Founded on the 10th of October 1990 by Lourdes Fellini, Fellini Turismo undertakes its first activities within the first six months of existence with the only help of a small room and a telephone.
One year after establishment, now with a small office and an employee, Fellini began creating and operating unique itineraries for short trips within Rio Grande do Sul. In 1992, once again at a new address, the company experienced an intense period of development leading to a 200% increase in client companies, including many international.
Shortly after this, Fellini began offering its services for small scale events and associates with ABAV, IATA and ABRACE. In 1994, appears the first opportunity to carry out passenger ship hospitality services in the Port of Rio Grande as well as growth in the calendar of events. By the end of 1994, Fellini is working with 8 employees, has attended 26 events throughout the year and is the main local company offering rooming nights in Porto Alegre.
The company then successively participated more actively and consolidated associations with the following commercial and associative entities: ABEOC, EVENTPOOL, BITO e CONVENTION BUREAU.
Between 1998 and 2002, together with 10 collaborators, Fellini worked for 44 congresses and widened the scope of its commercial actions. Activities included carrying out services for companies from the whole of Latin America and developing hospitality services for international and Business missions of various countries, thereby promoting the South of Brazil as destination and important actor in Brazil. During this period Felipe Fellini Sartor, partner of Fellini, starts developing the IT sector of the company. This is followed by another period of growth, and between 2002 and 2006, Fellini worked for 79 congresses, including the Education World Forum (EWF) and the very successful Assembly of the World Council of Churches that welcomed more than five thousand participants from over 120 different countries.
By 2006 Fellini has already developed its own event management system, becomes leader in event management technology in the South of Brazil and had already worked for more than 100 different events. The team then brings together 23 people, trained to offer a top quality service, on top of temporary collaborators that go up to more than 50 people per congress.
The next step was going from a regional service to a country wide and international company operating events in various states of Brazil and some beyond borders.
In order to maximize opportunities, Fellini established partnerships with companies of the same sector and until mid 2014, is proud to have carried out its services in more than 400 events. Today we have a large number of collaborators, and prioritize technical and professional qualifications as well as the use of advanced technologies for administration, organization and marketing strategies.
