Event Venue

Porto, Portugal

Bursting with charm and beautiful scenery, Porto lies along Portugal's northwestern coastline, making this meetings-ready destination picture-perfect. The city features a number of museums and architectural highlights, as well as unique shops and restaurants, nightlife, and family-friendly adventures. The coastal city is known for its port wine production, beautiful bridges, ornate buildings, and Douro River backdrop. Visitors to Porto can arrive via Francisco Sa Carneiro Airport. Set about 8 miles outside the city center, the airport offers service to destinations throughout Europe, as well as direct access to a number of public transportation options into Porto.

 

The reliable, extensive network includes buses, trams, and light-rail options to shuttle passengers to the city's major points of interest. Meeting travelers can gather at Alfandega Congress Centre Porto, one of the largest such centers in Portugal. It offers a variety of auditoriums, multiuse rooms, and other spaces for conferences and exhibitions. The center's scenic riverside location is just 10 minutes away from the main Porto hotels and less than 30 minutes from the airport. After meetings conclude for the day, visitors can enjoy fantastic tapas, nightlife, and shopping in Ribeira, one of the oldest and most visited neighborhoods in Porto.

 

Groups can learn about the history of Porto from beautiful tile work at the Sao Bento Train Station and interactive displays at the World of Discoveries, or they can explore Livraria Lello, which is regarded as one of the best bookstores in the world. Recreation options include a stroll through Parque da Cidade (Portugal's largest urban park) or an adventure scaling a 65-meter arch on the Arrabida Bridge. To get a different view of Porto, guests can board a Rabelo boat cruise, which glides past the city's colorful waterfront buildings and under its stately bridges.
