more attractive to host ports, ships andsponsors andb) improve our defenses against competitive activity (egmaritime festivals, and others who may wish to getinto the Tall Ships Races business)

Plan of action:The working group will have our first meetingtomorrow.We will start with the purpose – the strategy -vision – the mission – a detailed plan of action.We will start to make a questionnaire to sendout when all members of the working grouphave had the possibility to comment on theproposal.

The questionnaires will be send to:•Selected port cities, e.g. the port cities from2009, 2010, 2011-2015 (to those who havebeen host ports earlier)•Perhaps in another version to all Class A andB ships and•to selected main sponsors from e.g. 5-6 portcities

The schedule: Sending out in December 2011with a time limit of one month until15 th January 2012January – March 2012: Processing of thereceived questionnaires.In connection with our next TSRE meeting,possibly in Copenhagen in April 2012, theworking group can hold a separate meetingand after this proceed or send our conclusionto the International Council.

I really hope that all people involved in SailTraining International can see thatTSR have to keep up and go aheadSo to members of the Tall Ships Race Family –please help our working group byGiving us all your fine ideas and other sorts ofinputAnswering questionsGiving comments to our future work
