Algarve Meeting Industry - Facilities & Services Guide

A charming region for its landscapes ranging from the quiet blue of the sea and the lush green of the mountains, the Algarve’s entire splendour is worth knowing. Besides being the ideal destination for refreshing holidays, it is also the perfect venue to hold business events. 

The Algarve’s natural beauty is enriched both by the high quality touristic offer and the excellent accessibility, allowing visitors to fly directly to the international airport of Faro, the region’s capital. Hotels, resorts, restaurants and golf courses earned worldwide recognition for their excellence, acclaimed with numerous prestigious international awards.

The hospitality industry features several hotels with excellent facilities to host conferences, product launches, exhibitions, incentives and business meetings. Whether in the coast or in the breathtaking rural landscapes, luxury hotels and resorts also provide exceptional conditions for leisure, with pampering SPA's and other leisure centres ideal for well-being.

Among the many other assets that make the Algarve one of the most sought-after regions in Europe, the year-round mild climate is also a strong one, privileging visitors eager to make the most of the outdoor sites and activities. With over 300 sunny days a year and bathed by the Atlantic Ocean's waters, the Algarve is perfect to enjoy various water sports such as surfing, sailing, bodyboarding, canoeing, snorkeling and jetsky. Warm temperatures invite you to exciting jeep safaris or experience trekking routes revealing a diverse landscape and unique places of untouched nature.

Considered one of the finest golfing destinations in the world, the Algarve features a choice of internationally awarded courses, where you can appreciate the delight of sporting in impressive scenarios, making it a renowned region.

Take some time to visit and feel the atmosphere of our towns, cities and picturesque villages sustaining an important historical and cultural wealth. The architectural, archaeological and religious heritages include, to mention just a few, castles, fortresses and monuments of national interest preserving the region’s entity.

Lagos and the charismatic village of Sagres show the most symbolic landmarks of the legacy left by the epopee of the Portuguese Discoveries as it was the most important starting point of the brave navigators led by Prince Henry the Navigator.

The local cooking creativity is another major contribution to the genuineness of this beautiful region. Daily fresh fish and tasty seafood from the coastal locations, and the dishes prepared in the inland zone based on cured spicy sausages (“chouriço”) and game, flavoured with wild herbs are great examples of the regional cuisine. Enjoy these delicacies in the excellent restaurants on the coast and on upland Serra Algarvia, which excel by specialized service and offer a diverse menu. Taste the many wines produced in the region, the liquors offering unexpected flavours and the delicious regional almond and fig sweets, equally enjoyable.

The region's tourist entertainment unfolds into the night. Either in the urban centres or along the beaches you will find the most sophisticated restaurants and bars, terraces overlooking the sea, casinos and nightclubs providing you never-ending fun.

Unveil the Algarve and let it charm you, whenever you feel like it.
