CONFERENCES IN THE ALGARVE
If you compile a checklist of the essential elements that make up an ideal conference and incentive destination, then the Algarve would seem to have it all.
Easy access? A little over two hours' flying time from most European cities, a wide choice of airlines and departure points, and quick transfer times from Faro airport to the Algarve's major hotels, towns and resort complexes.
Superb weather? With mild winters, hot summers tempered by Atlantic breezes, and warm and sunny shoulder seasons, the south of Portugal is a perfect year-round location for business and pleasure.
Quality accommodation? From luxury hotels to world-renowned golfing resorts, and from chic boutique hotels and historic pousadas to comfortable mid-range properties, the Algarve is capable of matching any event requirement or budget.
Meeting and exhibition facilities? In addition to its hotels, the region also boasts a wide range of top-class venues for conferences, conventions, business meetings, workshops, exhibitions, product launches, awards ceremonies, sporting events and cultural gatherings.
Activities and incentive ideas? Take your pick: from golf, tennis and a host of watersports to sailing, hot air ballooning, aquatic shows, vineyard tours and jeep safaris, there will always be something to keep your delegates occupied outside of the meeting room. And with over a hundred miles of superb beaches and the wide open spaces of the Monchique mountains to choose from, delegates certainly won't find themselves suffering from claustrophobia.
The appeal of the Algarve doesn't stop there.
Looking for a destination with a rich history and culture, and plenty of variety? For social activities, convention add-ons or partner programmes, the Algarve has bustling, atmospheric towns and picturesque villages, Moorish castles and Baroque mansions, and a lively and thriving arts and entertainment scene, from museums and galleries to restaurants, casinos and a vibrant nightlife.
Modern infrastructure? New motorways and an excellent network of local roads make getting around this varied but compact region easy. Trains, boats and planes are other transport options, from yachts and cruise ships to helicopters and light aircraft.
Professional assistance? Experienced and inventive destination management companies and other business service providers, from audio-visual suppliers to ground handling companies, will ensure your event goes off without a hitch.
Value for money? Portugal is one of the most inexpensive countries in western Europe, ensuring budgets covering every aspect of your event, from hotel accommodation and room hire to food and drink, will stretch a long way, without compromising on quality.
