Portugal lead the way in exploring new worlds, establishing relationships between different people and beginning what we now call globalisation.
Today Portugal is waiting to be discovered or rediscovered as an event destination.
A rich history, diverse landscapes, hospitable people, fine wines and a rich gastronomy are some of the know attractions to those who choose to visit Portugal. Many other reasons make this country an ideal choice for your event.
The 2004 UEFA European Championship, the reception of both the Rotary Convention and the European Diabetes Congress, and recently, the Web Summit and the Eurovision Song Contest are examples that prove Portugal’s capability to host major events.
You will also find great conditions to host smaller events, such as business meetings or commercial presentations.
This diversity is only possible thanks to a wide range of highly qualified companies and professionals, as well as a variety of quality venues, hotels and excellent international connections.
Universities, research centres, the Portuguese business community, the innovation and entrepreneurship environment in the country are all responsible for attracting international events.
We look forward to assisting you in finding the right venue for your next event in Portugal!
