Umbria Convention Bureau is Launched

The Umbria Convention Bureau has been launched. It is now configured as a private consortium named Umbria Congressi, but in a few months, through agreements with public institutions, it will formally assume the format of a convention bureau.

The founding members are two consortia: UmbriaSì and Umbria Export. Umbria Congressi is a mixed public-private partnership. It raises its funds 30% from the private sector and 70% from the regional government within the national funding programme for underdeveloped areas.
