The main services on offer to affiliated facilities.
Once affiliated, members can access numerous services.

The Padua Convention Bureau supports local affiliates by increasing their visibility in the events market both in Italy and abroad. It helps them to generate business opportunities by implementing initiatives aimed at promoting Padua and the region and boosting its reputation as a brand name for quality events. This is achieved through participation in workshops and trade fairs, a constant media presence, fam trips and site inspections, and support for nominations put forward at national and international events.


First instalment in 2018: last few months of the year free for new affiliates.

For companies joining in autumn 2017, the last few months of the year will be free, with full access to all our services.


Use of the Padua Convention Bureau trademark

Every affiliate member can use the trademark of the Padua Convention Bureau and include it in their promotional materials, on their website and in their documentation as a guarantee of the quality of the services on offer.

Each member of the Padua Convention Bureau is listed along with photos, their main contact details and a data sheet with a description of the services offered by the supplier.
