We are convinced that the tourist development of an area is strictly linked to the ability of the professionals working in the area to create a team, and we are also convinced that everyone of us should make their contribution. The members of the Consortium share this idea and they feel part of a valid project necessary for the development of their business activity.
4 reasons to become a member:1
This is our main mission and we carry it out using a multifaceted campaign: our portal (the website will be rich in tourist information highlighting the local resources, guaranteeing at the same time full information to all the members), catalogue (this is the magazine to which you refer in your e-mail and that is distributed by the Tourist Office in Volterra and in all the tourist events we take part in: tourist fairs in Italy and abroad, workshops with Italian and foreign professionals, educational activities, press, etc.)
Creation and distribution of tourist brochures about Volterra and its neighbourhood to members.
This is an especially demanding and expensive activity, both from the economic and workload point of view, but extremely important because it allows the business members of the Consortium to have informative documentation to distribute to their clients. We think that, despite the continuous development of IT, several types of tourist information (maps, magazines, agenda of events…) are irreplaceable.
Starting from the idea that being part of the Consortium is an opportunity and above all means having information that non-members do not have, we believe that in this period of difficulty and uncertainty, in order to have a worldwide reach, we must work together, because only in this way can we reach our goals, something that on our own is unthinkable.
Another element not to be forgotten is that while in the past promotion was financed by the EU and had the support of public bodies, today with the spending cuts and the elimination of the APTs, promotional activity weighs entirely on the shoulders of the professionals and local authorities. For this very reason, areas like ours that are peripheral in nature as compared to the largest urban areas of Tuscany are in danger of becoming more and more marginal. This must be avoided at all costs.
T.O. Emozioni Toscane
The tour operator of the Consortium was established to more efficiently market and promote the tourist resources of our territory via the creation of pre-prepared packages for individuals and groups. Emozioni Toscane organizes weddings, meetings and boasts an extensive programme of excursions.
