The Tourist Board have finally brought out an events guide for 2018.
I have had a quick look through the PDF download and it looks pretty impressive.
This is a translation from the DN
The public presentation of the ‘Madeira Yearly Events 2018’ was held this Wednesday in the auditorium of the Electricity Museum – Funchal, the region’s first event guide for 2018, at a ceremony presided over by the Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture Paula Cabaço.
The project of the Association of Promotion of the Autonomous Region of Madeira (AP Madeira), in partnership with AMRAM – Association of Municipalities of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, brings together for the first time in a single document with the main events that are part of the annual calendar of tourist Region, so that locals and tourists can discover and enjoy a set of “genuinely Madeiran moments”.
The Madeira Yearly Events 2018 is available, as of today, in digital format download it here https://issuu.com/apmadeirapt/docs/pdf__issuu and in all the tourist offices.
This “100% Madeiran and Made by Madeirans” guide (from the content and photography, gathered by AMRAM, to the illustration, by the Madeiran artist Joana Dionísio Pereira) has a bilingual edition in Portuguese and English and will be available in the initiatives of promotion abroad and at fairs, starting with FITUR – International Tourism Fair, to be held in Madrid between 17 and 21 January.
For Roberto Santa Clara, the director of the Association for the Promotion of the Autonomous Region of Madeira (AP Madeira), the systematisation of information on the events of the Region in a single document makes perfect sense as a tool to promote Madeira as a “destination of experiences” and “Year-round”, since it allows to show what is the calendar of events of the whole island “in a clear, objective and creative” form, from January 1st to December 31st, 2018.
Roberto Santa Clara also stressed the importance of the logic of “decentralisation” underlying this project, which counted on the collaboration of all municipalities in the Region, so that “the dissemination of events did not stick to Funchal.”
