New online tools reduce venue research efforts for business tourism sector in the Algarve

The Algarve offers event hosts the choice of approximately 50,000 ‘theatre’ seats in classified tourist hotels and resorts, as well as more than 25,000 in independent congress centres and meeting spaces. With all these seats on offer and a vast range of facilities to choose from, picking the right venue can be a complicated and time-consuming task for event organisers. 

To help hosts quickly identify the venues that meet their requirements and find out further information, the Algarve Tourism Bureau (ATB) has launched three new online resources; a dedicated search engine, technical brochure and information request form. The search engine provides a list of appropriate locations based on the type of event, capacity required, desired venue type and other relevant information, dramatically cutting down the research time for organisers. The technical brochure provides a fantastic overview and guide to the Portuguese region’s facilities and services, while the integrated contact form enables business to request the information they need quickly and efficiently.

“Business tourism already plays a large part in the seasonality changes the region experiences and provides a significant area for potential tourism growth for the Algarve,” says Dora Coelho, executive director of the Algarve Tourism Bureau. “This latest investment is an integral part of the ATB’s strategy for business tourism for the coming year and strengthens the Algarve’s position as a destination of excellence for MICE events.”

By providing these integrated tools that ATB is not only highlighting the Algarve’s fantastic facilities, high quality and competitive pricing but also supplying the business tourism industry with the valuable resources needed to simplify the research process.
