Spas and the Euganean Hills are the star for a weekend
The Padua DMO Tourism Consortium has organised a weekend for conference industry professionals to promote the organisation of events in the region.
On 25th and 26th November, the Padua DMO Tourism Consortium will host an event titled “Spas and the Euganean Hills as a MICE Destination”. This is a two-day event (see the attached programme) for conference industry professionals and event organisers. They will participate in a "business-to-business" workshop with conference industry operators based in the Padua area. They will spend two days exploring the province, with a particular focus on the spa towns of Abano and Montegrotto Terme and the Hills, in order to identify the best locations for future meetings and events.
“By forging this direct relationship between “buyers” (those looking for event organisation solutions) and “exhibitors” (those offering services and hospitality in the Padua area), we are certain that opportunities will arise for Padua to host major events, just as they have done in the past”, states the President of the Padua DMO Tourism Consortium, Flavio Rodeghiero.
The upcoming event is now in its fourth edition, following the success of the previous editions held at the AC Hotel in Padua in 2016, at the Four Points by Sheraton in Padua in 2015, and at the Radisson Blu Resort in Terme di Galzignano in 2014. Several major companies and selected agencies from northern Italy have already confirmed that they will be attending the planned meetings. Among others, the attendees will include Deutsche Bank, BT, Cassa Lombarda SPA, Puma Italia, and Gattinoni (full list attached).
The event will be held at the Panoramic Hotel Plaza in Abano Terme; Saturday will be dedicated to business-to-business meetings, while a tour will be held on Sunday so that attendees can explore the area. The group will be in Arquà Petrarca, with a visit to an olive oil mill, in Baone, with a visit to a winery, and at San Pelagio Castle, with a visit to the Aeronautical Museum.
