Event and wedding planner organizes two educational trips in Italy
Italy is celebrating its new start in tourism with two educational trips to Calabria (a southern region) and Tuscia (today’s Viterbo province in northern Lazio), specially designed for meetings and wedding planners as well as a selection of travel bloggers and specialist journalists.
The format, called Undiscovered Italy tours, is designed and created by Daniela Corti events under the auspices of enit, the national tourism association. Now in its second edition, it is being carried out in collaboration with the Canadian tour operator Susan Barone of Luxury Weddings Worldwide and InStyle Vacations – that confirms the international orientation of the initiative.
Operators, around 20 for each of the two trips, will visit locations and venues suitable for both weddings and international events, and learn personally about the local virtues of the field. You will be accommodated for three nights and four days in accommodations that are also suitable for weddings and will show the best of these geographic areas from different angles: the venues, the food and wine chain, the excellence and their main wedding services or major events. Many important sponsorships are given by local institutions, which confirms the enthusiasm with which these regions and provinces participate in the revitalization of Italian tourism.
