The Algarve Congress Centre, one of the largest and most modern facilities for meetings, conferences and events in Portugal and Europe, has opened next to Vilamoura Marina and the iconic Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Algarve Resort. After a €10 million investment from parent company Minor Hotels, the impressive new Algarve Congress Centre is now available to host gatherings with maximum convenience and flexibility, offering a selection of rooms and venues that meet all state-of-the-art needs for events ranging from seminars and parties, to conferences, product launches and much more.
Benefitting from a highly privileged location in Vilamoura, a charming central town in the popular beach destination of the Algarve, the new event space comprises 22 rooms filled with natural light, spread over a total area of 7,050 square metres, with a total capacity for 3,000 people. The congress centre includes a versatile plenary room, the Fénix, which features a 10-metre-high ceiling and is divisible into up to six individual rooms, plus a 700-square-metre terrace with 270-degree views over Vilamoura Marina and the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition, large terraces and a panoramic rooftop, totalling 2,600 square metres, promise to invigorate events with memorable views of the ocean, the beach and the marina.
The Algarve Congress Centre’s facilities are equipped with infrastructure to support heavy loads, including loading and unloading zones and plentiful complimentary parking. Large communal areas and foyers promise excellent accessibility and a comfortable atmosphere, with diverse fucntionality for holding receptions.
The venue’s staff work side-by-side with Tivoli Marina Vilamoura's team of highly experienced professionals, allowing guests to also benefit from the adjacent hotel’s diverse facilities, including five meeting rooms and an exhibition area with high ceilings, abundant natural light and harbour views.
A range of other eclectic settings across neighbouring Tivoli Marina Vilamoura are also available. The Lakeside is an outdoor venue with a unique natural lake landscape and banquet capacity of up to 1,050 guests. Purobeach Poolside can host up to 150 guests for sophisticated parties with live music or a DJ and craft cocktails. Catering options at the hotel include contemporary fusion cuisine from Pepper’s Steakhouse, the freshest and healthiest dishes from Purobeach Beachfront, Italian gastronomy at Oregano Restaurant and more. Additionally the property’s beautifully landscaped gardens can host intimate dinners and other private events.
"It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome the opening of the Algarve Congress Centre, which enhances the guest offering at Tivoli Marina Vilamoura, already one of the most prestigious five-star hotels for holding conferences and events in the Algarve, and also repositions the property as a key player in the MICE market, both in Portugal and Europe. Combining a privileged location with specialised teams, this new venue maximises our reach and ability to organise any type of event, always maintaining the precision and excellence that our patrons have become used to," says Jorge Beldade, Regional Operations Director of the Algarve region.
