Why Lisbon?

28th Sep, 2017

Spread across seven hills overlooking the majestic River Tagus, Lisbon is a key business centre and MICE powerhouse. Its ever-growing range of world-class venues, hotels and incentives options makes it a popular choice for major international events.

One will also discover a major cultural centre blessed with a mild, sunny climate, a fascinating melting pot of historic influences where its rich maritime past is interlaced with modern trends and lifestyles. Thanks to its proximity to Cascais, the World Heritage Site of Sintra and the Arrábida Natural Park, Lisbon is a ‘resort city’.

From championship golf courses to the excellent shopping to world-class gastronomy, there’s a staggering variety of leisure activities on offer in the city and the surrounding ocean, beaches, mountains and rivers for your clients.

Lisbon is deeply committed to meeting clients’ evolving needs. Founded in 1987, the Lisboa Convention Bureau (LCB) is dedicated to helping organise their events as seamlessly as possible. More than 200 associates are now affiliated with LCB, including hotels, meeting facilities, DMC’s and PCO’s.

In addition to guaranteeing the quality of its members and their services, the LCB offers impartial advice and assistance to MICE buyers and event organisers looking to hold events in the Lisbon Region.
