2011: foundation of the Padua DMO Consortium
The Padua Convention & Visitors Bureau is founded by the Province of Padua and the Chamber of Commerce with the general aim of spreading the word about the city as a tourist and conference destination both at home and abroad, providing quality products, services and information, and conveying an attractive image of the destination to the market.
2012: the Municipality of Padua becomes a member
The Municipality of Padua becomes one of our public partners, and the group begins promoting Padua and the surrounding province as an ideal location for private tourism and as a venue for conferences and conventions.
2013: the PCB becomes operational
The Convention Bureau, the branch of the consortium responsible for conferences, begins operating through a network of private affiliates (local operators in the tourism sector) and an annual programme of commercial, marketing, web and communication initiatives aimed at promoting Padua and the province as a conference venue. The Bureau offers a series of services to affiliates and event organisers.
In 2019 the company structure expands
The Padua Convention & Visitors Bureau at the end of 2019 has seen an important transformation: in fact it now boasts among its members the Chamber of Commerce of Padua, Padova Hall Spa (Fiera di Padova), trade associations in the area, promotion consortia Tourism. The founding members of the Municipality and Province of Padua leave the Consortium, but a fruitful and continuous collaboration remains active
Padua is a perfect city to host conventions and events. Culture, history and art build the frame of an active city. We have one of the most prestigious and ancient universities in Europe, a medical center of excellence, many sports facilities and a wide network of companies, and many of them are operating on an international scale. In Padua the MICE sector (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) has notably grown and now has great development potentials, thanks also to the forthcoming construction of the Convention Center designed by Kengo Kuma, which will be important at an international level.
