Portugal was a pioneer in discovering new worlds, establishing relationships between different peoples and beginning what we now call globalisation. Today Portugal is the one waiting to be discovered or rediscovered as an event destination.
Portugal is certainly an excellent choice for your event for a wide array of reasons.
The country has been proving itself as a major event organiser, as evidenced by the 2004 UEFA European Championship or the reception of both the Rotary Convention and the European Diabetes Congress. You will also find great conditions to host smaller events, such as business meetings or commercial presentations internationally renowned. This diversity is only possible thanks to a wide range of highly qualified companies and professionals, as well as a diverse range of quality venues and hotels and multiple international air routes.
Among this sector's main engines are universities, research centres, the Portuguese business community and the innovation and entrepreneurship environment in the country, all responsible for granting several international events.
All these features bring Portugal more visibility among international decision makers, which reinforces the country's position in international rankings.
