Lisbon: the ideal location for your conference, meeting or incentive

I took the opportunity to travel to Lisbon after receiving an invitation from Lisboa Convention Bureau to visit the Portuguese capital. Here I looked at various hotels, meeting rooms and special locations, and also carried out activities relating to organizing a conference, meeting or incentive. Lisbon, as I found out, was an ideal destination for a corporate group trip.

Accessibility by air

Lisbon is very easy to reach from European airports. Various air travel companies run daily flights to Lisbon and often have good deals if you're travelling in a group. The airport is located a mere seven kilometres from the city, meaning you don't have to take a long bus ride to the hotel.

Array of hotels and meeting locations

The city has great hotels in the centre as well as in the Parque das Nações, the area which was host to the 1998 World Exhibition. Many hotels boast excellent meeting facilities, with meeting rooms for small and large groups alike What's more, Lisbon's vast selection of locations means you can swap the standard conference venue for a unique and inspiring location, making your meeting or event a guaranteed success.

Exquisite dining

Lisbon is also home to both avant-garde and classic restaurants which serve the most appetizing dishes. We recommend taking your clients or customers for dinner at the famous restaurant Eleven. 

Countless group activities

The best thing about Lisbon has to be the array of things to do in and around the city. For instance, you can go on a ride on the old tram through the historic centre, or travel by RIB-boat to the seaside resort of Cascais. Another idea is to drive a Beetle to Sintra, a small city of palaces, castles and beautiful panoramas, stopping in one of the wine cellars along the way to try the delicious wines. In short, Lisbon perfectly blends the practical with the pleasant and is bursting with options to organize the perfect corporate group trip.
