DF#08 – The endless spring of hospitality

FREE DOWNLOAD – Spring 2023

DF Magazine is a magazine aimed at promoting Florence as a quality destination by Destination Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau.



The promise of spring shines through in Issue 8 of Destination Florence Magazine as leading figures from Italy’s events industry gather in Florence for Federcongressi’s annual conference and the hugely popular DUCO Travel Summit.

Arturo Galansino, the director of Palazzo Strozzi, provides insight into his strategy at the helm of the dynamic cultural center on the opening of the Reaching for the Stars exhibition, while director of Exclusive Connection Tours, Lucia Montuschi, talks about the ways in which museums can influence a city’s tourism numbers, and CEO and founder of The Social Hub, Charlie MacGregor speaks about his ethos to put people at the center of his successful hospitality brand.

Europe is at the forefront of Florence’s spring agenda as the European University Institute’s The State of the Union conference returns this May for high-level reflection on the European Union.

The destination wedding industry turns the limelight on the hills of Pisa, while Tuscany’s top resorts continue to win awards from international opinion leaders and attracts the attention of global hospitality groups.

In the meantime, Florence pursues its goal to become a city for conferences with new bids for world-class academic and scientific congresses secured through 2025.

DF Magazine promotes Florence as a quality destination and is created by the Destination Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau in partnership with The Florentine.



For 20+ years, Destination Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau has been the official association for promoting Florence as a destination. The mission is to attract quality leisure tourism, MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, events) and destination weddings.
