ASSOCIAÇÃO DE PROMOÇÃO DA MADEIRA
The Promotion Bureau for the Autonomous Region of Madeira (AP Madeira) is a non profit organization, founded in August 2004 by a public entity and a private one – the Regional Tourist Board and the Funchal Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It was born of the need to create a body that, in conjunction with the Regional Tourist Board, would dedicate itself exclusively to promoting Madeira as a Destination. Its members include hotels, travel agencies, rent-a-car companies, official entities and companies in the leisure industry.
Madeira Promotion Bureau’s aim is to promote and spread the idea of Madeira as a destination overseas, directly to clients themselves and, in particular, to trade. Our mission is to generate opportunities for our members, especially with regards to new and specific tourist products through investment in public relations, supporting events, congresses and incentives, partnerships and promotional activities. Since August 2015, the promotion of Madeira, became Madeira Promotion Bureau total responsibility. Previously, was shared with the Regional Government Tourism Board. Teamwork, with very clear goals, makes Madeira Promotion Bureau, a strong team in promoting a destination with such huge potential as Madeira.
