The Mission of Consorzio di Promozione Turistica di Padova


The "Consorzi di Promozione Turistica" operating in the Veneto region are associations that promote the territory and which are recognized by the government of the Veneto Region in compliance with regional law no. 33 of Nov. 4, 2002.

Their mission is to promote and to market tourist products related to the local territory.
These consortia gather operators in the tourism industry, public agencies, businesses that organize trade exhibitions, airport companies, entrepreneurs' associations, as well as non-profit associations and organizations that are mainly focussed on tourist activities.

The consortia are managed by professionals in the tourism industry, and form the operating arm that supports the regional authorities of the Veneto in their promotional activities, while launching independent tourist marketing initiatives to promote the resources and the excellences of the territory of this region.

Consorzio Promozione Turistica di Padova is a legal person recognized by the Veneto Regional Government; its mission is to promote and to market the tourist supply in the town of Padua and its county with the exception of the spa area, which is represented by the ad-hoc Consorzio Terme Euganee.

The Padua Consortium fosters tourist and commercial development of the territory of Padua and of its cultural, natural, food-and-wine heritage by producing information materials on paper and multi-media, educational tours, by taking part in trade shows in Italy and abroad, in workshops and events, and with the implementation of marketing projects with its partners.
Consorzio di Promozione Turistica di Padova was established in 1996 by a group of enterprises operating in the tourism industry, by public agencies and trade associations who agreed to pool the experiences of private and public organizations to promote the town of Padua and its county.

Given its institutional role, the Consorzio is the leading coordinator of the tourist promotional activities addressed to Padua and its county, and its marketing activities are multifaceted.

On the Internet, the Consortium has its official website at, which provides information on the tourist resources of the territory. Its commercial gateway, at, is structured as the marketplace of Padua tourism: it contains all the trade categories of the tourist chain that are members of the Consortium and offers online booking tools.
