Who are we?
Tourism is a very important sector of Ticino’s economy, as demonstrated by the study on the economic impact of tourism published by the Department of Finance and Economic Affairs. In fact, the sector accounts for 9.6% of the GDP and generates gross value added of 2.1 billion CHF.
The Agenzia Turistica Ticinese (ATT) is the successor of the Ente Ticinese per il Turismo founded in 1972. It is a limited company based in Bellinzona, established following the new Tourism Law that came into force on 1 January 2015. The ATT promotes and markets tourism throughout Ticino, for both leisure and business, as well as developing and managing strategic canton projects.
There are 8 shareholders in ATT SA:
- 4 Regional Tourist Boards (Organizzazioni Turistiche Regionali – OTR: Mendrisiotto e Basso Ceresio, Luganese, Bellinzonese e Alto Ticino, and Lago Maggiore e Valli)
