Online PR News – 23-December-2011 – – The Stag Company has enjoyed a year in which staff numbers and turnover has increased three-fold on the previous year and Manchester and Marbella have been unveiled as the most popular destinations, in the UK and EU respectively, for 2011.
With 2011’s addition of a marketing division, the company attributes this exponential growth to the themed branded packages that allows customers to select pre-built weekends ‘off the rack’ to make booking a stag weekend as easy as possible.
Keith White, marketing manager for the company admits his surprise at Manchester’s status as the company’s top UK destination:
“Manchester has taken us all by surprise, we were expecting some of the south coast destinations like Brighton or Bournemouth to come out on top – maybe Newcastle at a push but when we crunched the numbers it was the Manchester stag do that won out.”
“We’ve had some great feedback on our Manchester stag weekends, the sheer variety on offer for music, clubbing and activities must be the reason for the popularity.”
Marbella was only launched as a stag weekend destination in April 2011 but it has already trumped the more establish Eastern European destinations to become The Stag Company’s most enquired and most booked destination. This has been less surprising with Marbella’s status as one of the tabloid newspaper’s most discuss places abroad, thanks to the popular ITV2 reality show The Only Way is Essex’s trip to the sun-drenched Costa Del Sol resort and the announcement that the England football team would stay there for a week before the European Championships in Poland/Ukraine.
“The Marbella stag do has got it all, not only do you have miles and miles of golden sands and the Mediterranean ocean but you also get some of the best nightlife around, meaning a bar crawl is possible while staying within a 100 metre radius.”
It remains to be seen which destinations will be popular in 2012 but with The Stag Company set to announce another 10 destinations over the world, Manchester and Marbella will do well to hold on to the crown of the king of stag do ideas.
